    There are no trial releases of WebSphere Application Server for z/OS version 7.0 or version 8.0.

    The primary location for finding WebSphere downloads is:
    http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/downloads/ws/was/

    Alternatively, to get to a WAS v7 trial download page, you can go to any of the current WAS v8 Trial edition download pages and scroll down to the bottom of the page. There will be a link there to previous versions. For instance, if you go to the WAS v8 Trial Edition web page (http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/downloads/ws/was/index.html), you will find the link to the WAS v7 trial.

    It should be noted that there were trial versions of WAS Express and WAS Base editions only for version 7.0. There was also a free release of the WAS for Developers Edition. There are no trial editions of WAS Network Deployment Edition or WAS for z/OS. For version 8.0, there is no trial edition of WAS for z/OS.

      And therefore unable to connect.
      Is the url correct (http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/V8WASEXPRESSTrial)? Or am i doing something wrong.

      Please advise. Thanks.
