  1. JIRA is a pure Java application and should run on any platform, provided all the JDK requirements are satisfied.
  2. JIRA ships with a built-in HSQL database, which is fine for evaluation purposes but is somewhat susceptible to data loss during system crashes. For production environments we recommend that you configure JIRA to use an external database.
  3. Minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768 (when these browsers are maximised).
  4. Firefox version 3.6.0 possesses a bug that could result in data loss when used with JIRA. If you use this version of Firefox, please either upgrade your version of Firefox to 3.6.2 or refer to our Firefox 3.6.0 caveats document for more details about this issue and how to avoid it.
