Hi,

I'm a 10 years experienced Java programmer, but I'm only starting Java EE 6, coming from 4. I'm a fellow Ubuntu user for 6 years (read "user", not "administrator", even if I have the sudo access).

So I just bought a book called "Beginning Java EE 6 with Glassfish 3". While the book is very interesting, I just don't know how to perform all the installations Antonio Goncalves describes in his book, since he says "Linux and OS X are not supported in this book". Well, I would like to get all the software Goncalves speaks about in his book. That means:
* JDK 1.6 (that's ok, I got it)
* JUnit 4 (that's also ok, no issue with this)
* Maven 2
* Java DB
* GlassFish 3

So how can I get these installed? I've never worked with a Maven, Java DB or GlassFish before. All the previous installations I had (meaning Weblogic and other Java EE 4 application servers) were done by a system admin, not me.

All of those applications are just Java applications in their own right, so you should not need to do much to install them beyond set the odd environment variable.

JavaDB is part of JDK 1.6, so you should have that already. I think it's an option, though, so you may have turned it off during JDK installation, in which case you can get it here. See this article for a general introduction.

Maven 2: http://maven.apache.org/download.html has the download and installation instructions

GlassFish 3 is here. It's an installer that also walks you through configuration and starts the server. It has lots and lots of documentation.
