Supported Platform Configurations
TopBraid Platform Requirements
Current releases of TopBraid products run only on platforms that commercially support Eclipse Equinox version 4.3 Kepler, and compliant servlet containers (such as Tomcat) as fully tested production releases. OS platform support is dependent on the Target Environments supported by Eclipse, see details at http://www.eclipse.org/projects/project-plan.php?projectid=eclipse#target_environments.
The following tables show currently supported operating systems, data stores, and other platform information for each of the TopBraid products.
* Please contact TopQuadrant at firstname.lastname@example.org for information concerning other configurations meeting the general requirements.
TopBraid Composer Standard Edition and TopBraid Composer Maestro Edition run as stand-alone applications. Composer is an enterprise-class Eclipse-based IDE with comprehensive support for developing ontologies and building Semantic Web applications.
The following JVMs and operating systems are supported for versions that satisfy TopBraid Platform Requirements.
|TB Composer Version||Java||Operating Systems|
|TBC 5.4+||Java 8 SE||Operating Systems for Java 8 SE|
|TBC 5.1–5.3||Oracle Java 8||Operating Systems for OJ8|

TopBraid Server Products: EDG, EVN, Live
Currently supported server platforms include the following. We recommend the use of 64 bit Linux-based systems and Java. For configurations requiring use of https we recommend the use of mod_proxy_ajp to embed Tomcat inside an Apache Web Server.
|TopBraid Version||Java||Servlet Container||Operating Systems|
|EDG/EVN/Live 5.4+||Java 8 SE||Apache Tomcat 8||Linux kernel 2.6 or higher, Additional OS for Java 8 SE: Server JRE, OpenJDK|
