HI Nelson,

Theoretically Confluence can run on any platform that can run a JDK and apache tomcat. I have not heard of any success case of confluence running on IBM power environment thought, but if you can install those prerequisites there, it should work.

Note that even if it does work,  it's not supported if not listed on this page.



Nor is the IBM JDK supported. Might be ok as an experiment, but, it would be an administration headache for a production environment - if something didn't work you would need to replicate it on a supported platform.

For development, really we're using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS to run Confluence and have no problem at all.  As Rodrigo says you won't have any problem as Confluence runs on Java VM (Oracle's official one!)


Hi there, i just win the battle!

Just replace the postgres driver for the correct one (9.3) and replace jre for the new (ppc64).

The jar can be found in :
