    Deploying JBoss on a 64-bit JVM

    Mike Neaef Newbie

      Hi,
      We are currently thinking of deploying an application on a 64-bit JVM under Linux. However, I came across the following warning "The current group of 64 bit JVMs have some stability issues. Please do extensive testing on the 64 bit JVM before using it in Production" (http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=JBossVsJavaJDKVersionMatrix).

      At the same time, on the wiki page: http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=PreparingAnEnterpriseReadyJBossInstallation, it states that:
      "It is suggested that new systems use a 64 bit platform to keep up with increasing memory and performance requirements of customer applications."

      and under recommended 64-bit platforms:

      64-bit AMD x86 on Linux (Sun JDK 5.0 required/recommended over JRockit)
      64-bit Intel/Itanium on Linux (Sun JDK 1.42 required/JRockit recommended)

      Does the above mean that I should stick to 32-bit JVM on a 64-bit Linux installation? Thanks for your time.
