Requirements for running XPlanner-Plus

  1. First of all you need to have proper Java, we are supporting Sun Jdk 5, 6 and OpenJDK 6. (May work on Iced Tea, but haven't tried). We have one problem not on sun jdk, you can't use graphical progress bar, by default you have html bar.
  2. Database: Mysql, hsqldb. Other database are not tested, however we are using hibernate, so can support any database (theoritically).
  3. Servers: tomcat 6.0 and 5.5, jetty. Others are not tested.
