JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform Supported Configurations

Updated 2013-08-16T17:12:37+00:00

Every JBoss® Enterprise Data Services Platform (JBoss EDSP) 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 capable of running those JVMs.

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 EDSP.

Database and data source 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 EDSP release.

JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform 5.3

Red Hat fully supports both compatible and certified configurations.

Compatible Configurations - 5.3

Red Hat relies on the testing and certification process of the JVM to determine operating system compatibility. The following JVM version families, combined with an operating system that supports that JVM, are considered fully supported compatible configurations for JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform in a virtual or real environment.
