Supported configurations

JBoss Enterprise Application Platform supported configurations Every JBoss® Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) release is tested and certified on a variety of market-leading operating systems, Java™ Virtual Machines (JVMs), and database combinations.

Since we aren't able to test every possible combination, this page describes what we consider to be fully supported configurations. Each supported configuration applies to the latest JBoss EAP version. Red Hat® supports both compatible and certified configurations.

Compatible configurations

Compatible Configurations include the JVM version families listed in the Compatible Configurations table below, and the corresponding Operating Systems on which those JVMs are supported. Red Hat will provide both production and development support for these compatible configurations (according to your corresponding subscription agreement) in both physical and virtual environments as long as your support issue is within the context of applications running on or with JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.

Certified configurations

Certified configurations are a defined set of specifically validated and tested operating systems, chip architectures, JVMs, and database combinations. These represent the most common combinations that JBoss Enterprise Middleware customers are using.

For these configurations, Red Hat has directly, or through certified partners, exercised our full range of platform certification tests as part of the product release process. Issues identified as part of this testing process are highlighted in release notes for each JBoss EAP release. This list of certified configurations will expand over time.

JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5
