PPM 9.x and Java 64 bit

Hi,

 

I am planning to move to 64 bit architecture including java 64-bit on windows OS.

Any experience in that?

Thanks

 

Regards

T.M.

Yeah, I've run a 64-bit JVM on both Windows and Linux. Nothing really comes to mind as far as anything really different.

Thanks Eric,

 

The reason I am asking this question is there was a statement in PPM9.14_SysReqs_CompatMatrix.pdf which says

"PPM requires 32-bit JDK on 64-bit operating systems".

I attached the image.

When I need a support I don't want HP to tell me that they don't support 64-bit JDK. So I don't want to be left alone.

I was kind of confused.

Re: PPM 9.x and Java 64 bit

You're right...it is confusing. On pg. 28 of the "Third Edition" guide, under "Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition (64-bit only)" it says

 

Java Platform Standard
Edition 6 Development Kit
(JDK) 1.6.0_07 (6.0 Update
7) or later (both 32- and
64-bit) (available from Sun)

 

For "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Platform 5.0, Updates 1 through 6 (64-bit only)" it specifies the 64-bit JDK as the only option ("64-bit JDK only") supported.

 

You also have to know that the "or later" doesn't mean JDK 1.7 unless you're on 9.2

 

At any rate, I've been running the 64-bit on Win 2008 R2, Linux, and Win 2003 (officially unsupported) without any issues.
