IBM Installation Manager - Resolve "The installation package 'IBM WebSphere SDK Java Technology Edition (Optional)' requires components supplied by other packages"

Let's say the following is being returned when attempting to install standalone Java using the imcl (Installation Manager command line tool) command line tool. In this example, the imcl command is located at /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl but you may have the imcl command located at some other directory.

Notice in this example that -installationDirectory /opt/WebSphere/AppServer/java_1.8_64 was used.

~]$ /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl install com.ibm.websphere.IBMJAVA.v80_8.0.5006.20171219_1611 -repositories /path/to/repository.config -installationDirectory /opt/WebSphere/AppServer/java_1.8_64 -acceptLicense

ERROR: The installation package 'IBM WebSphere SDK Java Technology Edition (Optional)' requires components supplied by other packages.
The required components might be supplied by the following installation packages:
Package: WebSphere Application Server Version 8.5.5.9+ 
Package: Application Client for IBM WebSphere Application Server Version 8.5.5.9+ 
Package: DMZ Secure Proxy Server for IBM WebSphere Application Server Version 8.5.5.9+

 

This error can occur when the -installationDirectory is incorrect. The listInstalledPackages option with the -long flag can be used to list the base directory where packages are installed. In this example, one or more packages are installed in the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer directory.

~]# /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl listInstalledPackages -long
/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer com.ibm.websphere.BASE.v90_9.0.6.20171205_1311

 

In this example, the above command would simply need to be updated to have -installationDirectory /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer.

]$ /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl install com.ibm.websphere.IBMJAVA.v80_8.0.5006.20171219_1611 -repositories /path/to/repository.config -installationDirectory /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/ -acceptLicense

Installed com.ibm.websphere.IBMJAVA.v80_8.0.5006.20171219_1611 to the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer directory.

 

Be aware that if the ${WAS_INSTALL_ROOT}/java directory exists, installing stand alone Java will create a directory such as ${WAS_INSTALL_ROOT}/java_1.8_64.
