This document contains system requirements for the WebSphere Broker V6.0 products on HP-UX.
Configuration Manager Requirements:
- Globally coordinated transaction support (‘XA’) is provided only with DB2 and Oracle 10g Releases 1 and 2 (i.e. Oracle 11g Release 1 is excluded).
- Globally coordinated transaction support (‘XA’) with 64-bit Execution Groups is available only with DB2 and Oracle (Broker V18.104.22.168 or later).
- IBM DB2 Database Server - iSeries support:
- Brokers can access DB2 Databases, for user data, on iSeries servers running OS/400 V5R2 or V5R3. This can be done using either DB2 Connect (on UNIX and Windows) or, on Windows platforms only, iSeries Access for Windows.
- This support is subject to the following restrictions:
- The broker database may not reside on the iSeries server.
- Globally coordinated ('XA') transactions are not supported.
- Database stored procedures on the iSeries server may be called, when using DB2 Connect, but not with iSeries Access for Windows.
- Message flows containing New Era of Networks nodes may not access iSeries databases.
- IBM DB2 Database Server - zSeries support:
- Brokers can access DB2 Databases, for user data, on zSeries servers running z/OS with IBM DB2 Universal Database V7.1 (5675-DB2) at RSU0409 and PUT0402 or later or IBM DB2 Universal Database V8.1 (5625-DB2). This can be done using DB2 Connect on UNIX and Windows.
- This support is subject to the following restrictions:
- The broker database may not reside on the zSeries server.
- Large database Objects (LOBs) are supported; this support requires DB2 Universal Database for z/OS 7.1, at RSU0409 or later.
- Message flows containing New Era of Networks nodes may not access zSeries databases.
- Brokers can access Information Integrator databases, for user data, on WebSphere Information Integrator for Linux, UNIX, and Windows V8.2.
- Brokers can access Information Integrator data sources for user data on WebSphere Information Integrator Classic Federation for z/OS where the WebSphere Information Integrator Classic Federation client code is provided for the Message Broker platform.
- The specified WebSphere MQ level is the minimum level however certain functionality will require a higher level:
- JMS Real-time support requires WebSphere MQ V5.3 Fix Pack 10.
- Support for JMS MQ Optimized node requires WebSphere MQ V5.3 Fix Pack 10.
- JMS Real-time Multicast PGM support – requires WebSphere MQ V22.214.171.124
- Support for JMS MQ Optimized node requires WebSphere MQ V5.3 Fix Pack 10
- Support for 64-bit Execution Groups requires WebSphere MQ V6.0
- Support for JMS SSL requires WebSphere MQ V5.3 Fix Pack 11
- Rational Agent Controller (RAC) V126.96.36.199 or V6.0.1 is required to support Broker v6 debugging. If you are also debugging v5 brokers on a v6 system, you must use RAC 188.8.131.52. There is no RAC support on any 64-bit Broker product.
- Where patches for a product are specified, this means that these patches were required to resolve problems found during testing and should therefore be considered as the minimum necessary maintenance level. Further maintenance should be applied in accordance with the guidance of the relevant software manufacturer.
- The Message Broker supports any JMS 1.1 provider. The embedded JRE is Java 1.4.2. Both of these factors need to be considered when selecting a JMS provider whose client will be embedded in Message Broker.
- WebSphere Message Broker with Rules and Formatter Extension V6.0 is not supported on HP Integrity.
- HP Integrity is only supported with Fix Pack WMB 184.108.40.206 or later.
- Oracle Database Server requires the Oracle Runtime Client.
- If using DB2 V9.1 on HP PA-RISC, the user must set and export environment variable MQSI_SIGNAL_EXCLUSIONS=10 in the Broker environment.
- WebSphere MQ v5.3 End of Support Date is 28th September, 2007. Customers should upgrade to WebSphere MQ v6.0.
- Only the connect-time failover feature of Oracle RAC in non-XA environments is supported.
- WebSphere Message Broker V220.127.116.11 or later is required.
- Automatic Client Reroute for DB2 is supported.
- Defect support is available for virtualization environments where they relate to releases of this platform already supported by WebSphere Message Broker. Unless stated elsewhere in the system requirements, WebSphere Message Broker has not been specifically tested in virtualization environments. WebSphere Message Broker Support is therefore unable to assist in issues related to configuration and setup, or issues that are directly related to the virtualization environment itself.
- Informix support only for user databases. Large objects (LOBs) and stored procedures are not supported.
- WebSphere Message Broker V18.104.22.168 is the minimum supported product level; APAR IC57602 must also be applied.
