Installing GlassFish on Ubuntu 18.04

GlassFish is an open-source application server that implements the Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) platform. It provides a robust, scalable, and flexible environment for developing and running enterprise applications. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of installing GlassFish on Ubuntu 18.04.

Step 1: Install Java Development Kit (JDK)

Before installing GlassFish, we need to ensure that Java Development Kit (JDK) is installed on our system. Open the terminal and run the following command:

sudo apt update sudo apt install default-jdk

Step 2: Download and Extract GlassFish

Visit the official GlassFish website (https://glassfish.java.net) and download the latest version of GlassFish. Once the download is complete, navigate to the directory where the file is located using the terminal and run the following command:

tar -zxvf glassfish*.zip

Step 3: Set Environment Variables

We need to set the environment variables for GlassFish to be able to run properly. Open the terminal and run the following commands:

export GLASSFISH_HOME=/path/to/your/glassfish/directory export PATH=$PATH:$GLASSFISH_HOME/bin

Replace "/path/to/your/glassfish/directory" with the actual path to the glassfish directory that you extracted in the previous step.

Step 4: Start GlassFish

To start GlassFish, run the following command in the terminal:

asadmin start-domain

You should see a message indicating that the domain has started successfully. You can now access the GlassFish administration console by opening a web browser and navigating to "http://localhost:4848".

Step 5: Stop GlassFish

To stop GlassFish, open the terminal and run the following command:

asadmin stop-domain


Congratulations! You have successfully installed GlassFish on Ubuntu 18.04. You can now leverage its powerful features for developing and running your Java Enterprise applications.
