Abstract

WAS Version 8.5 included a new server model called the "Liberty Profile." The Liberty Profile provides a fast, lightweight, composable and dynamic server runtime. This Techdoc will provide several documents related to the new Liberty Profile on z/OS.

Content

 Liberty Profile z/OS Overview 

The new Liberty Profile provides a server model that is:

 Composable -- the function is very modular and flexibly decoupled, allowing you to specify just what function you need for the applications you are serving.

 Lightweight -- the Liberty Profile uses a number of approaches to optimize the loading of functions, which results in a footprint significantly less than traditional WebSphere Application Server.

 Dynamic -- many of the runtime functions may be dynamically updated by simply changing the configuration XML; applications may be added or updated by simply replacing the application file in the file system directory.

 Fast -- due to the composable design and other factors, the Liberty Profile is able to execute very quickly.

 Liberty Profile z/OS Quick Start Guide 

The following is a step-by-step "Quick Start" guide to assist with establishing early success with the Liberty Profile. The document takes the reader from some very simple initial uses of the Liberty Profile up through more sophisticated uses involving z/OS-exclusive functions such as using z/OS for digital certificate keystore/truststore, classifying work using WLM and JDBC using Type 2 and RRS:
