Linux vs. Windows Only Availability

Most bridges are written Java and can therefore run on both Windows and Linux platforms where a Java RunTime Environment (JRE) is available. However, a significant amount bridges are written in C++ compiled only for Windows, especially when they depend on Windows only COM API, such as:

  • Erwin Data Modeler binary native file formats (Windows only COM API).
  • SAP Business Objects Universe Designer (Windows only COM API).
  • Microstrategy Intelligence Server (Windows only COM API).

The bridges running only on Windows are annotated with a Windows icon on the published supported tools list.
