SiteMesh is a Servlet Filter and therefore requires a container that conforms to the Servlet 2.3 specification.
As SiteMesh is written in pure Java, it is platform independent.
SiteMesh is tested and works on the following Servlet containers:
- Orion 1.5.4 and up
- Jakarta Tomcat 4.0, 4.1 and 5.0.19
- Resin 2.1.11, 2.1.12, 2.1.13, 2.1.14 and 3.0.7
- Oracle OC4J 2
- WebLogic 7.0 SP2, 8.1 and 8.1 SP2
- WebSphere 5.0
- Jetty 4.2.20
The only other requirement of SiteMesh is JAXP (with a parser implementation). This should be supplied by your servlet container.
SiteMesh is compatible with JRE 1.3 and higher. For best performance, JRE 1.4.x or higher should be used.
Service Packs and Patches
SiteMesh currently does not work flawlessly on Weblogic 6.1, 7.0 and 7.0 SP1. For more information, visit http://jira.opensymphony.com/secure/ViewIssue.jspa?id=10045. However, SiteMesh does work correctly on WebLogic 7.0 SP2, 8.1 and 8.1 SP2.
SiteMesh does not work on Weblogic 8.1 SP1 because of various bugs in the JSP compilation engine. Apply patch CR112789_81sp1 to your Weblogic installation.
SiteMesh does not work on WebSphere 5.0.1 and 5.0.2. Apply patch IBM iFix PQ80592 to your WebSphere installation.
