The following table summarizes supported application containers and their required versions:
|Apache Tomcat||8.5, 9|

The web application container must be able to write to its own home directory, where AM stores configuration files.
Java Agents and Web Agents require the WebSocket protocol to communicate with AM.
Ensure that the container where AM runs, the web server/container where the agents run, and your network infrastructure all support the WebSocket protocol.
Refer to your network infrastructure and web server/container documentation for more information about WebSocket support.
Directory Server Requirements
This section lists supported directory servers.
As described in Generic LDAPv3 Configuration Properties, you can configure AM to use LDAPv3-compliant directory servers as user data stores. If you have a special request to deploy AM with a user data store not mentioned in the following table, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
