Below are the iDashboards System Requirements.
- Operating System - Microsoft Windows 2003 or higher, or any version of UNIX or Linux for which a Java Virtual Machine is available.
- Microsoft Excel: Excel files as a data source can only be used within a Microsoft Windows operating system.
- Application Server - Any J2EE-compliant application server that supports at least
the Servlet 3.0 API and the JSP (Java Server Pages) 2.2 API. Any J2EE application
server released since 2003 should suffice.
- Tomcat (Supported) – Version 7.0 (or above)
Tomcat JDK Java Not Supported 6.0 1.5 5 Supported 7.0 1.6 6 Supported 7.0 1.7 7 Supported 8.0 1.7 7 Supported 8.5 1.7 - 1.8 7 & 8 Supported 9.0 1.7 - 1.8 7 & 8
Java 8 and above no longer supports the use of any ODBC connections. While iDashboards can still function, this will not allow iDashboards to use Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Access direct connections any more. Excel files need to be uploaded to the iDashobards Workbook before they can be used. Access can still be used with JDBC drivers that are available.
Other ODBC connects can be written to SQL database or the source would need some form of JDBC drive.
Note: Java 9 and 10 are currently not supported.
WebSphere 8.0 or newer
WebLogic 12c Release 1 or newer
JBoss 7.1.0 Final or newer
- Java - A Java Development Kit (JDK) depending on the requirements of the application server must be installed on the server. A JDK includes a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) to run the application server, and a Java compiler to compile JSP pages
- Version 1.5 (Java 5) – Not Supported
- Version 1.6 (Java 6) – Supported
- Version 1.7 (Java 7) – Supported and Recommended
- Version 1.8 (Java 8 or later) – Partially Supported due to lack of Microsoft Excel and Access JDBC/ODBC bridge
- Database Server - Supported repository databases include: SQL Server (2005 or later), Oracle (9i or later) and MySQL (5.0.3 or later). All other repository databases for which JDBC drivers are available can likely be used.
- JDBC Drivers - JDBC (Java Database Connectivity) drivers for the target database, and any database used as the Data Source for a dashboard. JDBC drivers are usually bundled with a database, or they can be downloaded for free from the vendor’s website.
