Nuxeo DM can run on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux distributions.
Nuxeo DM is available in several packages. Here are the packages you can use for each Operating System:
- zip package (.zip extension): can be used to run on all OS.
- MS Windows setup (.exe extension): for Windows only.
- Debian package (.deb extension): for Linux only.
Nuxeo DM is fully based on Java. This means that Nuxeo can easily be deployed on any platform with a Java Development Kit (JDK).
It is required to use either Java 1.5 (also called Java 5) or Java 1.6 (also called Java 6). Java 6 is the preferred version, support for Java 5 is likely to be dropped in a future release...
We recommend Sun's Java and don't support other Java.
We've also had success running Nuxeo DM on the OpenJDK 6 (the default version of Java installed on most Linux distributions). We don't consider the OpenJDK as a supported platform yet, but we welcome your feedback if you encounter any trouble with it.
Don't hesitate to contact us if you need us to support a JRE from another vendor, such as JRockit from Oracle or the IBM JRE.
It won't work with any previous release of Java (e.g. Java 1.4).
Check your Java version
For Windows users
For Linux users
On a modern Linux distribution, you can now install Java 6 with the packaging system of your distribution (using rpm, apt, yum, etc.).
If a JRE or SDK from Sun is not available for your OS, you can still download it from Sun using the same instructions as for Windows users.
For Mac OS users
An appropriate version of Java should already be installed on your computer if you are using Snow Leopard (Java 6).
export JAVA_HOME=/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Home" after having checked it's actually there.
