Part 12: Glassfish V3 Pet Catalog sample DEMO in VM Template - Clean and Convert

OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype was designed as PURE CLI enviroment providing main building stone for creation of Virtual Appliances or VM Templates

In this example I will DEMOnstrate creation of Evaluation type Virtual Appliance / VM Template which will leveradge OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS prototype and just in Dec/09 released Glassfish v3, Java EE 6 and Netbeans 6.8 with simple Java EE 6 demo. This entry is part of Virtual Appliances & OVF workshop.

New Glassfish V3 introduce an unique network repository based modular structure, so we can more easily create really simple initial DEMO setup which user can extend by installation more samples right from Glassfish V3 repository or from Netbeans GUI.


Step 6: Clean and Convert VM
   Step 6c: Generate VirtualBOX 3.x VDI IDE format
      Convert VMDK SCSI to VDI IDE format with VirtualBox
      Configure VirtualBox for VDI IDE
      Reconfigure HW with VA Live-CD in VirtualBox?for VDI IDE
   Step 6d: Generate Parallels format       Open in Parallels JeOS image and recreate OS disk
      Restore from ZFS stream from VA Live-CD
      Add Freeware NI network driver
   Step 6e: Generate xVM/XEN compatible PARA and HVM RAW disk formats
