Red Hat JBoss BRMS Supported Configurations

Every Red Hat JBoss BRMS® release is tested and certified on a variety of market-leading operating systems, Java™ Virtual Machines (JVMs), and database combinations. Because we're not able to test every possible combination, this page also describes what we consider fully supported and compatible configurations. Red Hat® supports both certified and compatible configurations.

Compatible Configurations

Compatible configurations include any operating system supported by the appropriate JBoss Enterprise Application Platform that's also running one of the JVM version families from the table below, as well as any database specifically listed below.

Red Hat will provide both production and development support for these compatible configurations (according to your corresponding subscription agreement) as long as your support issue is within the context of applications running on or with Red Hat JBoss BRMS. Red Hat relies on the testing and certification process of the underlying JVM for platform compatibility.

Certified Configurations

Certified configurations are a defined set of validated, tested, and recommended operating systems, chip architectures, JVMs, and database combinations. For these configurations, Red Hat has directly, or through certified partners, exercised a 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 Red Hat JBoss BRMS release. This list of certified configurations will expand over time.
