RTC 5.0.2 and WAS Compatibility

Andre Dunham (131) | asked Sep 05 '17, 2:21 p.m.

Silly question.

I'm currently running RTC 5.0.2.  I migrated from Tomcat over to WAS  RTC 5.0.2 is an older version and I was wondering if it was compatible with WAS  I tried to download the version of WAS that was compatible with RTC 5.0.2 but was forced to download the latest version of WAS which is  I hope this makes sense.

Everything is running on Windows 2008R2

The system requirements for 5.0.2 indicate that the maximum supported version of WAS is 8.5.5 and future fixpacks (see:

Similarly, from the system requirements for RTC 6.0.4 the maximum supported version of WebSphere is still only 8.5.5 and future fixpacks (see:

While it may work, if you do install into WAS 9.0.0 you would need to reproduce any errors you find in a supported version before you open any PMRs with IBM so I would recommend against doing so.

Incidentally; if you have any plans to upgrade to 6.0.x there is a direct upgrade from Tomcat to WebSphere Liberty Profile as part of the process, neatly bypassing the need to install a full WAS AS environment.
