Dear Arun,

Thanks very much for the information,

I already downloaded the latest version, and it works normally now.

Here are some points I found while running the windows installer and .zip

Note: I am working on *Windows* and *Mac* OSs, and I test on
both environments.

   1. *Windows*: The screen wizards of the windows installer version still
   the same referring to Glassfish 3 and JEE6. it will be reported on JIRA.
   2. *Windows*: The windows installer stuck on 41% for about one hour and
   more. provided a screen shoot.
   3. *Win&Mac*:The problem of *JSF2+Ajax missing* that appeared before on
   app server console is now solved.

*Enhancement (Win&Mac)*: I have JDK6(Default) and JDK7 installed on the
same machine, and when I have unzipped the glassfish_4_b69 and run it for
the first time it reports the following exception

"asadmin> start-domain domain1
Waiting for domain1 to start .............Error starting domain domain1.
The server exited prematurely with exit code 1.
Before it died, it produced the following output:
Caused by: A MultiException has 2 exceptions. They are:
1. java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError:
org/glassfish/jdbc/config/JdbcResourceInjector : Unsupported major.minor
version 51.0"

After investigation, It should run on JDK7 not 6, but the error
is misleading somehow, it should be there some sort of detection for the
exact version of proper supported JDK, and then reports a proper error
message, something like"*Unsupported JDK version, use JDK7+ version.*"

any way the solution is to set the following script line inside the

*set AS_JAVA=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_06*

I think it will report it too.
