    JBoss ESB and 64bit

    Nikos Massios Novice

      Has anyone tried running ESB 4.7 or 4.6 using 64bit windows, 64bit java and jboss 5.1.0 GA?

          I'll let you know in a week, or so.  We're doing the migration from AS 4.2.3, ESB 4.5, Win32 to AS 5.1.0, ESB 4.7, Win64 right now.

              I'm sorry, Nikos.  Other tasks got in the way of this migration.  You know how it goes, right?  I do intend to provide a full report after we get the whole thing stood up.

                Hi all,

                 

                so do I understand you right that JBoss ESB 4.X (We use JBoss ESB 4.4 on JBoss AS 4.2) won`t run under JVM 64Bit (resp. Win64) ?

                 

                Best regards,

                  Hi guys,

                   

                  I'm running Mac OS X with a 64 bit processor and running 64 bit java.

                  Is this a problem with windows 64 bit java? If so could you tell me what it is...I'd just like to understand the issue here

                  Thanks,

                   

                  /Daniel

                    Hi experts,

                     

                    sorry for the stupid questions, but so far I have found no documentation about this on official JBoss ESB Sites.

                     

                    We intend to migrate OS from Windows 32 Bit to Windows 64 Bit. Of course I want to be sure, that no porblems will occur and our JBoss ESB 4.4 installation  (on JBoss AS 4.2) will run as perfect as before. Therefore two very important questions:

                    (1) When we use JRE 64Bit, will JBossESB work as before ?

                    (2) If (1) doesn`t work: Is it possible to run JBoss ESB 4.4 with JRE 32Bit (as before) under Windows 64Bit ?

                     

                     

                    Thank you very much for the answers.

                     

                    Br,

                      Dennis,

                       

                      1.)  Probably.  I think you're missing the fact that the migration should be transparent to any pure-java application.

                       

                      2.)  It is completely valid to run JBoss within a 32-bit JVM on a 64-bit Windows OS (I'm doing it now).  You must remember to install the 32-bit versions of native libraries that your application requires (Oracle client, anything supporting JNI in your codebase, etc).

                       

                      Our full 64-bit migration is approaching.  The only thing that was holding us up was tooling.  One large vendor has not provided a 64-bit compatible version of an Eclipse plugin which relies upon native code.  We eventually realized that we could run Eclipse itself in a 32-bit JVM, and invoke Junit tests from Eclipse in 64-bit JVMs, using all of the 64-bit native libraries which support our application deployment, so the lack of vendor support was moot.

                       

                      I'm not concerned.  I do not foresee any insurmountable problems with the migration, since the shipped bytecode is platform independent, but perhaps I'm being naive about a particular aspect of the migration.

                        Hi Ryan,

                         

                        thanks for fast reply.

                         

                        @Daniel: Is there also an "official" statement regarding running JBossESB 4.4 within 32Bit / 64Bit JVM on Windows 64Bit OS?
