Hi. The infrastructure area of the company is going to upgrade his database cluster. Currently we are running CA PPM 15.3 + Jaspersoft 6.2.1 on a MS SQL Server 2014 (SP2) instance. The DB cluster will be upgraded to SQL Server 2016 in a while.
We are aware that the official compatibility documentacion mentions SQL Server 2014 as the only supported database engine for Jaspersoft.
Source: Release Notes (On Premise) - CA PPM - 15.3 - CA Technologies Documentation
But, as happened on other releases, this could be only a lack of certification and not necessarily a technical incompatibility.
Do you have any succesfull experience running Jaspersoft 6.2.1 on SQL Server 2016 ?
Based on the Jasper 6.2 documentation certification matrix, it looks like SQL 2016 is not mentioned, thus it is not currently certified. The certification matrix can be found here: Certification Matrix - CA Business Intelligence JasperReports® Server - 6.2.0 - CA Technologies Documentation
Thank you, Jon. Clearly is oficially not supported.
But sometimes the lack of support is only a matter of time until CA certifies newer releases.
So, we wonder if anyone could make Jaspersoft run on SQL 2016 despite this.
