Ubuntu Sun Java Web Server Install
Please note that Oracle Iplanet Web Server is not supported on Ubuntu. For the purposes of this document, I am referring to Iplanet version 7.09.
Download the appropriate Web server. I recommend downloading the 32 bit version. Also note that I ran this under an Ubuntu 10.04 VM running Windows XP 2002 Service Pack 3 on a Dell Optiplex 780/Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 @ 3.16 GHz with 3GB of RAM, and with several Java applications loaded it out performed an IBM,9110-51A @ 2GHz with 32 GB of RAM running AIX. Now, I would be giving the IBM server an injustice if I did not mention the fact that it is running an Oracle 10G database, JBoss, Active MQ and SJSWS. But, still! The performance of Iplanet on Ubuntu was very surprising.

The following steps had to perform on my machine; however, I read quite a few articles where this step did not have to be performed. Nevertheless, after I performed the following steps Iplanet/Sun Java Web server installed successfully.
