Select File > Preferences.


Select Add Repository and enter the URL for the version of the WebSphere Application Server you want to install.

  • Version 9.0 Application Server:
  • Version 9.0 Network Deployment Manager:

Also add the supplemental URL, which will let you include IBM HTTP Server, Web Server Plug-ins for WebSphere Application Server, the WebSphere Customization Toolbox, or the WebSphere Application Client.

  • Version 9.0:
