Installation Guide System Requirements
Hardware requirements are difficult to express since different web applications require different CPU power and memory to serve different numbers of concurrent users. Note that the work load can be partitioned between different computers (also called nodes) as explained in the Choosing the Right Deployment Architecture”. Partioning the load on different computer can result in having lower requirements for each system.
The following table gives you an idea of the minimum and suggested hardware requirements for a normal server load (about 20 concurrent users).
|CPU||1 Ghz x86||2 Ghz, 64 bit, dual core|
|Memory||512 Mbyte||2 Gbyte|
|Disk Space||700 Mbyte installation
200 Mbyte operation
|700 Mbyte installation
5 Gbyte operation
Operating System (OS) Requirements
Projectivity is a Java software. Java is designed to run on a variety of systems thanks to its “write once, run anywhere” technology.
For more information of the Java technology please refer to http://java.sun.com/javase/
Nevertheless Projectivity also requires PostgreSQL and Subversion. Those are very popular software which are available for a large number of operative systems. Please refer to their web sites for more information.
Projectivity supported OS are:
- Windows (2000, XP, Vista, 2003 Server, 2008 Server)
Projectivity also is reported to work on Solaris and Mac OS X. You may need to customize the administration scripts for those operative systems.
Required Third Party Software
In order for Projectivity to be installed the following software components are required:
|JBoss Application Server||4.0.3SP1
NOTE: Check How_to_deploy_on_JBoss if you want to try deploying Projectivity on different versions of JBoss.
|PostgreSQL Data Base Management System||version 8.0 and later (including 8.3.3)
NOTE: in order to use PostgresSQL 9.x you need to update the driver shipped with Projectivity. Follow this link for more information.
|Java SE||5.0 and later (including 6.0)|
You need to download Java SE and PostgreSQL from the following web sites (JBoss is bundled with the Projectivity Binary Download):
For Linux users: you may want to check the availability of certified packages (such as rpm) from your vendor rather that downloading them directly from the listed web site.
