BEA WebLogic Server 8.1 SP6 on Windows Vista

This section provides the following information:


Support Restrictions for Windows Vista

BEA support for Windows Vista is limited to the following:

Client Only Support

Support for use of WebLogic Server remote Java clients, including RMI clients, JMS clients, IIOP clients, Web Services clients, to call services hosted on a separate WebLogic Server server instance, typically hosted on a remote machine. Client Only support does not include Web Server plug-in support. All protocols supported by current WLS remote Java clients are included. Use with and without SSL is included. Client Only support does not include the ability to run a WebLogic Server server instance to host applications/services.

Development Support

Support for use of WebLogic Server for development and unit testing of applications on a single development machine, as restricted by the SDK license. The SDK license allows up to 5 IP connections to the server since the server has been started. Support includes installing WLS, configuring/upgrading a single server domain, starting the server, using the WLS Console to administer the domain, developing/compiling/deploying applications, and unit testing of the application from the same machine, or up to 5 different machines with separate IP addresses. Support also includes the ability to perform all of the above on a small (such as a two cluster managed server) cluster that runs on a single development machine. The ability to configure clusters and deploy clustered applications is supported, but in general cluster runtime features are not included in development support. For example, cluster load balancing, state replication, and failover features are not included. Performance stress testing and Web Server plug-ins are not supported.
