Product documentation


Abstract

This document contains system requirements for WebSphere MQ V6 HP-UX Itanium platform.

Content

The System Requirements documented on this page are for the HP-UX Itanium platform. If you require support information about HP-UX on the PA-RISC platform please refer to the HP-UX PA-RISC platform System Requirements.

Operating Systems
  • HP-UX 11i V2 (11.23) for IPF
  • HP-UX 11i V3 for IPF [see note 9]
Hardware Requirements
  • HP-UX: Itanium systems - any hardware that is explicitly compatible and fully capable of running the specified operating system, all the corresponding supporting software shown below, and any associated applications unmodified.
Java™ and JMS Client
  • 32 bit
    • HP-UX IPF Software Development Kit for the Java 2 platform. (V1.4.2 is required for SSL support using Java because it provides the necessary JSSE classfiles.)
    • HP SDK for J2SE HP-UX 11i platform, adapted by IBM for IBM Software, V1.4.2 for 32-bit Itanium (supplied with WebSphere MQ).
    • HP SDK for J2SE HP-UX 11i platform, adapted by IBM for IBM Software, V5.0 (SR1 or above) for 32-bit Itanium [Only if the JDK is supplied with another IBM product] [see note 17]
    • HP JDK V5.0 [see note 17]
    • HP JDK V6.0 [see note 16]
  • 64 bit
    • HP-UX IPF Software Development Kit for the Java 2 platform. (V1.4.2 is required for SSL support using Java because it provides the necessary JSSE classfiles.)
    • HP SDK for J2SE HP-UX 11i platform, adapted by IBM for IBM Software, V1.4.2 for 64-bit Itanium (supplied with WebSphere MQ).
    • HP SDK for J2SE HP-UX 11i platform, adapted by IBM for IBM Software, V5.0 (SR1 or above) for 64-bit Itanium [Only if the JDK is supplied with another IBM product] [see note 17]
    • HP JDK V5.0 [see note 17]
    • HP JDK V6.0 [see notes 16 and 19]
Databases Where IBM WebSphere MQ is acting as the transaction manager.
  • IBM DB2 Universal Database V8.2 [see note 6]
  • IBM DB2 V9.1 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows (JDBC/XA not supported) [see note 7]
  • IBM Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) V9.40 plus Client SDK V2.90
  • IBM Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) V10 plus Client SDK V2.90
  • Oracle 9i Release 2 Patch Set 4 (9.2.0.5)
  • Oracle 10g Release 1
  • Oracle 10g Release 2
  • Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) 12.5.3 ESD#1 and Sybase SDK 12.5.1 ESD#7
Compilers

Connectivity
  • HP SNAplus2 Version 6 (SNA).
  • TCP/IP (provided by the operating system); IPv6 feature support is available with HP's Transport Optional Upgrade Release (TOUR).
Transaction Manager Where one of these products is acting as the transaction manager and IBM WebSphere MQ is acting as a resource manager, it's recommended that you contact the transaction manager vendor in the first instance for support.
  • IBM TXSeries V6.1 & V6.2 [see notes 13 and 14]
  • IBM WebSphere Application Server, including the WebSphere Application Server client container, V6.0.2 (see this document for more information)

  • BEA Tuxedo V8.1 & V9
  • BEA WebLogic Server 8.1 + SP4 on HP-UX 11i V2 (11.23) and HP's JDK 1.4.2 [see note 15].
  • BEA WebLogic Server 9.2 [see notes 10, 11 and 15]
SOAP Support
  • HP SDK for J2SE HP-UX 11i platform, adapted by IBM for IBM Software, V1.4.2 (32-bit only, supplied with WebSphere MQ)
  • Apache Axis V1.1 (supplied with WebSphere MQ)
Cryptography Cards Refer to the Cryptography Card List for WebSphere MQ v6 and v7 document for further information.

Notes:

  1. Only DB2 and Oracle are supported for JDBC/XA usage.
  2. On platforms where WebSphere MQ provides a 64-bit product, both 32-bit and 64-bit MQ APIs are supported and the OS must be capable of running 64-bit applications.
  3. On 64-bit platforms where WebSphere MQ provides both a 32-bit and a 64-bit product, there is NO migration path from V6 32-bit Queue Managers to V6 64-bit Queue Managers. Customers are strongly advised to install WebSphere MQ 64-bit products on 64-bit platforms as there is a migration path from V5 32-bit products to V6 64-bit products.
  4. The 'MQ Explorer' is not supported on this platform.
  5. Where higher levels of WAS V6 are suggested, this only includes V6.x levels and does not include other product versions.
  6. Only 64-bit DB2 instances can be used with 64-bit WebSphere MQ.
  7. WebSphere MQ 6.0.2.0 or later is required.
  8. For details of the Support Statement for JCA (on WebSphere MQ 6.0.2.1 or later only) please see here.
  9. WebSphere MQ 6.0.2.2 or later is required; also refer to Technote 1270591.
  10. WebSphere MQ 6.0.2.3 or later is required.
  11. Ensure that the latest BEA WebLogic SupportPac (SP) is installed; specifically, the following BEA WebLogic patches must be applied; CR249009, CR211194, CR243824, CR249009. Please contact BEA technical support if you need to acquire the patches.
  12. Defect support is available for virtualization environments where they relate to releases of this platform already supported by WebSphere MQ. Unless stated elsewhere in the system requirements, WebSphere MQ has not been specifically tested in virtualization environments. WebSphere MQ Support is therefore unable to assist in issues related to configuration and setup, or issues that are directly related to the virtualization environment itself.
  13. WebSphere MQ 6.0.2.1 or later is required; you must also install MA6P: WebSphere MQ – XA libraries for use with TXSeries 6.1/6.2 on HP-UX for IPF.
  14. The resiliency feature of TXSeries V6.1/V6.2 is not supported with WMQ v6. For more details, please refer to
    XA Resiliency feature of TXSeries V6.1/V6.2 doesn't work with WMQ as RM.
  15. The use of the WebSphere MQ classes for JMS in EJBs and MDBs is fully supported. The WebSphere MQ base classes for Java are supported with restrictions - for more details see Using WebSphere MQ Java Interfaces in J2EE/JEE Environments.
  16. WebSphere MQ 6.0.2.4 or later is required.
  17. The Java Runtime Environment must be run with the following parameter set: -XX:+UseGetTimeOfDay
  18. WebSphere MQ 6.0.2.8 or later is required.
  19. Patches from HP must be applied depending on the operating system version being used:
  • HP-UX 11i V3 - patch is PHSS-37202 (see here)
  • HP-UX 11i V2 - patch is PHSS-37201 (see here)
