This basic runtime package includes all you need to get up and running with a WebSphere Liberty server. To keep the footprint small
only the Java EE 8 Web Profile technologies are included as well as some production features such as monitoring and LDAP Registry.
If you need Web Services, or JMS, these can be installed through bin/installUtility.

- From within your Eclipse IDE.
