WebSphere Application Server V8.5 Administration and Configuration Guide for Liberty Profile

An IBM Redbooks publication

Note: A new draft version of this publication is now available


WebSphere® Application Server V8.5 includes a Liberty profile, which is a highly composable, dynamic application server profile. It is designed for two specific use cases: Developers with a smaller production runtime, and production environments.

For a developer, it focuses on the tasks a developer does most frequently and makes it possible for the developer to complete those tasks as quickly and as simply as possible. For production environments, it provides a dynamic, small footprint runtime to be able to maximize system resources.

This IBM® Redbooks® publication targets administrators of Liberty profile environments. It provides the information needed to create, configure, and manage Liberty profile servers. It includes information on managing multiple servers in an installation, including the use of the new administrative capabilities introduced in WebSphere Application Server V8.5.5.
