The JSS is platform independent. It runs on Linux, Mac and Windows using a comination of cross-platform open source products:
- Apache Tomcat and Java underlie the JSS application
- MySQL stores the JSS data
Once this software is installed, most of the management for the JSS and client devices occurs inside the JSS web application itself. The only management feature running outside the JSS web application is the configuration of MySQL’s backup schedule. This is done with a JSS utility installed with the JSS software.
