WebSphere Application Server V8.5.5 Sample Installation Jobs for z/OS

How To


This document contains sample jobs that can be used to install WebSphere Application Server for z/OS V8.5.5.


The attached file contains a set of sample jobs for installing IBM WebSphere Application Serve V8.5.5 on z/OS. These jobs present current best practices for product install, and will eventually be incorporated into the SBBOJCL library of WebSphere Application Server V8.5 (5655-W65).


Edit and submit this file as a batch job to place the sample jobs into a partitioned data set. See member BBO$INDX for an index.

 Note: These jobs require a minimum Installation Manager level of 1.9.0.

Updated: December 5, 2022

Jobs have been added for Java 11 installation on WebSphere Liberty.

All samples have been updated to follow current IBM recommendations:

  • Default Installation Manager location is /global/instmgr.
  • All repositories are in /global/instmgr.
  • All products are installed under /global/instmgr/products.
  • Credentials files are stored in each user's home directory.

An index and several new jobs have been added, along with a complete set of sample jobs utilizing a "portable install" layout which can be moved from one z/OS system to another while remaining serviceable with IBM Installation Manager.
