Supported Configurations for WebLogic Platform 7.0
WebLogic Server/WebLogic Workshop 7.0 SP3 is available, on limited platforms, to WebLogic Server and WebLogic Workshop support customers only. A separate WebLogic JRockit 7.0 SP3 release is also available to customers using WebLogic Server 7.0 SP3. These 7.0 SP3 releases do not support Platform 7.0 customers who have WebLogic Integration, WebLogic Portal, or full WebLogic Platform installations.
BEA supports WebLogic Platform software on the configurations supported in this document. The supported configurations include multiple combinations of hardware, operating systems, SDKs, database systems, Web servers, and browsers that can be used with WebLogic Platform software. We are working to increase the number of configurations we support, and will update this information as new supported configurations are added.
Please contact your sales representative for information about configurations not listed on this Web page. Note that even using a supported configuration does not guarantee that you will never encounter operating system and JVM issues while running your application. We suggest that customers regularly check their operating system and JVM vendor Web sites for information and patches recommended by those vendors.
BEA products are certified for particular hardware chip architectures, as specified in List of Supported Operating System Configurations. In some cases, a single chip architecture is provided by multiple vendors. BEA supports such implementations when they are certified for compliance by their respective owners. For example:
WebLogic Platform supports BladeFrame architectures on any configuration of operating system, hardware chip architecture, and SDK that is listed in Summary of Supported Operating System Configurations, by Release Number.
BEA attempts to support binary and source-level compatibility between WebLogic Server 7.0 and WebLogic Server 6.1 in the areas of persistent data, generated classes, API and Protocol compatibility. For more detailed information, see Compatibility Statement for BEA WebLogic Server 7.0.
WebLogic Platform supports Development Platforms for the design, development, and verification of applications; they are not supported for production server deployments. Development Platforms are identified in the detailed Supported Configurations page for each platform.
A Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is required for both WebLogic Server and WebLogic Platform to run. For your convenience, in most cases the WebLogic installation program includes a JVM for creation of WebLogic domain configurations and use of WebLogic software. For details, see the installation guide for WebLogic Platform.
If the JVM used in your configuration is not the BEA JRockit JVM, but a JVM provided by a third party, BEA cannot directly resolve potential issues traced to the third-party JVM. Support for a third-party JVM must be provided by the JVM vendor.
The version of any third-party JVM bundled by BEA is recommended by the JVM vendor at the time BEA releases its product. Because the versions of JVMs supported by vendors change over time, please consult with your JVM vendor and confirm the latest configurations at
http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E13196_01/platform/suppconfigs/configs70/70_over/overview.html to understand the latest JVM support information before using a third-party JVM.
