Setting up GlassFish for production on OpenSolaris
By alexismp on Feb 20, 2009
Installing GlassFish for developing is fairly easy and you are even given multiple options (simple JAR installer, Sun installer, IzPack-based installer, and now zip-based for v3). Installing GlassFish for production certainly needs a bit more care.
Brian Leonard over at the OpenSolaris "Observatory" blog has a recent entry on how to setup GlassFish for production use in a cluster profile. It covers installation from the update center, user setup, domain directory, and SMF service creation.
