For details of the third-party software and hardware combinations that are supported when running LANSA software please review the following documents. This information relates to English-language versions only.

Any software and/or hardware combination or item not referenced in the Supported Platforms documents are considered to be Uncertified.

Note: LANSA only supports versions of operating systems that are supported by the vendor.

Customers who wish to continue using unsupported third-party products after the vendors support ceases will have to reproduce any issues on a supported version of the third-party product prior to reporting the problem to LANSA support. LANSA cannot support a third-party product when the vendor no longer supports it.

For information on pre-requisite software components for the latest version of LANSA Composer, refer to the LANSA Composer guide.

Current supported versions of LANSA Composer are V7.0 and V6.1.

LANSA Composer's supported platform requirements for both client and server components are aligned with those for the LANSA version upon which the version of LANSA Composer is based.

LANSA Composer requires a minimum Java version 1.5 execution environment for most supplied activities. Some activities require Java version 1.6 or 1.7. Transformation maps require the Java version listed in the table below, according to the MapForce version with which the map is prepared.
LANSA Composer V7.0 ships and installs Oracle's OpenJDK 8 build. Refer to the Late Breaking News entry for LANSA Composer (23rd October 2018) for details.

Attention: You should not download and apply any Mapforce Release or Service Pack until it is given an official support status by LANSA. Contact your LANSA Support representative for any Mapforce version support queries.
