FAST ESP 5.3 Installation trick

The installation is not that cumbersome, but the trick here is to install the right prerequisites especially java JDK(Java SE Development Kit with JavaFX (JDK 6u13 / FX 1.1)), you can find it at http://java.sun.com

If you do not have the right version of JDK, your installation will fail on Windows ( never done it in other OS), unfortunately you can’t really find it in documentation, so you can spend sometime struggling with it.

One of the great features of the FAST installer is that once installation is done, FAST generates installation profile XML document that can be reused in the future to perform that same type of installation scenario, this is especially useful in multi-node scenarios.
