An easy guide to get glassfish4 and java7 running on you centos 6 server.
First install the java7 and get java working on your server.
Then we download and setup glassfish4.
Installing Java 7
Go to the java download page and get an version of java 7 jdk version. You must first download to you desktop and then copy the jdk over to you server. Oracel don’ t support direct download of java to you server :-(.
I got the file jdk-7u21-linux-x64.tar.gz
Then unpack the file and put in into the folder /usr/java
default -> /usr/java/latest jdk1.6.0_37 jdk1.7.0_21 latest -> jdk1.7.0_21/
I have an old java 1.6 there as well and then i can change java by changing the latest link.
But no its pointing to the latest java 1.7.
Run the command java -version and you should see the same output as I
