You need at least 512 MB RAM (1 GB recommended)

P3 or above

Platforms: Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista

You need a Java 6.0 (JRE or JDK).

The server can be run with the embedded Derby database or with MySQL 5 (or higher). Other database systems might work as well, but have not been tested by us.

Derby is included in the JFire packages - you do not need to download it separately!

MySQL is included in most GNU+Linux distributions (simply use your software installation tool). For testing JFire, the embedded Derby is totally sufficient, but for a productive system, we recommend using MySQL.
