The following shared libraries are provided:

Issues When Using the Azul Virtual Machine
The Azul Virtual Machine supports only Type 4 JDBC drivers.
To enable native I/O, specify the following flag on the java command line when starting WebLogic Server:
The default number of open file descriptors allocated for the JDK may be insufficient for the Azul Virtual Machine.
In most circumstances the number of open file descriptors allocated, in the proxy machine, for the SDK should be at least three times the number of file descriptors allocated for BEA JRockit. If you are going to run file-intensive operations, be sure to allocate seven to eight times the existing value for the number of open file descriptors in the proxy machine. If no value has been set, set the value to 8192.
To change the specified number of open file descriptors, enter the ulimit -n command. For example, if the number of file descriptors allocated for BEA JRockit is 1024, raise that number to 8192 by entering the following command:
ulimit -n 8192
Note: Keep in mind that the BEA WebLogic jDriver has been deprecated in WebLogic Platform 8.1. BEA does not support the use of the WebLogic jDriver with WebLogic Server 8.1 SP5 with the Azul Virtual Machine.
