PDK 6.x on Linux?

Hi,

Since Java is meant to be platform-independent I was disappointed to learn

that the PDK 5.x does not run on my Tomcat 3.x an Linux.

JCo couldn't be the barrier since there is a version Linux already.

Even SAP R/3 works on Linux.

So when I heard that the EP 6.0 is developed on Solaris (which is

another Un*x in the end) my hope is that there may be a PDK 6.x

for Linux (Solaris Sparc Notebook are not so common you know).

And for as a developement platform it should suffice and is a lot

cheaper.

Well I believe even in production it would outperform

Windows and Solaris in measures of Price/Performance but

I'm not bold enough to ask for a production release, surprise me 😉

    Hi Frank,

    EP 6.0 development is done directly on EP 6.0 portals,

    there is no lightweight development environment supported

    at this time (as far as I know).

    So, your choice of operating system won't be a barrier for

    EP 6.0 development. On the other hand, you will need a full

    EP 6.0 portal install... See the thread "How to buy a portal"

    in the SDN Suggestions Forum.
