  • Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, or Solaris with at least 8 GB RAM
  • JDK 1.8 or later
  • JBoss EAP 7 or later version
  • Line numbering/color coding text editor of your choice
  • Related lab files that Accelebrate will provide
  • Upon request, a complete class environment, running CentOS, Ubuntu, or OpenSUSE, can be provided as a VMware or VirtualBox VM
  • For classes delivered online, all participants need either dual monitors or a separate device logged into the online session so that they can do their work on one screen and watch the instructor on the other. A separate computer connected to a projector or large screen TV would be another way for students to see the instructor’s screen simultaneously with working on their own.
