Hi,

Can we install WebSphere Application Server (6.x/7.x/8.x) on Apple Mac Pro?

Sure, you can:
1) Install VMWare or VirtualBox or any other virtualization software
2) Install guest OS which is supported by WebSphere (e.g. RHEL, SLES, Windows XP, Windows 7, etc)
3) Configure network adapter in host only mode - so you can reach WebSphere ports (http, https) in guest OS from host OS (MacOS X)

regards,
MZ

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
