I'm a Java developer trying to debug a production problem involving threads in a portlet on WebSphere Portal and WCM 8.5. In order to isolate the issue and not impact on other development, I need to set up a dev playground on a Windows 64-bit machine on a powerful laptop with lots of RAM.
I've downloaded and installed par numbers CIZ5PML, CIYV9ML, CIZ5QML, CIYW0ML, CIYW1ML, CIYW2ML as listed here.
No errors, all fine, but I basically end up with a single cw_profile WAS profile and nothing else. Naturally I was expecting to get an installed WCM console with a derby database backend I can start adding and registering portlets to.
I know there is new a command line tool to create WebSphere Application Server profiles because the IBM GUI profile creation tool is busted on Windows 64-bits. It works fine for regular non-Network Deployment WebSphere installations, but do I need to use it here in this case ?
I just want to get coding, what is the shortest path to get the WCM console up and running locally? Any enlightenment greatly appreciated.
