Pre-Workshop Setup Instructions: Java Development

Welcome to the Oracle Technology Network Developer Day - Java Development hands-on lab (HOL) installation instructions. This is a bring-your-own-laptop workshop; this document describes how to install a virtual guest appliance that provides pre-configured software for your use while working on the HOLs.

This appliance is necessary for completing the HOLs in the Server and Desktop tracks only; local install is required for the Mobile track and the Embedded track has no HOL.

Please note that this appliance is for testing purposes only, as such it is unsupported and should not to be used in production environment. This virtual machine contains:

  • Java SE (JDK) 1.6.0 u20 (note: Mac OS X 10.5 users must use Apple update)
  • Java FX 1.3.1 runtime
  • NetBeans IDE 6.9.1
  • GlassFish Server Open Source Edition 3.0.1 (installed with NetBeans)
  • JRockit Mission Control 4.0.1
  • Eclipse 3.6

Requirements

  • Operating System: Any
  • RAM: 2GB+ RAM
  • Disk: About 7GB free
  • Required Software: Virtual Box 4.0 or later

Setup

Step 1. Download and install Oracle VM VirtualBox on your host system.

Step 2. Right-click and choose Save As... to download the files: (OTN Login required):

MD5 of assembled file:

GlassFish-Developer-Days-disk1.vmdk = bd1aa53e9fb69a3a466970c81cd49f3a

Step 3. Assemble these files using the provided scripts. We highly recommend checking MD5 sums on all the parts, *and* the assembled file before attempting an import.

* For Windows use the script assemble.cmd
* For Linux/Unix use the script assemble.sh

Step 4. Import your VM: File > Import Appliance to launch Appliance Import Wizard. Click Choose... to browse to the directory you re-assembled all the files in and select the GlassFish-Developer-Days.ovf, then click Next> to begin importing the virtual machine. It will prompt you to agree to the appropriate developer licenses while importing. You will see 'GlassFish-Developer-Days.ovf' (Powered Off)' when it is finished importing.

Step 5. Test your VM: Once the import has completed, double-click the OTN Developer Days VM. Click OK to close the VirtualBox dialogs. When you get to the Linux 5 screen you can now login. The username and password is glassfish/glassfish. Once you are finished working in the guest VM you can shut it down via System > Shut Down; this will return the guest VM to the Powered Off state. Lab documents and  resources are located in folders on the desktop.  

Step 5. Test your VM: Once the import has completed, double-click the VM and login as glassfish/glassfish to begin. Lab documents and  resources are located in folders on the desktop.  

Once you are finished working in the guest VM you can shut it down via System > Shut Down; this will return the guest VM to the Powered Off state.
