They're Head Over Heels: Comms Suite 5 Deployment Example for Linux

Yes, Comms Suite runs on more than Solaris, remember that other OS--Linux? Thanks to Shane H., we now have an 'offical' quick start guide for installing the Comms Suite 5 stack on Linux.

Comms Suite 5 Single Host Deployment: Not Just for Solaris Anymore

A while back, one of the Messaging Server gurus allowed me to post his doc on deploying all of Communications Suite 5 on a single host running Linux. We were hoping to get some feedback on this doc before making it into an official member of the Comms product doc set. Well, now it looks like we at least got one confirmation that it all works. See http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jspa?messageID=9774024 for details.

So, I guess this means I have to find time to make good on my promise to produce another Sun approved manual. I just live for these moments.

Comms Suite 5 - Docs to Go (Installing on Linux)

Unfortunately, our internal pubs processes are very weighty. That's not always a bad thing, we need to ensure quality, technical accuracy, and so on. But for some docs, it doesn't make sense to make you wait while the wheels of Sun Pubdom grind slowly on.

But I'm starting to look at this blog as the ultimate cheepo publishing system, for some information at least: a docs-to-go kind of place.

Bottom line: Customers want information quickly. So I'll experiment a bit with a doc that a support expert has readied: Deployment Example: Sun Java Communications Suite 5 on a Single Host (Linux). I know some of you have requested this already, (the doc is really an updated version of the same example on Solaris) and so I'm making a decision: rather than pipe this through the normal (slowww) pubs channels and wrap the info in near-Nirvanic Sun formatting, I'm redirecting it as is to this blog.

Doc Summary: This deployment example describes how to install Sun Java Communications Suite 5 software on one Linux computer for a functioning deployment. This document is intended for any evaluator, system administrator, or installation technician who wants to install and evaluate the services delivered by these components.

As an experiment, I'll leave it up to this community to let me know if you find any corrections and I'll take the responsibility to keep the doc up-to-date if you find something that needs fixing. Who knows, perhaps this could become a new and faster way to get certain kinds of information into your hands.
