Red Hat Data Grid 7 Supported Configurations

Updated -

Every Red Hat Data Grid (RHDG) release is tested and supported on a variety of market-leading operating systems, Java™ Virtual Machines (JVMs), and database combinations.

Supported Configurations

Red Hat provides both production and development support for supported configurations according to your subscription agreement in both physical and virtual environments. A supported configuration is one where Red Hat Data Grid runs in one of the following JVM versions on an operating system that the JVM supports and is also listed as a tested configuration. Red Hat relies on the testing and certification process of the underlying JVM for platform compatibility.1 Red Hat limits support of OpenJDK to Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Tested Configurations

Tested configurations are a defined set of validated and recommended operating systems, chip architectures, JVM, and database combinations. These represent the most common combinations that JBoss Enterprise Middleware customers are using.

Red Hat has performed the full range of platform tests on the following tested configurations.

  • DEPRECATED - Deprecated functionality will likely not be supported in future major releases of this product and is not recommended for new deployments.

  1. Red Hat expects that customers will remain on a supported environment. In the event that a JVM, operating system, database, etc., or its version is no longer supported by its vendor, Red Hat may be limited in its ability to provide support and may require you to reproduce the issue in a supported environment for continued assistance.

Hello Is there a plan / schedule for Data Grid 7.2 to be supported / tested on JDK 11? And EAP 7.2 Thanks

For this you need to move to a later release. There is no plan to certify 7.2 with JDK 11.

Thanks Which version of Data Grid should we use with EAP 7.2?

We test the latest version of one product if the other is released. So for EAP7.2 you can use 7.2.3 but also 7.3 if it is released

dependend on the use-case there might be no or no huge drawback if you use a different (newer) version

Thanks again Wolf-Dieter I see from here https://access.redhat.com/articles/3009221 that JDG 7.3 is due out at the end of the month. Will this be JDK11 compliant in tandem with EAP 7.2 ?

Given the information now on this page I assume the answer to my question is no to JDK11 but yes to EAP 7.2. Is there a plan for a JDG version to be certified with JDK11? 7.3 Update 1 is scheduled for the end of April
