64-bit Support in Web Server 7
By srinik on May 18, 2006
Web Server 7 installer provides an option to install the 64-bit binaries, if the installer detects a 64-bit system. The Web Server 7 64-bit binaries are bundled with 32-bit binaries and both are installed if the 64-bit option is selected during installation. All the 64-bit binaries are placed in the location install_root/lib/architecture directory. For example /sun/webserver70/lib/sparcv9. After the installation by default Web Server runs in the 32-bit mode if the 64-bit runtime option is not selected. The following shows how to enable the 64-bit support after the installation is done using the CLI.
Enabling 64-bit Support
1. Set the Configuration Property:
wadm set-config-prop --user=admin --host=localhost --port=8888
2. Deploy the configuration:
wadm deploy-config --user=admin --host=localhost --port=8888 HOSTNAME
Minimum Supported Version of J2SE
If the user has a J2SE in his machine, installer provides an option to reuse the J2SE in his machine. The J2SE minimum supported version is 1.5.0_06 or above as it is 1.5.0_01 or above for 32-bit Web Server.
