wget http://dlc.sun.com.edgesuite.net/glassfish/4.1/release/glassfish-4.1.zip
unzip glassfish-4.1.zip -d /opt

Startup Glassfish just to make sure all is well
cd /opt/glassfish4/bin
./asadmin start-domain

Install the start/stop scripts for Glassfish
./asadmin create-service

Change the blank/empty admin password to something else
./asadmin change-admin-password

Enable secure administration so you can administer via web interface from another PC
./asadmin enable-secure-admin

Enable a listener port so that you can front Glassfish with Apache
./asadmin create-network-listener --protocol http-listener-1 --listenerport 8009 --jkenabled true jk-connector

cp postgresql-9.3-1102.jdbc41.jar /opt/glassfish4/glassfish/domains/domain1/lib/ext (PostgreSQL Driver)
cp mysql-connector-java-5.1.31-bin.jar /opt/glassfish4/glassfish/domains/domain1/lib/ext (MySQL Driver)
