Product documentation


Abstract

This document contains system requirements for the WebSphere Broker V6 products on Solaris x86-64 platform.

Content

The System Requirements documented on this page are for the Solaris x86-64 platform. If you require support information about Solaris on the SPARC platform please refer to the Solaris SPARC platform System Requirements.

The Configuration Manager and Broker requirements for Solaris x86-64 platform are documented below.


Configuration Manager Requirements:

Operating Systems
  • Solaris 10 (plus SunSolve recommended Patch Cluster level)
Hardware Requirements
  • Sun Microsystems AMD64 and EM64T processor machines
WebSphere MQ
  • IBM WebSphere MQ Solaris x86-64, V6.0.1.1
  • IBM WebSphere MQ Solaris x86-64, V7.0 [see note 14]
  • IBM WebSphere MQ Solaris x86-64, V7.0.1 [see note 14]


Broker Requirements:

Operating Systems
  • Solaris 10 (plus SunSolve recommended Patch Cluster level)
Hardware Requirements
  • Sun Microsystems AMD64 and EM64T processor machines
Databases
  • IBM DB2 UDB Enterprise Server Edition V8 Fix Pack 11 and other IBM DB2 UDB V8 Fix Pack 11 editions for production purposes
  • IBM DB2 Universal Database V9.1
  • IBM DB2 V9.5 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows [see note 14]
  • Oracle 10GR1 (see note 9)
WebSphere MQ
  • IBM WebSphere MQ Solaris x86-64, V6.0.1.1
  • IBM WebSphere MQ Solaris x86-64, V7.0 [see note 14]
  • IBM WebSphere MQ Solaris x86-64, V7.0.1 [see note 14]
Notes:
  1. Globally coordinated transaction support (‘XA’) is provided only with DB2.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Brokers can access Information Integrator databases, for user data, on WebSphere Information Integrator for Linux, UNIX, and Windows V8.2.
  5. 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.
  6. Rational Agent Controller V5.0.2.1 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 5.0.2.1.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. WebSphere Message Broker with Rules and Formatter Extension V6.0 is not supported on this platform.
  10. Only supported with Fix Pack 6.0.0.2 or higher.
  11. Automatic Client Reroute for DB2 is supported.
  12. Defect support is available for virtualisation 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 virtualisation 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 virtualisation environment itself.
  13. Solaris Zones support information.
  14. WebSphere Message Broker V6.0.0.9 or later is required.
