JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform Supported Configurations

Updated 2013-09-04T13:03:52+00:00

Every JBoss® Enterprise SOA Platform (JBoss SOA-P) release is tested and certified on a variety of market-leading operating systems, Java™ Virtual Machines (JVMs), and database combinations.

Because we're not able to test every possible combination, this page describes what we consider fully supported and compatible configurations. Red Hat® supports both certified and compatible configurations.

Compatible Configurations

Compatible configurations include the JVM version families listed in the compatible configurations table below and the corresponding operating systems on which those JVMs are supported.

Red Hat will provide both production and development support for these compatible configurations (according to your corresponding subscription agreement) in both physical and virtual environments as long as your support issue is within the context of applications running on or with JBoss SOA-P.

Compatible configurations are listed here:

Database support is limited to certified configurations.

Certified Configurations

Certified configurations are a defined set of validated, tested, and recommended operating systems, chip architectures, JVMs, and database 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 a 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 SOA-P release. This list of certified configurations will expand over time, and if you are a customer or partner interested in the status of specific combinations, please contact your Red Hat account manager.
