Summary: SunOne App Server 7 under Solaris 8

Original question was about installing the SunOne Application Server 7 and
getting "installation aborted by user or stopped on error" messages.

Evidently the installer for the Solaris 8 version of the product is
seriously broken.  According to the online forum for this product numerous
others have had this problem and Sun engineers are trying to sort it out.

Essentially, the installer tries to install several packages, but if the
installer quits for any reason it improperly uninstalls the packages.

This leaves the machine with packages that can't be uninstalled, but are not
fully installed.  Subsequent runs of the installer abort because of this.

In short it creates a real mess on your system.  I would suggest that you
stay away from this product until Sun gets their act together on it.

I'm not sure how this will affect the stability of my systems but it has me
