Install the beta product

You must first install the beta code in order to use it. Sure, this is obvious. This is feature-pack beta, so you install it over top of an existing WebSphere Application Server installation.

Important: The beta does not support uninstallation, so we recommend that you create a new WebSphere Application Server installation image to use with this beta so you can remove it when you are done with the beta.

Summary for a GUI based install
a) use an existing WAS 7 installation either Single Server or Network Deployment
b) update the WAS 7 cell using the update installer tool to the prereq'd level of code. This step is important, if your cell has not been imported into update installer you may not be able to install the feature pack.
c) install the installation manager
d) import the cell into the installation manager tool
e) in the installation manager tool take a look at file -> preferences to see the list repositories your installation manager uses to search for install packages
f) choose the install button from the installation manager tool and choose the feature pack for modern batch from the list of available packages
