The minimum hardware requirements to achieve a reasonable performance are:

  • Intel Pentium IV 1.4 MHz processor or equivalent;
  • RAM memory of 1Gbytes.

A Pentium Core I3-2.13 GHz or equivalent and RAM memory of 3 Gbytes are recommended. The space in a 200-Mbyte disk is sufficient to install the programs and maintain a base without annexes (base of ± 50,000 registers). The requirements are directly proportional to the expected demand: the larger the volume of data and simultaneous access, the more requirements as regards equipment.


Biblivre requires a Windows, Linux, Unix or compatible operating system; in the case of Windows, 2000, XP, Vista, Seven or superior. BibLivre cannot be installed in Windows ME, 98SE, 98 or previous models, since these are incompatible. Biblivre can be installed in any system which allows the following programs to work properly:

  • Virtual Java Machine 1.6 or higher
  • Apache Tomcat 5.5 or higher
  • PostgreSQL 8.1 or higher

NOTE: The version 3.0 installs into the system the following programs, if not find the previously installed:

  • Java Virtual Machine 1.6
  • Apache Tomcat 6.0
  • PostgreSQL 8.4
  • Apache HTTP Server 2.2

BibLivre works simultaneously with other programs. However, many programs open at the same time can make processing slow.
