Using RDBMK (MS SQL Server) for AEM Forms 6.2 JEE


Level 2


We are trying to setup AEM Forms 6.2 JEE. We wish to have a Clustered Setup with

- WebSphere for Application Server

- Microsoft SQL Server for Database (for both LiveCycle and CRX)


The Supported Platforms for AEM Forms JEE documentation page here: https://helpx.adobe.com/aem-forms/6-2/AEM-forms-JEE-supported-platforms.html#DatabasesandCRXPersiste... says that Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and 2014 are both Supported.

However, if I look at the actual installation document for WebSphere Cluster (https://helpx.adobe.com/pdf/aem-forms/6-2/install-cluster-websphere.pdf), in section 5.3.2, it says that "CRX3 RDB is supported only with Oracle 12c or IBM DB2 10.5 databases"

I wanted to thus ask whether MS SQL Server (2012/2014) is supported for AEM Forms 6.2 JEE? I wanted to get clarification since I found there is discrepancy between the Supported Platforms page and the Installation PDF.

Thank you.

Hi Sagar,

MS SQL Server (2012/2014) is supported for AEM Forms 6.2 JEE. Installation document for WebSphere Cluster will be updated to reflect the same.

Is MS SQL Sever 2019 supported for AEM Forms 6.2 JEE?  Our DBA is looking to upgrade our various SQL servers.

Thank you Khushwant! So just to clarify -- MS SQL Server (2012 / 2014) is supported for AEM Forms 6.2 JEE for both LiveCycle and CRX persistence. That's good to know. Thank you! Sincerely, Sagar Sane
