There are two ways to install eXtreme Scale on top of the lightweight WebSphere Liberty Profile. The free developer version can be seen on this post. However, if you have a production level environment, and need to install eXtreme Scale on top of Liberty using the Installation Manager, here's the way you would do it.
Installation Manager requires repositories to install products. Add a full WebSphere Application Server repository as well as a WebSphere eXtreme Scale repository by clicking Fil
Go back to the main menu and click Install.
For WebSphere Application Server 8.5, choose the version and product you want, for example, "IBM WebSphere Application Server".
For WAS 8.5.5, Liberty is no longer packaged in the Full Install of WAS, instead, install "IBM WebSphere Application Server Liberty". If you install this way, eXtreme Scale 188.8.131.52 is the minimum required.
For WebSphere eXtreme Scale, there are two options to install, the client or the server (which includes the client)
Pick either to install the server and client, or just the client install of eXtreme scale. Click the Next button to continue.
There will be license information and such you may click through. Then, pick an installation directory to install the products.
On the next page, the features to install will appear for both WebSphere Application Server and WebSphere eXtreme Scale.
You are not required to install the full version of WebSphere Application Server, and you may pick just to install the Liberty Profile, but you may also install both as well. Make sure also that you install eXtreme Scale features as well.
When installing WAS 8.5, you'll find the Liberty Profile as a feature (As seen in the image). When installing WAS 8.5.5, you'll find the Liberty Profile as a separate installable package.
Click Next and finish the installation.
The Liberty Profile will be installed in WAS_INSTALL/wlp, eXtreme Scale will be installed in WAS_INSTALL\wlp\wx.
You are now ready to use your installation of WebSphere Liberty Profile and eXtreme Scale. You can download the airport sample to get started.
