JBoss Enterprise Web Server 1 Supported Configurations

Updated 2013-08-16T18:36:14+00:00

Every JBoss® Enterprise Web Server (JBoss EWS) release is tested and certified on the specific set of operating systems listed below. Additionally, Java™ Virtual Machine (JVM) testing and certification occurs for the included Apache Tomcat components.

Because we aren't able to test every possible JVM combination, this page describes what we consider fully supported configurations. Each supported configuration applies to the latest JBoss EWS version. Red Hat® supports both certified and compatible configurations.

Certified Configurations

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

For these configurations, Red Hat has directly, or through certified partners, exercised our 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 JBoss EWS release. This list of certified configurations will expand over time. If you're a customer or partner interested in the status of specific combinations, please contact your Red Hat account manager. Fully supported, tested, and certified configurations are listed in the table below.

Compatible Configurations

Compatible configurations include any configuration using the operating systems listed below in both physical and virtual environments. Additionally, for Apache Tomcat, only configurations using one of the listed JVM version families is supported. Compatible configurations are fully supported as long as these JVMs are being used in conjunction with the specific list of certified operating systems.

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 JBoss EWS. Fully supported, compatible configurations are listed below.
