Installing Liberty Server in Eclipse




Before you can use Liberty Server with Eclipse, you need to have some prerequisites installed on your machine. These are:


  • A Java Development Kit (JDK) that matches the Java version required by your applications. You can download a JDK from .



  • A Liberty profile that contains the core runtime components of Liberty Server. You can download a Liberty profile from or use Maven, Gradle, or Docker to install it.



  • The WebSphere Developer Tools (WDT) that provide the plugins for Eclipse to work with Liberty Server. You can install WDT from or use the drag-and-drop method described below.



Once you have these prerequisites installed, you can follow these steps to install Liberty Server in Eclipse:

  • In the Runtime Explorer view in Eclipse, select New > Runtime Environment.



  • In the Liberty Profile dialog, set the Name to your preferred name, such as wlp-23.0.0.4.



  • Select Choose an existing installation with the Path pointing to your Liberty profile directory, such as /dev/ApplicationServers/wlp-23.0.0.4.



  • Select Use default JRE or specify the JRE your applications require.



  • Press Finish.



Create a server in the Liberty profile




A server in the Liberty profile is an instance of Liberty Server that has its own configuration, features, and applications. You can create multiple servers in the same Liberty profile for different purposes. To create a server in the Liberty profile:


  • In the Runtime Explorer view in Eclipse, right-click on the runtime environment you created and select New > Server.



  • In the New Server dialog, set the Name to your preferred name, such as defaultServer.



  • Select the features you want to enable for the server, such as webProfile-8.0 or javaee-8.0. You can also add more features later using the featureUtility command or Maven, Gradle, or Docker.



  • Press Finish.



Create a server in Eclipse




A server in Eclipse is a link between Eclipse and a locally created server in the Liberty profile. It allows Eclipse to start, stop, and manage the server, as well as deploy and debug applications to it. To create a server in Eclipse:


  • In the Servers view in Eclipse, right-click and select New > Server.



  • In the New Server dialog, select IBM > WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile and press Next.



  • Select the runtime environment and the server you created in the previous steps and press Next.



  • Select the projects you want to add to the server and press Finish.



Installing Additional Features for Liberty Server




Liberty Server is designed to be modular and flexible, allowing you to customize it with only the features you need for your applications. Features are bundles of functionality that provide support for various Java EE standards, protocols, APIs, and frameworks. For example, there are features for servlets, JSPs, JSF, JPA, JAX-RS, CDI, EJBs, JDBC, JMS, SSL, OAuth, MicroProfile, and more.


You can install additional features for Liberty Server using different methods, depending on your preference and needs. Here are some of the most common methods:


How to use featureUtility command to install features




The featureUtility command is a tool that comes with the Liberty profile and allows you to install features from online or offline repositories. You can use it to install individual features or feature packs that contain multiple features. To use featureUtility command to install features:


  • Open a command prompt and navigate to the bin directory of your Liberty profile.



  • Run the following command to list the available features: featureUtility list



  • Run the following command to install a feature or a feature pack: featureUtility installFeature featureName



  • Restart your server for the changes to take effect.



How to use Maven, Gradle, or Docker to install features




If you are using Maven, Gradle, or Docker as part of your development workflow, you can also use them to install features for Liberty Server. These tools can help you automate and simplify the process of installing features and managing dependencies. To use Maven, Gradle, or Docker to install features:


  • If you are using Maven, you can use the to install features from online or offline repositories. You can specify the features you want to install in your pom.xml file using the <features> element.



  • If you are using Gradle, you can use the to install features from online or offline repositories. You can specify the features you want to install in your build.gradle file using the features property.



  • If you are using Docker, you can use the to install features from online or offline repositories. You can specify the features you want to install in your Dockerfile using the RUN features.sh command.
