    As the title says'

    I plan to install WaveMaker Studio, which is an development platform for Web-Applications, on my ISPC 3 Debian Server.

    Firstly I've to install JAVA JDK. Are there any problems for to do so? I'll have to download a specific version from here: have to run the binary and use the commands:
    chmod +x jdk-6u45-linux-x64.bin #Adding execute permission
    cp jdk-6u45-linux-x64.bin /opt
    cd /opt
    which will create the folder jdk1.6.0.45

    After that I need to update the Path and add JAVA_HOME env variable
    echo 'export PATH=$PATH:/opt/jdk1.6.0_45/bin' >> ~/.bashrc
    echo 'export JAVA_HOME=/opt/jdk1.6.0_45' >> ~/.bashrc
    source ~/.bashrc[code]
    Than, download WaveMaker from: [I][B][/B][/I] and instal:
    [code]dpkg -i wavemaker_6.6.0.RELEASE_amd64.db
    Start WavMaker:
    WaveMaker will use Post 8094 and I've to start the Studio from a browser (I use Chrome) with {server-IP}:8094/wavemaker

    Would all of that OK?

    best to test it in a vm

    You're maybe right, but I would like to know if the commands etc are OK also regarding Java!

    To spend time and effort with something I don't know it's correct or worst it wouldn't work at all, could be prevented to cross check first.

    Thanks anyway for your answer.

    I'am not using that software. You might want to ask this in the support forum or mailinglist of the software wavemaker.

    why not? setup virtualbox on your desktop and inside setup ISPC as a VM and then you can test it.

    Firstly I don't like "emulated" hardware system because they never reflect the actual!

    Secondly, I'm not familary with VM at all.

    OK, I understood.

    Just the question's as posted: could trhat works?

    That was what I was getting from WaveMaker Dev.

    How should I know if that could work when I dont use the software? The commands you posted look like Linux commands, so it might be that they do what you want them to do. And if the developer of that software send you these commands to install his software, then I guess you should expect that they are suitable to install wavemaker.

    Hardware doesn't matter in your case since you 'd like to know if some piece of software runs against some Java binary... that's all software...

    VirtualBox is free (as in free beer) and there's not much you need to be familiar about it...

    Using VMs to test out things - especially server related - is great. You should give it a go.

    Maybe I wasn't precise enough?!

    What I want to know is 1. about Java (any pre-caution with ISPConfig?) and 2.
    are the command syntax are ok for to use with Debian 7.

    Maybe I install Debian on an other computer as kinda Test-Server and try those there without to "damage" anything.

    And I also need to be sure that there didn't come anything in conflict with ISPConfig.

    As I like to ask BEFORE doing, because it could save a lot of time and for sure headache, seems many like it the opposite way.

    OK, never mind, it's life, sometimes up and sometimes down.

    Understood! But: 1. I couldn't use my Production Server and neither my Production Desktop for that because both of them has to be on the LAN and WAN 24/7 and couldn't be used for such testing; 2. I would need to setup an new computer just for that testings which would need quite a bit of hardware, incl. extra Monitor's and KM's and for sure extra space, beside of others.

    Anyway as I wrote in an other post before, I may setup and test Debian Server which could stand in some "corner" after initial setup, no further need of KVM! OK, have to think and plan about such.

    Thanks for you answers.

    I think you misunderstand what VirtualBox is... just use any Desktop Computer that was some diskspace left and hasn't exhausted all ram and during installation of VirtualBox there's only a small disconnection in your network connection... won't even take a second.

    Then you run a virtualized machine on your Desktop. The virtualized machine is another Window on your Desktop like you have a Browser Window etc... and inside that window, a virtual system is fully deployed based on your installation cd... it can be windows or linux or whatever...

    Have a luck at VirtualBox... it's really nice software to just setup a test instalaltion of something....

    There's no need for a KVM and stuff :)

    The java virtual machine is not confliction with ispconfig, but this does not mean that a app written in java will not cause a confllict. The commands you posted are commands in normal bash syntax, so they should work on any Linux or unix like operating system that runs a bash console. The dpkg command is correct for installing debian packages manually, you just missed the "b" at the end of the package name as the file exension for debian packages is normally .deb
