2.1.1. Requirements

Software requirements
On client-side Docmenta requires a JavaScript enabled Web-Browser. Officially supported are
  • Firefox 7 or higher
  • Internet Explorer 8 or higher
Docmenta may also work with older versions of Firefox and Internet Explorer, as well as other Browsers like Chrome, Safari and Opera, but these are not officially supported.
The requirements on server-side are:
  • Java Servlet/JSP container (e.g. Apache Tomcat)
  • Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 or later
This documentation describes the installation, assuming that you use Apache Tomcat. Nevertheless other Java Servlet/JSP containers (e.g. JBOSS, WebSphere, WebLogic, Oracle Server, Jetty, ...) may work as well. But only Apache Tomcat 6.0 or higher is officially supported. For other web-servers consult the documentation that is provided with your web-server distribution.
If the data shall be stored in a database system, then additionally the database system has to be installed either on the same server where the Java Servlet container is installed, or on another server. See Section, “Storage types” for additional information.
Hardware requirements
The minimum requirements for the hardware on client side are:
  • CPU: 1.5 GHz with at least 2 Cores
  • 1.5 GB of RAM
  • 100 MB free disk space
The hardware requirements on server-side depend on the amount of parallel user sessions. To avoid out of memory issues, the server should provide 1GB of RAM for the operating system and the Docmenta application plus 500MB of RAM for each user session. Furthermore, as a rough estimation, 1 Core with 1GHz should be available per user session. For example, 8 GB of RAM and 8 CPU-Cores each with 2 GHz should be sufficient for about 15 parallel user sessions.
