SAS® 9.2 (TS2M3) Support for Java Development Kits

Support for Java Development Kits

The Java Development Kits (JDK) versions listed below meet vendor requirements for the baseline versions of supported web application servers. In some cases, an updated version of a web application server might require a later version of the JDK than the version listed below. Please consult vendor documentation to be sure that the version of the JDK you choose meets the vendor's minimum requirements.

    z/OS

    • Java 5 31-bit SDK Download via IBM   Notes: The 31-bit SDK is required. Install SDK for z/OS, V1.5.

    Additional Notes:

    It is not necessary to download a JDK for IBM WebSphere Application Server. IBM WebSphere Application Server comes embedded with a specific version of the IBM JDK that is automatically installed and used by WebSphere.

    For z/OS, there is no separate Java Runtime Environment, and therefore a JDK must be used with the SAS® Foundation. For SAS® Java clients and other platforms supported by the SAS Foundation, use the JRE recommendations.

    Oracle requires specific versions of the JDK for WebLogic when configured on AIX. For this reason, the baseline and higher support policy does not apply to JDK used with WebLogic on AIX. You must download one of the required versions of the JDK.

    On 32-bit operating systems, a 32-bit JDK is required. On 64-bit operating systems, a 64-bit JDK is required unless the JDK vendor or application server vendor does not support a 64-bit JDK. Currently those exceptions include BEA WebLogic 9.2 on HP/UX on Itanium (HP-UX 11.23, 11.31), BEA WebLogic 9.2 on Solaris 10 x64 (x86-64) and IBM WebSphere 6.1 on Solaris 9 on SPARC.
