Prior to installing any WSO2 Carbon based product, it is necessary to have the appropriate prerequisite software installed on your system. Verify that the computer has the supported operating system and development platforms before starting the installation.

System requirements

Memory

  • ~ 1 GB
  • Heap size around 512MB is generally sufficient to process typical SOAP messages.
  • Requirements may vary with larger message sizes and on the number of messages processed concurrently.

Disk

  • ~ 1 GB, excluding space allocated for log files and Databases.
  • More space will be utilized at runtime for temporary files, server logs etc.

Environment compatibility

  • All WSO2 Carbon-based products are Java applications that can be run on any platform that is Oracle JDK 1.6.*/1.7.* compliant. JDK 1.8 is not supported yet. Also we do not recommend or support OpenJDK.
  • All WSO2 Carbon-based products are generally compatible with most common DBMSs. For more information, see Working with Databases.
  • It is not recommended to use Apache DS in a production environment due to issues with scalability. Instead, it is recommended to use an LDAP like OpenLDAP for user management.
  • For environments that WSO2 products are tested with, see Environments Tested with WSO2 Products. 
  • If you have difficulty in setting up any WSO2 product in a specific platform or database, please contact us.

The following applications are required for running the product and its samples or for building from the source code. Mandatory installs are marked with *.

Oracle Java SE Development Kit (JDK)*

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.

Apache Ant

  • To compile and run the product samples.
