By default it's not possible to install the sun application server version 8.2 on ubuntu or debian. I always got the following error:
./sjsas_pe-8_2-linux.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
But the following link gave me the solution: http://www.javafree.org/javabb/viewtopic.jbb?t=853068
- Install the package "libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2". This package is by default available in the sources, so you can use synaptic or any other package manager
- Download the sun application server from: http://java.sun.com/j2ee/1.4/download.html
- chmod u+x sjsas_pe-8_2-linux.bin
- Follow the on screen instructions.
