AllWSO2 products are generally compatible with most common DBMSs and works with any version of an RDBMS as long as the correct JDBC driver version is copied to <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/components/lib directory.
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.
If you have difficulty in setting up any WSO2 product in a specific platform or database, pleasecontact us.
