GigaSpaces InsightEdge and XAP are implemented using Java, and require the following:
- Java version 7 or 8
- Any operating system that is supported by Java (for example Linux/Unix, Microsoft Windows, and Apple Mac OS/X)
For information on VMWare support, refer to the VMWare guidelines.
The following issues have been encountered in specific use cases:
- SUSE-10 Linux Enterprise Service Pack 3 has bugs that make the OS network layer unreliable. Do not use this operating system with GigaSpaces products.
- Java 8 and Java 7 (> u79): In these versions, the behavior of the multicast operations regarding IPv6 has changed, and this can cause long initial connection times. To mitigate this issue, add ‘-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true’ to the JVM arguments.
Java 9 is not currently supported with this version of InsightEdge and XAP due to changes in the Java platform. Java 9 is planned to be supported in a future release.
