Re: Error while installing WAS 7.02012-01-03T16:08:08ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.The Development Tools for WebSphere Application Server v7 and v8 are freely available for download.
The tools are available for download through the Eclipse Marketplace. The tools are for use with Eclipse IDE v3.6.2 (Helios) which is available from Eclipse.org. After downloading and installing Eclipse, go under the Help menu and start the Eclipse Marketplace. Next, search with the keyword "WebSphere" and the Development Tools should be at the top of the results.
For detailed step-by-step instructions about obtaining and installing these development tools, consult the Information Center for WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/beta/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.websphere.w4d.nd.multiplatform.doc%2Ftopics%2FwdtV85_overview.html
If you are using Eclipse 3.7 (Indigo), then the Information Center article above also describes an 'alpha' release known as Liberty that might be something you could use.
