This appendix is a general guide for the installation of the Java EE 7 SDK. We’ll provide the basic instructions for installing the software and give a very brief introduction to the GlassFish Administration Console. We won’t go into much more detail because documentation on any Java EE server can be an entire book on its own. We suggest you check out the GlassFish home page (https://glassfish.java.net/) for additional information on how to use and configure GlassFish.
The ActionBazaar code examples for this book are all Maven-based and generate artifacts that may be deployed to GlassFish. This appendix will show you how to build and deploy the “Hello World” application from chapter 1.
