Who should use OpenCms 9 RC?
We recommended OpenCms integrators, developers and contributors to install and thoroughly test this release candidate, in order to prepare for the upcoming OpenCms 9 final . OpenCms 9.0 RC should not be used for production websites.

Please report issues found in OpenCms 9 RC using our GitHub issue tracker.

Users looking for a production installation of OpenCms should use the 8.5.2 version and upgrade to OpenCms 9 final when it is available.

Backward compatibility
OpenCms 9 is fully backward compatible with all 8.x versions. Templates and other OpenCms developed code from these versions should work "out of the box" with version 9.

Notice for users of Alkacon OCEE: OpenCms 9 requires an new version of Alkacon OCEE that will be available with OpenCms 9 final.

Compatibility with Java versions, servlet containers and databases
OpenCms 9 has been written and tested for Java 6 and 7. We have tested with ORACLEs JDK as well as OpenJDK. OpenCms should run with all compliant JVMs.

We have tested this release on the Tomcat servlet engine. OpenCms works "out of the box" with Tomcat 7, which we recommend. Others have reported deploying OpenCms successfully on other servlet containers like JBoss, BEA, Websphere, Glassfish and Resin Professional.

On the database side, we have tested with MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, MS SQL Server, DB2 and HSQLDB.
