IBM WebSphere Application Server Support and
Documentation for SAS® 9.2 m3

IBM WebSphere Application Server Software Version Requirements

SAS 9.2 supports both WebSphere Application Server and the WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment.

      • WebSphere is packaged with its own JDK, which cannot be switched for another JDK.
      • To contact an IBM representative or to place an order for WebSphere, see the IBM Application Infrastructure page. You can reach a representative by calling the toll-free telephone number under "We're here to help" in the right pane.
      • You must review and follow the instructions in the section below "WebSphere Application Server Fix Packs" to obtain and apply the required fix pack from IBM.
      • Before you run the SAS® Deployment Wizard to install SAS software and configure IBM WebSphere, review the IBM WebSphere Application Server Documentation below.
      • To configure web authentication with WebSphere 7, you must use WebSphere or later.

      IBM WebSphere Application Server Fix Packs

      SAS 9.2 supports IBM WebSphere Application Server with a designated WebSphere Application Server Fix Pack applied. The separate fix pack must be installed to bring it to the supported level.

      IBM WebSphere Application Server Configuration Documentation
