GlassFish 220.127.116.11, Debian stable (7, "Wheezy"), OpenJDK 7u2+, amd64
It seems GlassFish is incompatible with Debian 7 due to an LSB incompliance.
As a result GlassFish is neither starting at host boot, neither the update-rc.d script is able to modify the runlevel settings of the created Service. But manually invoking e. g. /etc/rc2.d/S20GlassFish_domain1 in fact does boot GlassFish correctly when executed manually at the command line!
An identified workaround is to execute the following commands:
This sequence of commands actually fixed the problem very well, but certainly a future GlassFish release should produce rc*.d entries which do not need this Manual fix!
I know that Debian is not officially supported, but as it looks as an LSB incomplicance to me, it would be good to fix this anyways.
