This section provides an overview of what websphere-liberty is, and why a developer might want to use it.
It should also mention any large subjects within websphere-liberty, and link out to the related topics. Since the Documentation for websphere-liberty is new, you may need to create initial versions of those related topics.
To set up WebSphere Liberty, download the latest zip from WASdev.net.
Once you have the zip, extract it to any location on your file system. The basic layout of a Liberty install is the following:
wlp/ # WLP_INSTALL_DIR bin/ # location of scripts such as 'server' dev/ # developer resources (APIs, SPIs, and tools) etc/ # global customizations (server.env or jvm.options) lib/ # platform runtime environment usr/ # user directory servers/ # servers directory server_name # directory containing all information for a given server server.xml # (required) primary server configuration file apps/ # server applications folder dropins/ # server dropin applications folder logs/ # server log files
