Oracle Java SE Development Kit (JDK)*

1.6.24 or later / 1.7.*

  • If you are using JDK 1.6, you might need to install Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy files to avoid "illegal key size" errors when you try to invoke a secured Web service.
  • 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.

  • If you are using JDK 1.7 on a Mac OS, install the snappy-java library using the following steps: 
    1. Download the snappy-java JAR and extract it to a preferred location. This folder will be referred to as <SNAPPY_HOME>.

    2. Copy the appropriate snappy-java library file i386.jnilib (32bit) or x86_64.jnilib (64bit), which is in the <SNAPPY_HOME>/org/xerial/snappy/native/Mac/directory, to the <SS_HOME> directory.
    For more information on installing snappy-java library, see Snappy-java fails on Mac OS JDK 1.7.
  • We do not recommend OpenJDK.
