Abstract

These pages describe the minimum product levels you should have installed before opening a problem report with the WebSphere Application Server support team. Because other products frequently ship fixes, updates, and new releases, we cannot test every possible configuration. In general, you can install and run with 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 Application Server has grown and so have your requirements .

For additional information on support provided for WebSphere Application Server when used with OSS Frameworks, refer to support article WebSphere Application Server OSS Framework Support Statement .

  • WebSphere Application Sever V9.0.0.9 or higher
