Oracle Solaris Preflight Applications Checker 11.2 now available

ISV Engineering is happy to announce the release of the latest version of our Solaris Preflight Checker tool supporting Solaris 11.2. which is now available for download.
The Solaris Preflight Checker enables a developer to determine the Oracle Solaris 11.2 readiness of an application by analyzing a working application on Oracle Solaris 10. A successful check with this tool will be a strong indicator that an application will run unmodified on the latest Oracle Solaris 11.

This release includes:
  • Updated symbol database which will help migration from Solaris 10 to Solaris 11.2
  • Kernel binary and source scanners that now detects, usage of "data structures" changed between Solaris 10 and Solaris 11.2
  • An application analyzer, which looks for usage of specific Solaris features and recommends better ways of implementing the same on Solaris 11.2   e.g. suitability of high performance libraries shipped with Solaris, crypto offload for Java & C based applications,  etc.
  • And bug fixes

Solaris 11.2 Kernel Zones on SAP


As the same time as Oracle Solaris 11.2 was released on July 31st, ISV Engineering is happy to report that Oracle Solaris 11.2 has been tested and is fully supported to run SAP applications.

Applications certified for Oracle Solaris 11 do not need to be re-certified when updating to Oracle Solaris 11.2 or later updates, thanks to the Oracle Solaris Binary Compatibility Guarantee

The new Kernel Zones feature of Solaris 11.2 however has been certified for SAP applications and is recognized as a supported virtualization configuration.

You can find the details in SAP Note 2047465 - SAP Software in an Oracle Solaris 11.2 Kernel Zone.
This support is integrated with the SAP monitoring tool saposcol, as shown in the screenshot below.
The type of virtualization will be shown with the latest SAP host agent (7.20 SP188).
