Red Hat support for Spring Boot Supported Configurations

Updated -

The page lists important details about the Spring Boot Supported Configurations for Red Hat support for Spring Boot.

Red Hat support for Spring Boot are tested and certified against a variety of popular Java™ development frameworks and technologies while running on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. Because we are not able to test every possible framework and version, this page describes what we consider to be fully certified configurations. Each certified configuration applies to the runtime and framework versions listed for individual runtime.

Red Hat support for Spring Boot components listed on the Components Details page are supported in the following manner:

  1. For identified non-critical bugs, Red Hat will work within the Spring Community to submit fixes that, if accepted, may be available in a subsequent Spring Boot component release.
  2. For identified critical bugs, Red Hat may give a fix directly to customer. Red Hat will also work within the Spring Community to submit critical fixes that, if accepted, may be available in a subsequent Spring Boot component release.
  3. If the Spring Community does not accept a proposed fix or implement an alternative fix, Red Hat will give commercially reasonable support to identify a workaround.

Other available Spring Boot versions ( Not Supported)

Spring Boot 2.2

Red Hat provides both production and development support for supported configurations according to your subscription agreement in both physical and virtual environments. In order to be running in a supported configuration, Red Hat support for Spring Boot must be running in one of the following JVM versions and on a supported release of Red Hat OpenShift/Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Red Hat relies on the testing and certification process of the underlying JVM for platform compatibility.

Java Virtual Machine Version
OpenJDK 1.8
OpenJDK 11
Eclipse OpenJ9 [1] 11

[1] Red Hat limits support of OpenJ9 to distributions from Red Hat and distributions from AdoptOpenJDK.net.

Spring Boot 2.2 Tested and Supported Configurations

Red Hat support for Spring Boot is tested with the following Red Hat OpenShift configurations, RHEL Releases.

Operating System Chipset Architecture Java Virtual Machine
OpenShift 3.11+ x86_64 OpenJDK 1.8.x or OpenJDK 11.x
OpenShift 4.1+ x86_64 OpenJDK 1.8.x or OpenJDK 11.x
OpenShift 4.3 [1] zSeries Eclipse OpenJ9 11
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.6+ x86_64 OpenJDK 1.8.x or OpenJDK 11.x
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 x86_64 OpenJDK 1.8.x or OpenJDK 11.x

[1] This combination is the only supported scenario: Spring Boot + Eclipse OpenJ9 11 running on OpenShift 4.3 over RHEL 8 for zSeries


Spring Boot 2.1

Red Hat provides both production and development support for supported configurations according to your subscription agreement in both physical and virtual environments. In order to be running in a supported configuration, Red Hat support for Spring Boot must be running in one of the following JVM versions and on a supported release of Red Hat OpenShift/Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Red Hat relies on the testing and certification process of the underlying JVM for platform compatibility.

Java Virtual Machine Version

Spring Boot 2.1 Tested and Supported Configurations

Red Hat support for Spring Boot is tested with the following Red Hat OpenShift configurations, RHEL Releases.

Operating System Java Virtual Machine
OpenShift 3.11+ OpenJDK 1.8.x or OpenJDK 11.x
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.6+ OpenJDK 1.8.x or OpenJDK 11.x
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 OpenJDK 1.8.x or OpenJDK 11.x

SpringBoot 2.1.x and 2.2.x Tested Integrations

Tested Integrations are a defined set of specifically tested integrating technologies that represent the most common combinations that Enterprise Middleware customers are using. For these integrations, Red Hat has directly, or through certified partners, exercised our full range of platform 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 support for Spring Boot release. This list of tested integrations may expand over time.

Red Hat provides both production and development support for the tested integrations in the same major version family at or above the tested version according to your subscription agreement. Earlier versions of a tested integration in the same major version family are supported on a commercially reasonable basis.

The following databases and database drivers were tested as part of the latest Red Hat Runtimes support for Spring Boot release.

Supported integrations with database drivers:

Databases JDBC Driver
Oracle 12c JDBC driver 12.2.0.1
PostgreSQL 10 JDBC driver 42.2.12
MySQL 5.7 JDBC driver 8.0.20

Supported integrations with Red Hat productized database container images on OpenShift:

Databases JDBC Driver
MySQL 5.7 JDBC driver 8.0.20
PostgreSQL 10 JDBC driver 42.2.12
