IBM Websphere Application server.
IBM WAS is Java J2EE server for running an application.
From websphere8 onward, we need to use the imcl (installation manager command line) to install and patching the IBM WAS suites ( IHS, Plugins , WAS, java ). Below is sample command to run patching.
./imcl install <pkg id> -installationDirectory <WAS_HOME> -repositories <Path to the downloaded Binaries> -acceptLicense -sP
Pre-requisite for patching:
- Backup WAS.
- new binary download
