Nuxeo DM can run on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows operating systems.
All you need for a quick start is a Sun Java Development Kit (JDK)(a JRE is not enough). As of Nuxeo EP 5.4 and the applications based on it such as Nuxeo DM 5.4 or Nuxeo DAM 1.2, Java 6 (also called Java 1.6) is required.
We currently support Sun's JDK, don't hesitate to contact us if you need us to support a JDK from another vendor.

Type "java -version" and press "Enter".
