Product documentation


Abstract

This document contains system requirements for WebSphere MQ V6 on Solaris SPARC platform.

Content

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

Operating Systems
  • Sun Solaris V8
  • Sun Solaris V9
  • Sun Solaris V10
Hardware Requirements
  • Sun Solaris operating environment: 64-bit Sun SPARC systems only, capable of running the required level of a compatible operating system with enough storage to meet the combined requirements of the programming prerequisites, WebSphere MQ, the access methods and the application programs.
Java™ and JMS Client
  • 32-bit
    • IBM 32-bit SDK for Solaris, Java 2 Technology Edition V1.4.2 (supplied with WebSphere MQ)
    • Sun Solaris Java SDK V1.4 with JDK V1.4.2. For SSL support using Java, Sun Java 2 SDK Standard Edition V1.4.2 is required because it provides the necessary JSSE class files.
    • Sun Solaris Java 2 Standard Edition, for the Sun Solaris operating environment, SDK V1.3.1. [SSL requires JDK V1.4.2 or above]
    • IBM 32-bit SDK for Solaris, Java 2 Technology Edition V5.0 (SR1 or above) [Only if the JDK is supplied with another IBM product]
    • Sun Solaris Java SDK V5 with JDK V5
    • IBM 32-bit SDK for Solaris, Java 2 Technology Edition V6.0 (SR3 or above) [see note 19]
  • 64-bit
    • Sun Java 2 SDK, Standard Edition V1.4.2.
    • IBM 64-bit SDK for Solaris, Java 2 Technology Edition, Version 1.4.2.
    • IBM 64-bit SDK for Solaris, Java 2 Technology Edition V5.0 (SR1 or above) [Only if the JDK is supplied with another IBM product]
    • Sun Java 2 SDK, Standard Edition V5
    • IBM 64-bit SDK for Solaris, Java 2 Technology Edition V6.0 (SR3 or above) [see note 19]
Databases Where IBM WebSphere MQ is acting as the transaction manager.
  • IBM DB2 Universal Database V8.2 [see note 9]

  • Oracle 10g Release 1
  • Oracle 10g Release 2
  • Oracle 11g Release 1 [see notes 20 and 21]
  • Sybase ASE V12.5.3 ESD#1 and Sybase SDK V12.5.1 ESD#7
Compilers

Connectivity
  • SNAP-IX V7.0 (SNA)
  • TCP/IP (IPv4 and IPv6 provided by the operating system)
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 V5.1
  • IBM TXSeries V6.1 and V6.2 [see notes 15 and 16]
  • WebSphere Application Server V5.0 and V5.1
  • WebSphere Application Server V6.0.1 or higher [see notes 2 and 3]

Cryptography Cards Refer to the Cryptography Card List for WebSphere MQ v6 and v7 document for further information.

Notes:

  1. For Oracle 9i, Release 2 with Patch Set 4 (V9.2.0.5) patch 3501955 is required.
  2. WebSphere Application Server V6.0.2 is required on Solaris 10.
  3. Where higher levels of WebSphere Application Server V6 are suggested, this only includes V6.x levels and does not include other product versions.
  4. Sun platform with 64-bit hardware, 32-bit and 64-bit WebSphere MQ APIs are supported and the OS must have a 64-bit kernel.
  5. 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. You 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.
  6. The 'MQ Explorer' is not supported on this platform.
  7. Only DB2 and Oracle are supported for JDBC and XA usage.
  8. Solaris Zones support information.
  9. Only 64-bit DB2 instances can be used with 64-bit WebSphere MQ.
  10. WebSphere MQ 6.0.2.0 or later is required.
  11. For details of the Support Statement for JCA (on WebSphere MQ V6.0.2.1 or later only) please see here.
  12. WebSphere MQ 6.0.2.2 or later is required.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. WebSphere MQ V6.0.2.1 or later is required.
  16. The resiliency feature of TXSeries V6.1/V6.2 is not supported with WMQ v6. For more details, please refer to
    A Resiliency feature of TXSeries V6.1/V6.2 doesn't work with WMQ as RM.
  17. WMQ 6.0.2.4 or later is required.
  18. 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.
  19. WMQ 6.0.2.5 or later is required.
  20. WMQ 6.0.2.6 or later is required.
  21. JDBC XA not supported.
  22. WMQ 6.0.2.8 or later is required.
