Note about supported JVMs: Pivotal tc Server supports Java 6 (tc Runtime 7 only), Java 7, and Java 8 for Oracle and OpenJDK JVMs, but you must select a JVM version (6, 7, or 8) that is supported by your operating system and processor architecture.

Note about OS patch levels: Follow the guidance of your operating system or JVM vendor when deciding which patch levels should be applied to your computer. In general, the latest patch update levels are recommended.

The following related Pivotal product versions are supported with tc Server:

  • Spring Insight Operations version 1.9.2. Available for download by using tcruntime-admin utility (3.2+). Also, from the Pivotal tc Server product page.

  • Pivotal GemFire HTTP Session Manager. Available for download by using tcruntime-admin utility (3.2+). Bundled with tc Server (3.1.x). Also available from the Pivotal GemFire product page, click Download.

  • Redis. Use a Redis server for session management and replication. Available for download by using tcruntime-admin utility (3.2+). Bundled with tc Server (3.1.x).

Software Requirement - Install JDK or JRE

All tc Server editions require you to download a JDK or JRE. The platform-neutral version requires a JDK or JRE, and the platform-specific versions bundle one.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. On each computer where you plan to install the tc Runtime component of tc Server, download and install a JDK or JRE.
  2. Set your JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to your installation, and update your PATH environment variable to point to the JAVA_HOME/bin directory.

Possibly Required - GNUtar

If you are installing tc Server on Solaris from a tarball, use GNUtar instead of the system tar.

For Solaris 11, use /usr/gnu/bin/tar where tc Server documentation references tar.

For Solaris 10, use /usr/sfw/bin/gtar where tc Server documentation references tar. If /usr/sfw/bin/gtar does not exist, it can be installed from the Solaris 10 installation CDs.

If you do not have the ability to install from the Solaris 10 installation CDs, a GNUtar implementation can be downloaded and installed from OpenCSW. When using this approach, use /opt/csw/bin/gtar where tc Server documentation references tar.
