-glassfish (Java EE Application Server)
+Glassfish is an open-source application server for the Java EE platform.
+Glassfish is the reference implementation of Java EE and as such supports
+Enterprise JavaBeans, JPA, JavaServer Faces, JMS, RMI, JavaServer Pages and
-It is an open-source application server for the Java EE platform.
-It supports Enterprise JavaBeans, JPA, JavaServer Faces, JMS, RMI,
-JavaServer Pages, servlets, etc.
+You must have a "glassfish" user and a "glassfish" group to run this script:
+ groupadd -g 263 glassfish
+ useradd -u 263 -g glassfish -d /var/lib/glassfish -s /bin/false glassfish
-On 64bit platforms without multilib, updatetool and pkg don't work.
+The SlackBuild will use /var/lib/glassfish to store domain and node
+configuration files. The default domain1 will be installed to /var/lib but note
+that this will be overwritten on upgrade, so it is advised to install any
+applications into a differently-named domain.
-If "asadmin start-domain" fails to start a domain after executing
-updatetool, then updatetool may have written "proxy.use.system: true"
-in "$GLASSFISH_HOME/.updatetool/init.cfg". Since Java SE depends on
-GNOME libraries to detect system proxy, system proxy should be disabled
-on slackware. In this case,
-1) try "http_proxy= asadmin start-domain" or
-2) set proxy.use.system to false in "$GLASSFISH_HOME/.updatetool/init.cfg" or
-3) remove "$GLASSFISH_HOME/.updatetool" entirely.
+The rc.glassfish script will operate on the default domain unless another is
+specified on the command line.
