Mac OS X Support for Java EE 5 SDK
By Nazrul on May 25, 2007
I just tried to install Java EE SDK on my MacBook Pro. I have Mac OS X (version 10.4.9) running on it with 1 GB RAM. The installation went smoothly. After downloading the bits (85.67 MB), I unzipped it on my desktop.
I needed to change the file permission of setup to start the installer....
% cd "java_ee_sdk-5_02-mac Folder" % chmod u+x setup % ./setup
The installer wizard screens of SDK are fairly straight forward to follow. On the Admin Configuration screen, I typed in the password for the Admin User and picked the default ports. On the next screen [Ready to Install], I clicked on Install Now to complete the installation. Refer to the installation instructions for more details. In the Release Notes, I noticed two Mac specific issues with workarounds.
You may use the Application Server Quick Start Guide to get started. After starting the Application Server instance, I typically log in to the Admin Console to manage it. You may also want to try the very popular Java EE 5 Tutorial with your downloaded SDK.
