ubuntu 10.4

Recently I installed "ubuntu 10.4" as a dual boot with windows 7. Also completed setup for java development environment on linux.
While doing this activity I got help from lot of forums and blogs for installing each utility and tool.
Just revising all steps here so that it will be useful for my friends.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Installing ubuntu 10.4:

Prepare Ubuntu 10.4 installer in USB as given on ubuntu site.
http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download

Now restart your system and use this USB as boot device for installing "Ubuntu 10.4"

I found one video very useful for this:

Once installtion is completed, next time when system is restarted you will get option for selection of windows7 or linux.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Setup Java Development Environment:

1. Install java: Following command should be run through any terminal window.
sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jdk

2. Set JAVA_HOME
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/

3. Installing subvsersion:
sudo apt-get install subversion

4. Installing maven:
sudo apt-get install maven2

5. Using tomcat:
Download latest tomcat from "http://tomcat.apache.org/download-60.cgi" => tar.gz version should be downloaded.
Extract it at ome place in your folders.
set TOMCAT_HOME variable.

6. mysql install:
sudo apt-get install mysql-server

7. Download "helios" version of eclipse from "http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/"
Further we can use, m2eclipse plugin for importing maven projects "http://m2eclipse.sonatype.org/sites/m2e"
-----
Also we can use subclipse plugin for subversion, "http://subclipse.tigris.org/update_1.6.x"
But for some reason this plugin doesn't work properly so we have to disable it.
disabling subversion support:

8. Installing rabbitvcs: This is graphical tool for version control system (Its same as tortoise on windows).
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rabbitvcs/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rabbitvcs-core
sudo apt-get install rabbitvcs-nautilus rabbitvcs-thunar rabbitvcs-gedit rabbitvcs-cli
