Hi, to all.
Moderator, please, feel free to move this post to another forum if this one is
Yet I'm interested in WebSphere's users comments..
In a couple of months i'll be purchasing my new development machine. It's main task will be J2ee dvpmnt under WSAD 5.0, eclipse and test/deployment on
WAS 5.0 / Jboss. Database used: oracle (mainly) mysql (sometimes) on the same machine.
All runnig at the same time, on Suse linux 9.0 / 9.1
I'm favoring the decision to buy a dual opteron 242 (1.6 Ghz) workstation with 2Gigs of RAM.
Main question for Websphere linux users: is 2Gig is enough Ram to run
WSAD & WAS on linux smoothly (with the oracle db also running) ?
On my current AMD Athlon 1.7 Ghz, 768 Meg RAM, WSAD & WAS run but WSAD does not feel snappy, and WAS takes smth like 1.5 min to start.
I was also considering to purchase apple G5 dual 1.8 Ghz with 2 Gig of Ram.
but it looks like (from this forum's posts) running java is occasionally problematic on OSX, lack of Virtual PC on G5 to test on win.
Thank you for your comments.
