J2EE: Linux J2EE Server Setup

I ran the j2ee for linux installer and had issues:

[root@cs462-2-1 src]#./java_ee_sdk-5-linux.bin
Checking available disk space...
Checking Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment...
Launching Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment...
Deleting temporary files...


But then it would appear to hang. Well it wasn't really hanging. I've installed j2ee sdk before in linux on suse where there was a gui available, but this time I needed to do it via linux terminal (command line).

Solution: use the -console flag
[root@cs462-2-1 src]#./java_ee_sdk-5-linux.bin -console


Once we used the -console flag we were able to get past the "Deleting temporary files" output, and were give a console based installer UI that made us say yes to a license agreement, and choose the install path etc.
