IBM WebSphere Process Server for z/OS, and IBM WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus for z/OS, Version 7.0.0, hardware and software requirements

Product documentation


Abstract

This document lists the hardware and software requirements for: IBM WebSphere Process Server for z/OS, and IBM WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus for z/OS, Version 7.0.0, on the z/OS operating system

Content

This page describes the minimum product levels that must be installed before opening a problem report with the WebSphere Process Server or WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus support team. Because other products frequently ship fixes, updates, and new releases, testing every configuration is not possible. In general, you can install and run with minor updates to supported products if those updates are forward compatible. For additional information on available support for configurations that are not included in the following list, refer to support article WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus has grown and so have your requirements. The Product Support and Technical Support for minor forward-compatible updates is covered in the section "Other Configurations".

Supporting software can run, but does not need to run, on the same computer or operating system where the product runs.
