Question

Why isn't DSM isn't supported on JBoss 6.x?

Hi, apologies if this is posted in an incorrect part of MESH.

My client are moving from Weblogic to Tomcat or JBoss 6.1 for their Pega 7 deployment, however they are concerned that DSM will not be available to them if they move to JBoss (they currently do not use DSM).

Why is JBoss 6.x not supported? Is it lack of available testing, or is there something fundamental in JBoss that doesn't allow it to work? Is there a timeline to make it available on JBoss 6.x in the future?

The platform support guide for Pega 7 states:

  • Decision Strategy Manager (DSM) will not run on JBoss 6.x.

Thanks.

I do not see any reasons other than priority and business needs (technically jboss 6 is a major change from jboss 5 there will be changes needed to support that). The product owner can confirm. I cannot even see a user story in pmf regarding the requirement.
