It is good to revisit Java J2EE after a long hiatus for me personally.
WebSphere – Liberty
Thankfully IBM avails WebSphere via its Liberty Edition.
Liberty is free and as such it is very accessible.
The current version of WebSphere Liberty is v18.104.22.168 and it is available here.
Please download it.
Extract the downloaded package.
Copy the extracted files into a neutral location where it will live and be delivered from.
