Product > Operating environment > Development environment and production environment

I will explain the environment where Wagby can be used.

Developer to PC with Java 7/8/9 installedWagby Development KitPlease install.You can now develop applications using Wagby.In Wagby R7, Java 8 is recommended.

The created web application can be operated in the cloud environment or on-premises (on its own server).

Wagby's operating environment is as follows.

Development PC
It is a PC that develops Web applications with Wagby. The developer installs Wagby on this PC and develops it.
Production operation server
It is a server that runs the web application developed by Wagby.
User PC
It is the user PC (client machine) that browses and operates the web application. It must be connected to the production operation server via a network.
When operating on a PC, you can use the form output function using Excel or OpenOffice.(It is not indispensable)


Please prepare the following OS for PC which develops web application by Wagby.

  • Windows 10
  • Windows 8/8.1
  • Windows 7
  • Windows Vista
  • Mac OS X
  • Linux
Please use 64 bit OS.The 32-bit version is deprecated as it has a limit on the memory available to Java.

Web browser

In the Wagby development kit, software "Wagby Designer" for entering the repository (design information) is bundled.Please prepare Google Chrome for this operation.


A memory of 1.5 Gbytes or more is required when developing Wagby.Therefore, please be sure to install 2 Gbyte or more memory in the development machine.Recommendation is 4 Gbyte or more.

Execution environment (Java)

Java 7/8/9 is required to operate the Wagby development kit.Java 8 is recommended.Please match the Java version with the production operation server.

For example, the development machine is Java 8 and the production operation server is Java 7 will not work.Please adjust to the newer (in this case Java 8).


Please read the database information available on the production server.

In development, development can proceed without these databases.(You can perform development using the built-in database that is included with the Wagby development kit.)


Web applications developed by Wagby will run on the next OS.

  • Windows Server 2016 (64bit Java)
  • Windows Server 2012/2012 R2 (64bit Java)
  • Windows Server 2008/2008 R2
  • Solaris
  • Linux
CAL is required separately for Windows Server.Please contact Wagby sales partner for details.
When installing Wagby, you need to log on to the Windows OS as a user with system administrator authority.

Execution environment (Java)

Java 6/7/8/9 is necessary to operate the application developed by Wagby.Java 8 is recommended for Wagby R7.

When using Java 9, additional response is required.[More ...]


You can use Oracle 9i/10g/11g/12c, SQLServer 2005/2008/2008 R2/2012/2014/2016, DB2, DB2 AS/400, PostgreSQL 8/9, MySQL 4/5/6, DBMaster.(DB2 and DBMaster have limited partners available.Please inquire details.)

It conforms to the JDBC 4.0 standard.

Even if you use the built-in database (included in Wagby) during development, please use the database above during production operation.Production operation in the built-in database is not supported.

Web application server

Wagby comes with an open source web application server product called Tomcat.There is no need to prepare separately.

Other information

  • There is one production operation server available (installable) with one license.When using on a virtual OS, the virtual OS is one server.
  • The larger the memory capacity is, the higher the scale of the Web application that can be developed and operated can be increased.
  • The required hardware performance depends on the number of authentication connection licenses and the storage data capacity.We recommend that you prepare with a margin to some extent.
  • Backup devices have various choices such as tape drives, CD/DVD, different disk drives.Please consult with the hardware vendor for details.

Use cloud environment

You can also run applications developed with Wagby on the cloud without preparing a server.For details of the corresponding cloud environment, please contact the reseller.

The user PC (client machine) that browses and operates the Web application needs to be connected to the LAN or the Internet.

We do not specify the OS of the client environment.In addition, special software to user PC is unnecessary.

Web browser

  • Google Chrome
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 9/10/11
  • Microsoft Edge (Windows 10)
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Apple Safari

Excel or Open Office

In Wagby, the function of generating an Excel file on a Web application and downloading it with a user terminal is provided as a standard.The layout of the generated Excel can be designed by the developer.

By opening the file downloaded here using Excel (or OpenOffice) installed on each user terminal and printing on the printer, the form function is realized.

Excel installed on each user terminal can be used in any version supported by Microsoft.(You can not use Supported Excel.)OpenOffice (* 2) can also be used.

On handling Windows Vista/7/8/10 in production environment

Since Windows Vista/7/8/10 is designed as a client OS, there are restrictions on using the server.For details, please see the following page.

For this reason, we do not designate these OS as the production operation server. Even if you use it at your discretion, we are not eligible for official support of our company, so please be forewarned.
