If you encounter any problems, call BEA customer support for assistance in upgrading to the current version. Mention that you are an existing RFTagAware customer who is upgrading to WebLogic RFID Edge Server; doing so will help ensure that your request for assistance is routed to the correct people within customer support.
A Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is required for WebLogic RFID Edge Server to run. For your convenience, the WebLogic installation program includes a JVM; for details, see Installing WebLogic RFID Edge Server.
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 in the documentation for your operating system before using a third-party JVM.
