WebSphere Liberty Profile - Silent Installation

This is a TL;DR; taken from a document that I'm writing on the use of Liberty Collectives and Node.JS runtimes.

This is the bit where I set up and install Java and WLP: -

Starting Point

-rwxr-xr-x. 1 wasadmin wasadmins 116037545 Jun  1 08:42 ibm-java-jre-8.0-3.12-x86_64-archive.bin
-rw-r--r--. 1 wasadmin wasadmins 149840706 Jun  1 08:50 wlp-base-all-17.0.0.1.jar


Create File System for WLP and Java

mkdir /opt/IBM

Create User and Group

groupadd wasadmins
useradd -g wasadmins -d /home/wasadmin wasadmin
echo "passw0rd" | passwd wasadmin --stdin
chown -R wasadmin:wasadmins /opt/IBM


Setup Silent Installation Response File for Java

vi ~/installer.properties

Append: -

Install Java

./ibm-java-jre-8.0-3.12-x86_64-archive.bin -i silent -f installer.properties 1>console.txt 2>&1
