Installing J2EE 1.3 beta (May 2000) bundle from Sun
This is a log of my install of Sun's J2EE SDK under Linux RH6.2 on 600MHz
Pentium III with 256MB of RAM.
My RH6.2 PC has all the updates until end of February 2001. It also had
updated kernel, and Oracle installed. For details look at, my Oracle install notes.

Installing the Standard Edition of Java 2 1.3

Before you can run J2EE, you need to install J2SE. I logged in as root. JDK1.3. It is available from I took the Linux x86 distribution j2sdk-1_3_0_02-linux.bin 27,092,454 bytes. I also downloaded the Documentation bundle for J2SDK: j2sdk-1_3_0-update1-doc.tar.gz = 13,186,129 bytes. I retrieved the j2sdk-1_3_0_02-linux.bin and j2sdk-1_3_0-update1-doc.tar.gz from Sun and saved them in /tmp/jdk on my Linux PC. I unpacked them first in /tmp/jdk to make sure what are the top directories they create. Then I did a real install as: cd /tmp/jdk mv j2sdk-1_3_0_02-linux.bin /usr/local cd /usr/local sh j2sdk-1_3_0_02-linux.bin I said Yes, and it unpacked creating the directory: /usr/local/jdk1.3.0_02 I removed my previous link to jdk1.3 (I had previous version installed before). and temporarily moved /usr/local/jdk1.3.0_02 to /usr/local/jdk1.3 cd /usr/local rm jdk1.3 mv jdk1.3.0_02 jdk1.3 Now, I installed documentation bundle and moved jdk1.3 back to what it was and make a link, and then updated my environment. cd /tmp/jdk mv j2sdk-1_3_0-update1-doc.tar.gz /usr/local cd /usr/local tar zxvf j2sdk-1_3_0-update1-doc.tar.gz mv jdk1.3 jdk1.3.0_02 ln -s jdk1.3.0_02 jdk1.3 JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/jdk1.3 PATH=${PATH}:${JAVA_HOME}/bin CLASSPATH=${JAVA_HOME}/lib/dt.jar:${JAVA_HOME}/lib/tools.jar export JAVA_HOME PATH CLASSPATH At this point I created in the file /root/ where I was callecting all needed environment variables so I can log out any moment and then restore the needed environment by sourcing this script: . /root/ At this moment, the script was: JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/jdk1.3 PATH=${PATH}:${JAVA_HOME}/bin CLASSPATH=${JAVA_HOME}/lib/dt.jar:${JAVA_HOME}/lib/tools.jar export JAVA_HOME PATH CLASSPATH Then I deleted the compressed archives from /usr/local and/or the /tmp/jdk directory (actually, I did not delete them, but saved them in my upload directory in case I ever need them again).

Installing the secure sockets and crypto stuff.

Installed JCE 1.2.1 Java Cryptography Extension 1.2.1 Go to: Click on: Download JCE 1.2.1 Software, policy files, and docs This will get you: I assume that you saved it in /tmp mkdir /usr/local/JCE cd /usr/local/JCE cp /tmp/ . unzip Then added the security provider to Java: a) copied JCE jars to lib/ext cp -p /usr/local/JCE/jce1.2.1/lib/*.jar /usr/local/jdk1.3/jre/lib/ext CLASSPATH=${CLASSPATH}:${JAVA_HOME}/jre/lib/ext/jce1_2_1.jar export CLASSPATH b) edited /usr/local/jdk1.3/jre/lib/security/ and added line: security.provider.3=com.sun.crypto.provider.SunJCE Installed JSSE (JavaTM Secure Socket Extension (JSSE) 1.0.2) available from mkdir /usr/local/jsse with a browser go to: Click on domestic distribution Logged in, accepted, continue, answered Yes, Continue, downloaded (to /tmp for example cd /usr/local/jsse cp /tmp/ . unzip I installed the JSSE as "installed extension" for jdk1.3 and copied them to /usr/local/jdk1.3/jre/lib/ext directory ($JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/ext): cp -p /usr/local/jsse/jsse1.0.2/lib/*jar ${JAVA_HOME}/jre/lib/ext CLASSPATH=${CLASSPATH}:${JAVA_HOME}/jre/lib/ext/jcert.jar CLASSPATH=${CLASSPATH}:${JAVA_HOME}/jre/lib/ext/jnet.jar CLASSPATH=${CLASSPATH}:${JAVA_HOME}/jre/lib/ext/jsse.jar export CLASSPATH Then, I registered the provider in $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/ by adding a line:

