Key: (tick) = Supported  (warning) = Deprecated   (error) = Not Supported




Oracle JRE / JDK

(tick) 1.8
(error) 1.7

Crucible requires the Java Runtime (JDK or JRE), version as noted. Pre-release/Early access versions of Java are not supported.

We highly recommend that you use the Oracle JVM (or OpenJDK for Linux only). Other Java implementations have not been tested.

You can download an Oracle Java Runtime.

For the OpenJDK, download and install instructions for Linux flavours are at

Please note:

  • Once you have installed the Java, you need to set the JAVA_HOME environment variable. See Installing Crucible on Windows or Installing Crucible on Linux and Mac for details.
  • If you are using a 64-bit JVM, please ensure that you've set your max heap size (--Xmx) to a reasonable value, considering the RAM requirements of your system.

(error) Support for Java 7 was removed in Crucible 3.9, as previously announced.

OpenJDK(tick) 1.8 (Linux only)
Operating Systems



Microsoft Windows


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

Although Crucible can be run in virtualised environments, Atlassian is not yet able to provide technical support for performance-related problems in a virtualised environment. If you do chose to run Crucible in a VM, please ensure that you choose a VM with good IO throughput.



Apple Mac OS X






(tick) Bundled; for evaluation use only

The Crucible built-in database, running HSQLDB, is somewhat susceptible to data loss during system crashes. We recommend that you do not use HSQLDB for production systems.

External databases are generally more resistant to data loss during a system crash and are more suited for production use.

See the  Crucible Database documentation  for further details.
