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

  • ~ 2 GB minimum
  • ~ 512 MB heap size. This is generally sufficient to process typical SOAP messages, but the requirements vary with larger message sizes and the number of messages processed concurrently.

Disk

  • ~ 1 GB minimum (excluding space allocated for log files and databases.)

Environment compatibility

Operating Systems / Databases

  • All WSO2 Carbon-based products are Java applications that can be run on any platform that is Oracle JDK 1.6.*/1.7.* or OpenJDK compliant. JDK 1.8 is not supported yet
Also, we do not recommend or support OpenJDK.    
  • It is not recommended to run WSO2 BAM on Windows since Hadoop is not optimized for Windows.

  • All WSO2 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 Compatibility of WSO2 Products
  • If you have difficulty in setting up any WSO2 product in a specific platform or database, please contact us.

Required applications

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

Version

Download Links

Oracle Java SE Development Kit (JDK)*

1.6.*/1.7.*

Info
  • 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.
  • 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 supported when running (not building) WSO2 products.
  • We do not recommend OpenJDK.

    Info

    If you are using JDK7 on Mac OS, follow the steps below to install the Snappy-java library: 

    1. Download the Snappy JAR file from here, and extract it to a preferred location. We will refer this extracted folder as <SNAPPY_HOME>.
    2. In <SNAPPY_HOME>/org/xerial/snappy/native/Mac/ folder, you find the Snappy java library files (.jnilib files) as i386 (32bit) and x86_64 (64bit). Copy the appropriate one to <BAM_HOME>.

    For more information on installing snappy-java library, see Snappy-java fails on Mac OS JDK 1.7.

    Apache Ant

    To compile and run the product samples.

    1.7.0 or later

    http://ant.apache.org
    Apache CassandraTo store data published to WSO2 BAM, which will be used for analyzing. It is used as an event store.Cassandra is internally bundled with WSO2 BAM. However, if you're using Cassandra externally with WSO2 BAM 2.5.0, it is recommended to use version 1.2.18 or higher.http://cassandra.apache.org/
    SVN Client

    To check out the code to build the product from the source distribution.

    Info

    If you are installing by downloading and extracting the binary distribution instead of building from the source code, you do not need to install SVN.

     

    Apache Maven

    To build the product from the source distribution (both JDK and Apache Maven are required).

    Info

    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.

    Please note that the BAM dashboard doesn't work as expected on Internet Explorer 9 in Windows 7 (64 Bit).
