Adobe LiveCycle deployment involves many third-party software like Application Servers, Databases and Operating Systems. LiveCycle team certifies certain platform combinations for each release of LiveCycle. For example, the supported platform combinations for our latest LiveCycle ES3 SP1 offering can be looked at http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/10.0/supported_platforms.html. It provides details of third-party software along with the version details on which LiveCycle is certified and supported. Given that these third party software keep coming up with their latest offerings too, LiveCycle has a third party software patch support statement available at http://helpx.adobe.com/livecycle/kb/livecycle-third-party-software-patch.html.
Together, these two documents should help you figure out whether platform of your choice is supported by LiveCycle or not. In case, you need any clarification, contact Adobe Enterprise Support for guidance.
If you find that platform of your choice is not supported by LiveCycle, for example, you wish support for version X of a database vendor due to your project considerations while LiveCycle supports version Y, you should contact Adobe Enterprise Support who can guide you on next steps.
In addition, Adobe LiveCycle team has a process known as Customer Commit Request in which such a request can be routed to engineering for evaluation if the customer has committed to using LiveCycle by means of purchase or M&S. If engineering finds that there is feasibility to support such a platform for your identified use, it carries out testing on that platform for your use case on LiveCycle version you intend to use. If all goes well, LiveCycle team reverts back in positive and provides support to you for your specific requirement on your desired platform for that LiveCycle release.
