Wildfire on Itanium

Hi,

We have a server based on Intel Itanium x64 processors. We are planning to use it for Wildfire. But there are no java 1.5 distributions for itanium. Is it possible to run server on java 1.4.2. If yes, what steps should I perform?

Thanks,

Tim

You did not say what OS you were using. Assuming Linux for 64 bits you can use the Linux AMD64 Platform package. In windows xp 64 i do not know if the Windows AMD64 Platform package will work, but you can try.

Hi,

The problem is not connected to OS. I can install what I want on this machine. There is important note on the bottom of sun java 1.5 download page:

Please Note: J2SE 5 Itanium port is not available at this time. A download bundle may be available at a future date.

So, I need to force server to run on java 1.4.2. And the question is how I can do it?

You can use JRockit 5.0 R26 JDK for Microsoft Windows (Itanium - 64 bit)

This 64-bit version of JRockit is intended for use on Intel Itanium 2 systems. This version, BEA JRockit® 5.0 JVM (R26.0.0-188), is certified to be compatible with J2SE 5.0.

And it is said to be a FREE for all purposes. (http://www.jivesoftware.org/community/thread.jspa?messageID=110506&#110506)

The Intel Itanium isn’‘t compatible with AMD64 instructions. It has it’'s own instruction set. You might be confusing it with the EM64T capable Pentiums and Xeons, which do support the AMD64 instructions.

Thanks, problem is resolved using JRockit 5.0 R26 JDK.
