Openbravo Sistem Gereksinimleri - Openbravo System Requirements 

Client: hardware

To use web interface of Openbravo 3 any modern office system would work. Since Openbravo is a web application it can be used on any device that is capable of running current web browser (see browser´s system requirements for a bare minimum). As with most web based applications, a faster CPU and more RAM makes the GUI snappier and more pleasant to use. Larger displays also make users more productive using wide grids, forms and multiple tabs. To give an example: a computer with an i3 processor with 4GB RAM and display with a 1680x1050 resolution is a comfortable setup for the Openbravo 3 web client.

Client: web browsers

It is strongly recommended to use at least the recommended versions of the mentioned browsers to ensure a better user experience as Openbravo 3 does benefit greatly from the improved performance in those versions.

  • Mobile OSs are not supported for backoffice operations, so there might be some features not fully supported on them.
  • This supported/recommended list apply to the latest minor version of the stated releases.
  • Mozilla Firefox has Extended Support Releases (ESR for short). The list below will always refer to this releases. Alternatively, the latest non-ESR release is also recommended
  • For WebPOS and mobile applications login will not be allowed for releases older than the minimum recommended in the previous release.


In the 23Q3 release, the list of supported/recommended browsers is:

Web browser Minimum required Recommended version WebPOS and mobile applications Backoffice 
Google Chrome113115 or higherYesYes
Apple Safari1416 or higherYesYes
Mozilla Firefox ESR102115 or higherNoYes
Microsoft Edge (Chromium based)113115 or higherNoYes


In the 23Q2 release, the list of supported/recommended browsers is:

Web browser Minimum required Recommended version WebPOS and mobile applications Backoffice 
Google Chrome111113 or higherYesYes
Apple Safari1416 or higherYesYes
Mozilla Firefox ESR91102 or higherNoYes
Microsoft Edge (Chromium based)111113 or higherNoYes

Starting from PR22Q1:

  • Internet Explorer is not longer supported as it reached end of support from the manufacturer.

Starting from PR19Q3:

  • Since Internet Explorer 11 reached end of support from the manufacturer on January 2020, there is no recommended version of this browser.

Starting from PR15Q2:

  • The minimum recommended version is the current browser major version available once the release is launched in "QA Approved" status.
  • The minimum supported version is the previous browser major version once the release is launched in "QA Approved" status. This policy is the same followed by other web applications.

Client: network connectivity

Here there are example configurations, depending on the number of concurrent users to be supported. These assume the server is hosted with a fast connection so it's network is not a limiting factor.

Downstream bandwidthConcurrent users
  As every usage scenario is different and there's no standard the real bandwidth usage in practice may differ from those given above.

Server: Java based = multiplatform

Openbravo runs wherever the Java JDK works. This currently means:

  • Operating systems: Windows, any Linux distribution, FreeBSD, Mac OSX, Solaris and more.
  • Architectures: x86, x86_64, IA64, Sparc, PowerPC, AIX.

PostgreSQL should also be supported by your target system

Server: software stack

  If a new major version is not listed here it means it is not yet tested and it's not officially supported.

Server: hardware sizing

Please follow Sizing article for the hardware recommendations based on the number of concurrent users to be supported.

Virtualization: notes

In the case of a virtualized solution (VMware, VirtualBox, Xen, etc), the Host system on which the virtual machine is running should have at least 3GB of RAM for 32bit instances and 4GB for 64bits, to ensure that in addition to the virtual machine the host system is not continuously swapping to ensure a smooth operation.
