- JDK/JRE 1.5+. We strongly recommend that you use Sun JDK 1.5 (Java 5) and above to run your Bamboo installation. You are likely to experience incompatibility problems running Bamboo under a different JDK and ensure that there are no other JDK's in your PATH.
Don't forget to point your JAVA_HOME system environment variable to your Sun JDK before installing Bamboo, as Bamboo will automatically configure JDK capabilities based on the system environment variables on your machine.
- A database. NOTE: Bamboo ships with a built-in HSQL database, which is fine for evaulation purposes. For production environments it is recommended that you use an enterprise database, as described in Connecting Bamboo to an external database.
- Only if you are using the Bamboo EAR-WAR distribution: A servlet container that supports Servlet 2.4 specification. Most modern containers should comply to this.
Choose your Bamboo 'Distribution':
Bamboo is available in two 'distributions':
The Standalone distribution is recommended even for organisations with an existing application server environment.
