Hardy does Java

Downloaded a copy of WebSphere Application Server Community Edition ( aka WASCE ) the other day as I continue to play with WebSphere Portlet Factory on Ubuntu.

The

However, I found two very useful documents that helped me with the installation: -

WebSphere Application Server Community Edition Documentation Project - Installing a server

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/wasce/V1.1.0/en/Tasks/Install/Installing.html#Linux_install_from_wasce_setup-version-unix_bin

IBM - Ubuntu-specific installation instructions for WebSphere Application Server Community Edition

http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=2359&uid=swg27009332

For me, the trick was to download the full-fat version of WASCE which includes the IBM Java2 SDK: -

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/wasce/V1.1.0/en/Tasks/Install/Installing.html#Linux_install_from_wasce_ibm150sdk_setup-version-ia32linux_tar

and then convert it using Alien: -

$ sudo alien ibm-java2-i386-sdk-5.0-2.0.i386.rpm

and then install it using Dpkg: -

$ sudo dpkg -i ibm-java2-i386-sdk_5.0-3_i386.deb


Job done.
