EJB - Environment Setup

Advertisements


EJB is a framework for Java, so the very first requirement is to have JDK installed in your machine.

System Requirement

JDK1.5 or above.
Memoryno minimum requirement.
Disk Spaceno minimum requirement.
Operating Systemno minimum requirement.

Step 1 - verify Java installation in your machine

Now open console and execute the following java command.

OSTaskCommand
WindowsOpen Command Consolec:\> java -version
LinuxOpen Command Terminal$ java -version
MacOpen Terminalmachine:~ joseph$ java -version

Let's verify the output for all the operating systems:

OSOutput
Windows java version "1.6.0_21"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_21-b11)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.21-b01, mixed mode)
Linux java version "1.6.0_21"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_21-b11)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.21-b01, mixed mode)
Mac java version "1.6.0_21"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_21-b11)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.21-b01, mixed mode)

If you do not have Java installed, install the Java Software Development Kit (SDK) from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html. We are assuming Java 1.6.0_21 as installed version for this tutorial.

Step 2: Set JAVA environment

Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to the base directory location where Java is installed on your machine. For example

OSOutput
WindowsSet the environment variable JAVA_HOME to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_21
Linuxexport JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/java-current
Macexport JAVA_HOME=/Library/Java/Home

Append Java compiler location to System Path.

OSOutput
WindowsAppend the string ;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_21\bin to the end of the system variable, Path.
Linuxexport PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin/
Macnot required

Verify Java Installation using java -version command explained above.

Step 3: Download and Install NetBeans IDE

Download latest version of NetBeans IDE from https://netbeans.org/downloads/index.html. At the time of writing this tutorial, I downloaded Netbeans 7.3 which comes bundled with JDK 1.7. using following link http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

OSInstaller name
WindowsNetbeans 7.3
LinuxNetbeans 7.3
MacNetbeans 7.3

Step 4: Setup JBoss Application Server:

You can download the latest version of JBoss Server from http://www.jboss.org/jbossas/downloads/. Download the archive as per the platform. Extract the Jboss to any location on your machine.

OSFile name
Windowsjboss-5.1.0.GA-jdk6.zip
Linuxjboss-5.1.0.GA-src.tar.gz
Macjboss-5.1.0.GA-src.tar.gz

Step 5: Configure JEE Plugins to Netbeans

Open Plugin window using Tools > Plugins. Open "Available Plugin" tab and select "Java EE Base" and "EJB and EAR" under "Java Web and EE" category. Click install button. Netbeans will download and install the respective plugins. Verify plugins installation using "Installed" tab.

Installed plugins

Step 6: Configure JBoss Server in Netbeans

Go to Services tab and right click on servers to add a new server.

Add Server

Add Server Instance wizard will open. Select JBoss and in next step enter the relevant details to configure server in netbeans.

Choose Server

Once everything is cofigured, you'll see the following screen.

Installed servers

Step 7: Install Database Server (PostGreSql)

Download latest version of PostGreSql database server from http://www.postgresql.org/download/. At the time of writing this tutorial, I downloaded PostGreSql 9.2

OSInstaller name
WindowsPostGreSql 9.2
LinuxPostGreSql 9.2
MacPostGreSql 9.2
