A few weeks ago on this blog, we announced the first Beta release of IBM Support Assistant 5.0 - the start of a new generation of troubleshooting tools using a cloud-based architecture to deliver maximum flexibility and power. This initial release was provided in the form of a set of files for a J2EE enterprise application that you could deploy in your own pre-existing WebSphere Application Server.
Today, following the announcement of the WebSphere Liberty Profile, we are proud to offer a second option for installing IBM Support Assistant 5.0: you can now download a single zip file that contains a lightweight application server, with the entire IBM Support Assistant 5.0 application pre-installed. All you have to do is unzip the file (on a shared server server or on your private workstation), start the process, and you are ready to get to work! We've provided packages for Linux, Windows 32-bits and Windows 64-bits.
Both types of installation packages can be found at the "Download" button at the bottom of the main page at http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27024922. We expect that these two alternative installation options will serve a wide variety of needs in different environments.
