A Red Hat training course is available for JBoss Enterprise Application Platform Common Criteria Certification

Chapter 2. Requirements for the Evaluated Configuration

2.1. Software Requirements

2.1.1. Java Virtual Machine

JBoss EAP is evaluated on the following Java Virtual Machines (JVMs). Only these JVMs are acceptable for the deployment of JBoss EAP.
  • Sun JRE 1.5.x & 1.6.x
  • BEA JRockit JRE 1.5.x & 1.6.x
  • HP-UX JRE 1.5.x & 1.6.x
  • IBM JRE 1.5.x & 1.6.x

2.1.2. Operating System

All of the JBoss EAP functionality in the evaluated configuration relies only on the correct operation of the Java virtual machine. Thus it can operate on any operating system that is supported by the respective Java virtual machine. This also means that any hardware supported by the aforementioned operating systems can be used.

2.1.3. Database Servers

JBoss EAP is evaluated with the following relational database systems. Only these database systems with the specific driver versions are acceptable for use with JBoss EAP.

Table 2.1. Allowed Database and JDBC Driver Versions

The MD5SUM command line examples given are accurate for most Linux and Unix operating systems. Mac OS X includes the equivalent command md5.
If you are using Microsoft Windows you will have to download a third party utility to perform these steps as it does not include a MD5SUM tool.
For information on how to configure each database with the JBoss EAP refer to Section 2.5.4, “Database Configuration”.