Installing the J2EE

Went to the site: and downloaded the Java 2 SDK Enterprise Edition v1.2.1 for Linux as one file. I downloaded them to /tmp (but in fact, I have some special directory where I keep my downloads). The file was: j2sdkee-1_2_1-linux.tar.gz =10,079,329 I also downloaded the documentation bundle. The file was: j2sdkee-1_2_1-doc-linux.tar.gz = 4,466,923 bytes. I used tar ztvf file to check what is the top directory of the distribution. They both have j2sdkee1.2.1 as top. I assume that you do not have the /usr/local/j2ee directory yet. If you have, move it to j2ee-old or something. So what I did is: cd /usr/local tar zxvf /tmp/j2sdkee-1_2_1-linux.tar.gz tar zxvf /tmp/j2sdkee-1_2_1-doc-linux.tar.gz ln -s j2sdkee1.2.1 j2ee I coied the file /usr/local/j2ee/bin/ to cd /usr/local/j2ee/bin cp -p / and edited to be: ---------------- cut -------------------------- # J2EE_CLASSPATH is appended to the classpath referenced by the EJB server. # J2EE_CLASSPATH must include the location of the JDBC driver classes # (except for the Cloudscape driver shipped with this release). # Each directory is delimited by a colon. ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/ export ORACLE_HOME # is the JDBC driver with debug info J2EE_CLASSPATH=${ORACLE_HOME}/jdbc/lib/ J2EE_CLASSPATH=${J2EE_CLASSPATH}:${ORACLE_HOME}/jdbc/lib/ export J2EE_CLASSPATH if [ "xXx$LD_LIBRARY_PATH" != "xXx" ]; then LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}:${ORACLE_HOME}/jdbc/lib else LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${ORACLE_HOME}/jdbc/lib fi export LD_LIBRARY_PATH # JAVA_HOME refers to the directory where the Java(tm) 2 SDK # Standard Edition software is installed. JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/jdk1.3 export JAVA_HOME # No JIT compiler by default JAVA_COMPILER=NONE export JAVA_COMPILER ---------------- cut -------------------------- I created a user and group j2eeinst and j2eerun as: groupadd j2eeinst useradd j2eeinst -g j2eeinst passwd j2eeinst groupadd j2eerun useradd j2eerun -g j2eerun passwd j2eerun The j2eeinst user (the installer) will own the files, while the j2eerun will be the user id which which the J2EE components will be running. I then changed the ownership of files under /usr/local/j2ee to j2eeinst cd /usr/local/j2ee chown -R j2eeinst.j2eeinst . I then loggout as root, and logged in as j2eeinst. I edited the .bash_profile file in my /home/j2eeinst to be: ----------- cut ---------------- # .bash_profile # Get the aliases and functions if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then . ~/.bashrc fi # User specific environment and startup programs PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin BASH_ENV=$HOME/.bashrc USERNAME="j2eeinst" export USERNAME BASH_ENV PATH alias emacs='emacs -nw' JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/jdk1.3 export JAVA_HOME PATH=${PATH}:${JAVA_HOME}/bin CLASSPATH=${JAVA_HOME}/lib/dt.jar:${JAVA_HOME}/lib/tools.jar export JAVA_HOME PATH CLASSPATH J2EE_HOME=/usr/local/j2ee export J2EE_HOME JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/jdk1.3 CLASSPATH=${CLASSPATH}:${JAVA_HOME}/jre/lib/ext/jce1_2_1.jar export CLASSPATH CLASSPATH=${CLASSPATH}:${JAVA_HOME}/jre/lib/ext/jcert.jar CLASSPATH=${CLASSPATH}:${JAVA_HOME}/jre/lib/ext/jnet.jar CLASSPATH=${CLASSPATH}:${JAVA_HOME}/jre/lib/ext/jsse.jar export CLASSPATH ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/ export ORACLE_HOME ------------- cut ------------ and sourced this file: . /home/j2eeinst/.bash_profile I then started to read the docs in my browser: file:///usr/local/j2ee/doc/release/ConigGuide.html

JDBC Drivers:

Copied the JDBC drivers from Oracle to $J2EE_HOME/lib/system: cd $J2EE_HOME/lib/system mkdir oracle cd oracle cp -p $ORACLE_HOME/jdbc/lib/* .
Then I edited the file /usr/local/j2ee/bin/ In my case the ORACLE_HOME was: /u01/app/oracle/product/ cp $ORACLE petstore 1.1.1 = 3,283,481 bytes 1.1.1 Release November 15, 2000 JavaTM Pet Store, v. 1.1.1 sample application Download Java(TM) 2 SDK Enterprise Edition 1.3 (BETA) j2sdkee-1_3-beta-linux.tar.gz 13,102,721 (SDK) j2sdkee-1_3-beta-doc-linux.tar.gz = 4,712,557 bytes. (DOC) = 47,547 (Sample)
