System Requirements

The operation of Abacus Solution Suite products necessitates various requirements for the operating (server) and accessing (client) systems.

The versions of the individual system components listed in the table below were tested in detail. Please find the system requirements for Abacus360 and ABACUS/RiVa here.
If it is planned to use other versions, we recommend verifying compatibility and consulting with BearingPoint. The listed system requirements reflect the respective current development status of the software and may change.

Please find system requirements for previous releases here.

* Oracle is supported for ABACUS/DaVinci P5.15.3.00 (Engine P1.10.1.00) and versions above. There are actually no Oracle Proactive Bundle Patches recommended for the new Oracle 12.2 version. For Abacus360 Banking and other Abacus products the new Oracle version 12.2 has not yet been tested and is not yet supported.

Operating systems
Server   Client

The system is completely Java-based (except the database component) and therefore independent from the operating system. The operating systems listed below have been successfully tested up to now:

  • Windows Server
  • Sun Solaris
  • Linux REDHAT
  • Linux SUSE
Basically Abacus can be operated with all clients where Mozilla or Internet Explorer, Acrobat-Reader Plug-in and Java script are enabled.

Explanation of the components

The client represents the interface between the user and the Abacus system. It receives the input of the user, shows the results and provides results in the way of files.

Web Server
The Web Server represents the business logic of the system. It receives the input of the Client, works on that and sends back the results. Furthermore it controls the system-processes which are necessary for the processing.

Abacus Server
The Abacus Server runs the processes which are necessary for implementing the business logic of the system. It is controlled by the Web-Server and through batch processes.

Database Server
The Database Server is needed for storing the necessary data for running the system as well as the results from the processing.

Open Source Software

Abacus uses some functions on open source components or presumes the use of open source software. An overview of these open source components can be found in the online client area.
