Application

Purpose

Version

Download Links

Oracle Java SE Development Kit (JDK)*

  • To launch the product as each product is a Java application.

1.6.24 or later / 1.7.*

  • If you are using JDK 1.6, you might need to replace the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) policy files in your JDK with the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy files. This will avoid "illegal key size" errors when you try to invoke a secured web service.
  • If you want to build the product from the source distribution, you must use JDK 1.6 instead of JDK 1.7.
  • Oracle and IBM JRE 1.7 are also supported when running (not building) WSO2 products.
  • We do not recommend OpenJDK.

    Apache ActiveMQ
    JMS Provider

    • To enable the product's JMS transport and try out JMS samples. The ActiveMQ client libraries must be installed in the product's classpath before you can enable the JMS transport.

    5.5.0 or later

    If you use any other JMS provider (e.g. Apache Qpid), install any necessary libraries and/or components.

    http://activemq.apache.org

    Apache Ant

    1.7.0 or later

    http://ant.apache.org
    SVN Client

     


    Apache Maven

    • To build the product from the source distribution (both JDK and Apache Maven are required). If you are installing by downloading and extracting the binary distribution instead of building from the source code, you do not need to install Maven.

    Web Browser

    • To access each product's Management Console. The Web Browser must be JavaScript enabled to take full advantage of the Management console.
