It seems there is another version of websphere is available (WebSphere Liberty 18.104.22.168). It is compatible with Java 1.8 : Please check:
Thank you, Ganesh.
After Reading the link and other IBM docs, I think this is not just a higher versión of WAS, but a new and different runtime. A different application with different administration and configuration, and also "does not support all the features of traditional WAS".
So I suppose it will need special config different than the included in the mid tier deploy docs.
Has anyone used this combination of WAS and Mid-Tier?
i have the same issue, have you resolved your issue?
I'm interested to know what's the update?
