WAS Liberty Simple Setup for Development

Everytime I install WAS Liberty in Eclipse to develop BlueMix apps, I waste a lot of time to bring a warning-less instance of WAS in my local machine.

So, here it goes a reminder of how to do it.

#1 Download Liberty plugins at Eclipse Marketplace

#2 Download WAS Liberty from IBM

#3 Add the server instance in Eclipse

#4 Configure the instance's server.xml as follows - just remember to change the password as I put random stuff below:

<server description="new server">

   <!-- Enable features -->
   <featureManager>
      <feature>adminCenter-1.0</feature>
       <feature>localConnector-1.0</feature>
       <feature>ssl-1.0</feature>
       <feature>appSecurity-2.0</feature>
    </featureManager>

   <!-- Define the host name for use by the collective.
        If the host name needs to be changed, the server should be
        removed from the collective and re-joined. -->
   <variable name="defaultHostName" value="localhost"/>

    <!-- Define an Administrator and non-Administrator -->
   <basicRegistry id="basic">
      <user name="admin" password="{xor}WJEhdWQE"/>
      <user name="nonadmin" password="{xor}DewqdQDew"/>
   </basicRegistry>

   <!-- Assign 'admin' to Administrator -->
   <administrator-role>
      <user>admin</user>
   </administrator-role>

   <keyStore id="defaultKeyStore" password="{xor}JWhdKJWREh"/>

   <httpEndpoint host="*" httpPort="9080" httpsPort="9443" id="defaultHttpEndpoint"/>

</server>
