WebSphere Application Server - Supported Prerequisites


This page describes the minimum product levels you need installed before opening a problem report with the WebSphere Application Server support team. Because other products frequently ship fixes, updates, and new releases, it is not possible to test every configuration. In general, you can install and run with updates to supported products if those updates are forward compatible.
