Supported Configurations and System Requirements

Supported Configurations

Revised August 16, 2012.

The following table shows all supported configurations for vFabric Web Server. These include vFabric Suite supported configurations, as well as additional configurations supported by standalone vFabric Web Server.

The table indicates if the supported configuration is for production or development. Generally, Production support means you can run your production application on the platform; Developer support means you can develop on the platform but you should not run your production application on it. However, see vFabric Suite supported configurations for details.

System Requirements

TCP/IPv6 is required on all platforms. Modern platforms have this support installed already. It is not necessary to configure IPv6 adapters; simply install the IPv6 socket support drivers and associated libraries. Vendor patch sets for compatibility with the current release of vendor Java are recommended for all vFabric Web Server installations, because the operating system flaws that affect sockets and multi-threaded services for Java similarly affect vFabric Web Server and its support libraries.
