WAS Liberty Runtime
This basic runtime package includes all you need to get up and running with a WAS Liberty server. To keep the footprint small,
only a subset of technologies is included. If you need Web Services, JMS, or MongoDB support, also download and install the Extended
Programming Models package in addition to this install.

- From within your Eclipse IDE.
- As a standalone JAR file that you install from the command line.
