JBoss Enterprise Web Platform supported configurations

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

More

Since we are not 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 Enterprise Application Platform 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 Web Platform.

Certified configurations

Certified Configurations are a defined set of specifically validated and tested Operating Systems, chip architectures, JVM, 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 Web Platform release. This list of Certified Configurations will expand over time.

JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5

Red Hat fully supports both Compatible and Certified configurations.

Compatible Configurations - 5

Red Hat relies on the testing and certification process of the JVM to determine Operating System compatibility. The following JVM version families, combined with an Operating System that supports that JVM, are considered fully supported compatible configurations for JBoss Enterprise Web Platform in a virtual or real environment:

Java Virtual Machine Version
Sun JDK 1.6x
Open JDK 1.6x
IBM JDK 1.6x
Azul JDK 1.6x

Certified configurations - 5

The following operating system, chip architectures, and JVM combinations are fully supported certified configurations for JBoss EWP 5.0.

  • All x86 chip architectures have been tested with 32-bit JVMs.

  • All 64-bit architectures have been tested with 64-bit JVMs.

  • SPARC and RISC chip architectures have been tested with 32-bit JVMs.

This listing is updated from time to time as additional configurations are certified.
