If you have not yet installed IBMs Installation Manager, check out our article on installing Installation Manager.

The listAvailablePackages command can be used to see what packages are available in a repository. In this example, we will check to see the packages that are available in the http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/com.ibm.websphere.BASE.v90 repository.

./imcl listAvailablePackages
-repositories http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/com.ibm.websphere.BASE.v90
-prompt or -secureStorageFile /path/to/secure_storage.txt and -masterPasswordFile /path/to/master_password.txt

 

listAvailablePackages will produce output like this.

  • 9.0.0 means version 9.0, fix pack 0. 
  • 9.0.1 means version 9.0, fix pack 1. 
  • 9.0.2 means version 9.0, fix pack 2. 
com.ibm.websphere.BASE.v90_9.0.0.20160526_1854
com.ibm.websphere.BASE.v90_9.0.1.20160906_0049
com.ibm.websphere.BASE.v90_9.0.2.20161108_1719
com.ibm.websphere.BASE.v90_9.0.3.20170217_1945
com.ibm.websphere.BASE.v90_9.0.4.20170523_1327
com.ibm.websphere.BASE.v90_9.0.5.20170918_1844
com.ibm.websphere.BASE.v90_9.0.6.20171205_1311

 

Be aware that IBM has a number of different repositories. For example, http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/com.ibm.websphere.IBMJAVA.v80 is the repository to install IBMs Java.

List the available packages. The -prompt option is used to get a prompt to provide your IBM username and password.

./imcl listAvailablePackages 
-repositories http://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/com.ibm.websphere.IBMJAVA.v80 
-prompt or -secureStorageFile /path/to/secure_storage.txt and -masterPasswordFile /path/to/master_password.txt

 

Which will produce output like this.

com.ibm.websphere.IBMJAVA.v80_8.0.2010.20160224_1829
com.ibm.websphere.IBMJAVA.v80_8.0.3000.20160720_1754
com.ibm.websphere.IBMJAVA.v80_8.0.3020.20161124_1304
com.ibm.websphere.IBMJAVA.v80_8.0.4005.20170626_0627
