This section describes the installation of WebSphere Application Server V5.0 Enterprise edition. This edition addresses large information technology (IT) production scenarios for applications that are designed according to the core, standards-based programming model of Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) and Web services.
This section provides step-by-step instructions for installing WebSphere Application Server Enterprise edition with the least amount of configuration.
Insert and mount the WebSphere Application Server V5 Enterprise CD-ROM on the X desktop:
# mount /mnt/cdrom
Start the WebSphere Application Server Enterprise LaunchPad:
# cd /mnt/cdrom # ./LaunchPad.sh
If you install WebSphere Application Server Enterprise with a .tar file, you can use the tar command to extract all files, and then use the cd /linuxppc/ and ./LaunchPad.sh commands.
# tar -xvf c51vmml.tar # cd /linuxppc # ./LaunchPad.sh
In the language selection window, select your language and click OK. We chose English.
In the WebSphere Application Server Enterprise LaunchPad window, click Install the product, as shown in Figure 2-70.
