Pinned topic Running 64 and 32 bit SDk in same WAS Cell?

‏2013-01-15T03:59:32Z |
Is it possible to run 64 bit and 32 bit SDK in the same WAS Cell? Looking for an option for apps to try 64 bit but not convert everything over if we don’t have to. I would like to just have one JVM run the 64 bit SDK or maybe even one node be 64 bit but the rest stay with 32. Any recommendations on how I could set this up?

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    > Is it possible to run 64 bit and 32 bit SDK in the same WAS Cell?
    Yes, it is possible.
    You can install 64 bit on one node and 32 bit on the other. They can co-exist also, so if you need you can install both on one machine also.
    However you have to perform 2 separate installations (new package groups), as it is not possible to install both versions at the same time.
    Then you just federate both nodes to the deployment manager.

    It is not recommended to create cluster across 64 and 32 bit install, as members may have different performance and settings in this case (eg. on 64 you could set 3GB heap and on 32 not).
