Supported Platform Notes


1. Crucible requires Java Runtime (JDK or JRE) version 1.5 or later (Solaris requires 1.5.0_15 as a minimum).

You can download a Java Runtime for Windows/Linux/Solaris. On Mac OS X, the JDK is bundled with the operating system.
(info) Once you have installed the JDK, you need to set the JAVA_HOME environment variable.
(warning) We strongly recommend the use of a 32-bit JDK/JRE rather than a 64-bit JDK/JRE. 64-bit JDK/JREs will consume the available RAM more rapidly, and this may result in poor performance.


2. Crucible is a pure Java application and should run on any platform provided the requirements for the JRE or JDK are satisfied.


3. The Crucible built-in database, running HSQLDB is somewhat susceptible to data loss during system crashes. External databases are generally more resistant to data loss during a system crash.

At this time, Crucible supports the following external databases:

Deployment Notes for Source Code Repositories

Crucible also supports the use of Confluence (v2.9.1 through v2.10.4, via an SCM plugin) or the server file system (via an SCM plugin) as a repository.

Crucible can also store uploaded files in its own database, removing the need for any kind of repository. Subversion, CVS, Perforce, Git and IBM ClearCase are supported when Crucible is used with FishEye. See the FishEye Supported Platforms.

Font size tips

Icon

(Especially for Linux users.) For best results you may want to tweak your default monospace font and font-size. The default browser font is usually Courier New which can be hard to read in some browsers. We recommend choosing the same font you use in your IDE and selecting a font size approximately 2 points larger than your variable width font. Firefox 3, Internet Explorer 7 and Safari all have excellent font rendering. It is worth taking some time to tweak your fonts for the best experience.
