Java

You need a Java Development Kit (JDK) or a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on your system to run Magnolia and the Tomcat application server that ships with the bundle. JRE is an implementation of the Java Virtual Machine which executes Java programs. JDK is a bundle of software that you can use to develop Java based applications. If you plan to write your own Java code get the JDK. If you just want to run Magnolia then JRE is sufficient.

Magnolia releases run on the active Java version at the time of the first release.

Java and JDK refers here to Oracle Java releases. Please see also Oracle's page Oracle Java SE Support Roadmap.

While OpenJDK/IcedTea in general works, it is known to fail to produce correct results in certain corner cases.

On Mac OS X we recommend that you use Java SE 7 update 65+ or Java SE 8 update 20+. Earlier Java SE versions have an issue that manifests during activation and can bring the Java virtual machine down with a segmentation fault. This issue occurs in environments where certain versions of OS X, Java and Tomcat application server are present. See Problematic environments

Application servers

  • Tomcat. Please check Apache's Apache Tomcat - Which Version Do I Want? page to find out about compatibility between Tomcat and Java versions.

  • Releases of JBoss AS to version 7.1.1.Final are archived and with no support.
  • Oracle WebLogic and IBM WebSphere are supported only with the special Magnolia package for Oracle WebLogic and IBM WebSphere.
