WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment - Edge Components

Product Documentation


Abstract

The table below provides the system requirements for IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment -Edge Components in different levels and organization of detail.

This document describes the minimum product levels that need to be installed before opening a problem report with the WebSphere Application Server Support team. Because other products frequently ship fixes, updates, and new releases, testing every configuration is not possible. In general, you can install and run with updates to supported products if those updates are forward compatible.

Content

For V8R5, always up-to-date system requirement reports can be dynamically generated using the Software Product Compatibility Reports (SPCR) tool.

For V9R0, the information is maintained in this alternate location:  https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/node/617633

For your convenience, the sections below offer detailed system requirement reports for V8R5 Edge Components.  Note that clicking a link will always generate a new, up-to-date report that is specific to the Edge component named in the link despite the "Product" field being listed as "WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment".
