<title>SiteMesh Requirements</title>
<p>SiteMesh is a Servlet Filter and therefore requires a container that
conforms to the <a href="">Servlet
2.3</a> specification.</p>
<p>As SiteMesh is written in pure Java, it is platform independent.</p>
<p>SiteMesh is tested and works on the following Servlet containers:</p>
<li><a href="">Orion 1.5.4 and up</a></li>
<li><a href="">Jakarta Tomcat 4.0, 4.1 and 5.0.19</a></li>
<li><a href="">Resin 2.1.11, 2.1.12, 2.1.13, 2.1.14 and 3.0.7</a></li>
<li><a href="">Oracle OC4J 2</a></li>
<li><a href="">WebLogic 7.0 SP2, 8.1 and 8.1 SP2</a></li>
<li><a href="">WebSphere 5.0</a></li>
<li><a href="">Jetty 4.2.20</a></li>
<p>The only other requirement of SiteMesh is <a
href="">JAXP</a> (with a parser
implementation). This should be supplied by your servlet container.</p>
<p>SiteMesh is compatible with JRE 1.3 and higher. For best performance,
JRE 1.4.x or higher should be used.</p>
<p>To build SiteMesh from the sources, you must have the
<a href="">Java SDK version 1.4</a> or above,
and <a href="">Jakarta Ant</a> version 1.5 or above.</p>
<h4>Service Packs and Patches</h4>
<p>SiteMesh currently does not work flawlessly on Weblogic 6.1, 7.0 and 7.0 SP1. For more
information, visit <a href=""></a>.
However, SiteMesh does work correctly on WebLogic 7.0 SP2, 8.1 and 8.1 SP2.</p>
<p>SiteMesh does not work on Weblogic 8.1 SP1 because of various bugs in the JSP
compilation engine. Apply patch <b>CR112789_81sp1</b> to your Weblogic installation.</p>
<p>SiteMesh does not work on WebSphere 5.0.1 and 5.0.2. Apply patch
<b>IBM iFix PQ80592</b> to your WebSphere installation.</p>
