Bill and Mike:
OK, the beta 2 version is installed on sunray, rosen, guilden, and bopeep.
I've re-started the servers on guilden and, I believe, things are OK.
Just for reference, this is what I do:
1. I download the "package" version of the j2sdk and store it in my home
2. I then extract the compressed file using:
zcat j2sdk-1_4_0-beta2-solsparc.tar.Z | tar -xf -
3. I then become root and cd to my home idrectory.
4. I then remove the old version with:
pkgrm SUNWj3dmo SUNWj3man SUNWj3dev SUNWj3rt
which removes demo files, man pages, development environment, and runtime
5. Then, still as root (and from my home directory), I install the new version
pkgadd -d . SUNWj3rt SUNWj3dev SUNWj3man SUNWj3dmo
6. Then, in order to "turn off" the default jce (which we can't yet use with
our ABA crypto stuff), I go to /usr/j2se/jre/lib and do a "mv jce.jar
This default process installs everything in /usr/j2se.
This is the only thing that I do on rosen and sunray.
On bopeep, I have not added the SUNWj3dmo package (the demo stuff) because of
disk space limitations in the / partition.
On guilden, again because of limitations in the /usr partition, I actually
install everything in /app/j2se and then have a link that points from
/usr/j2se to /app/j2se.
The way to over-ride the default base directory from /usr to /app is a little
non-standard so I'll repeat it here:
This is done with the "-a" flag of the pkgadd command:
pkgadd -a /var/sadm/install/admin/basedir_ask -d . SUWNj3rt
When it asks for the base directory for installation, the answer on guilden is
/app ... this will install everything in /app/j2se.
In any event, let me know if there appear to be any problems with the new JDK.
