Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Release Notes

Installing on Mixed Hardware Platforms

In the past, for distributed database environments (DWP with CLD Plug-in), front-end and back-end processes had to be installed on the same hardware platform due to big endian-little endian problems. That is no longer true. Front-end and back-end processes can now be installed on different hardware platforms.

For example, a front-end machine could be an X-86 platform machine, while the back-end is a SPARC platform machine.
