Product Support Information

The following sections provide product support information about WebLogic Platform products:


Important Support Information

The following sections provides guidance about high-level support policies:

Supported Configurations for WebLogic Platform

The supported configurations for WebLogic Platform products include multiple combinations of hardware, operating systems, JDKs, database systems, Web servers, and browsers that can be used with software. We are working to increase the number of configurations we support, and will update this information as new supported configurations are added.

Oracle supports WebLogic Platform on the configurations shown in the following documents:

Please contact your sales representative for information about configurations not listed in the documentation for your WebLogic release. 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.

Supported Hardware

This section provides information about WebLogic Platform's:

Support Policy for Compatible Hardware Architectures

Products are certified for particular hardware chip architectures, as specified in the Supported Configurations documentation for each platform (see Supported Configurations for WebLogic Platform). In some cases, a single chip architecture is provided by multiple vendors. Oracle supports such implementations when they are certified for compliance by their respective owners. For example:

Support for Intel 64-bit Xeon Hardware

Intel's 64-bit Xeon hardware is capable of running in either of two modes: with 64-bit extended addressing or as an IA32 (x86/Xeon) machine:

Support for BladeFrame Architecture

WebLogic Platform supports BladeFrame architectures on any configuration of operating system, hardware chip architecture, and SDK that is listed Supported Configurations for each platform (see Supported Configurations for WebLogic Platform).

Development Platforms

Workshop for WebLogic support 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 document for each platform.

Support Policy for Third-Party JVMs

A Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is required for WebLogic Server 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 Server.

If the JVM used in your configuration is not the JRockit JVM, but a JVM provided by a third party, Oracle 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 Oracle is recommended by the JVM vendor at the time Oracle 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.
