Error description

  • The default server.xml  (templates/defaultServer/server.xml)
    in the WAS 8.5 flavor of Liberty 16.0.0.3
    (com.ibm.websphere.liberty.zOS.v85_8.5.16003.20160831_1733)
    now consists of just:
    
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <server description="new server">
    
    <!-- Enable features -->
    <featureManager>
    <!-- <feature></feature> -->
    </featureManager>
    
    </server>
    
    In the WAS 8.5 version of Liberty at the 16.0.0.2 level, it
    includes the jsp-2.2 features and an httpEndpoint stanza:
    
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <server description="new server">
    
    <!-- Enable features -->
    <featureManager>
    <feature>jsp-2.2</feature>
    </featureManager>
    
    <!-- To access this server from a remote client add a host
    attribute to the following element, e.g. host="*" -->
    <httpEndpoint id="defaultHttpEndpoint"
    httpPort="9080"
    httpsPort="9443" />
    
    <!-- Automatically expand WAR files and EAR files -->
    <applicationManager autoExpand="true"/>
    </server>
    
    We should not regress the default server.xml, especially
    since many tutorials and some customer automation depend on
    the previous content.
    
    The default server.xml in the WAS 9.0 Liberty 16.0.0.3
    continues to have a good bit more content (even more than in
    the WAS 8.5 16.0.0.2 copy).
