First time start of Polarion 1.5 - Java Vendor

Postby guest » Thu Jun 16, 2005 8:24 am


we have the 64Bit Version of Linux running. When we try to start Polarion it is aborting because the Java Vendor is not Sun, but the Version itself is the correct one. Is there a way to avoid the check for the Java Vendor?

Dear Guest,

Polarion was tested to run on JVM version 1.4.2 from Sun Microsystems Inc. The Java version/vendor is checked on startup to prevent potential compatibility problems.

If you have serious reason to use another JVM implementation, you can bypass this compatibility check by launching Polarion with parameter:


(you can add this to the end of your script). Please be advised, that by using another JVM, you can come across problems which are not reproduced on Sun JVM and which might get just limited support.

There is not a 1.4.2 Sun version for x86_64 servers. This was not available until V5. The blackdown version works on x86_64 servers. How do you bypass this requirement during installation, and when do you plan on upgrading to a recent version of Java (since 1.4.2 is no longer even supported by Sun)?
