JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 6 Supported Configurations

Updated 2014-02-24T19:05:38+00:00

Every JBoss® Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) release is tested and supported on a variety of market-leading operating systems, Java™ Virtual Machines (JVMs), and database combinations. Red Hat provides both production and development support for supported configurations and tested integrations according to your subscription agreement in both physical and virtual environments.[1]

Supported Configurations

In order to be running in a supported configuration, EAP must be running in one of the following Technology Compatibility Kit (TCK) certified implementations and on one of the operating systems supported by that implementation. Red Hat relies on the TCK to validate platform compatibility.

OpenJDK [2] 1.6
1.7
Oracle JDK 1.6
1.7
IBM JDK 1.6

Tested Integrations

Tested Integrations are a defined set of specifically tested integrating technologies that represent the most common combinations that JBoss 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 JBoss EAP release. This list of tested integrations will 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.

[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.

[2] Red Hat limits support of OpenJDK to Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

[3] Support for the HP JDK was added with EAP version 6.1. Earlier versions of EAP 6.x have not been certified with the HP JDK.
