Operating Systems / Databases

  • All WSO2 Carbon-based products are Java applications that can be run on any platform that is Oracle JDK 7/8 compliant. Also, we do not recommend OpenJDK as we do not support it or test our products with it. 
  • 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 Compatibility of WSO2 Products.
  • If you have difficulty in setting up any WSO2 product in a specific platform or database, please contact us.

Oracle Java SE Development Kit (JDK)*

  • JDK 7 or 8.

    Note
    titleImportant!

    Some updates of JDK 1.8 (for example, JDK1.8.0_151) are affected by a known issue related to GZIP decoding. Until this issue is fixed, we recommend one of the following approaches:

    • Use either JDK1.8.0_144 or JDK1.8.0_077 updates. We have verified that these versions are not affected by the known issue.
    • Alternatively, you can disable GZIP decoding for your product by following the steps given below. This will ensure that your product is not affected by the known issue.
      1. Open the catalina-server.xml file from the <AS_HOME>/repository/conf/tomcat/ directory.
      2. Set the compression parameter (under each of the connector configurations) to false as shown below:

        Code Block
        compression="off"
      3. Restart the server.
  • Oracle and IBM JRE 1.7 are also supported when running (not building) WSO2 products.
  • We do not recommend OpenJDK as we do not support it or test our products with it.

Apache ActiveMQ
JMS Provider

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

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

Git


Apache Ant
  • To compile and run the product samples.

1.7.0 or later

http://ant.apache.org/

Apache Maven
