Note : It is one of the way to install WebSphere Application Server (WAS) Plugin v8.5.5 in comapines.

1.Download  WebSphere Application Server (WAS) Plugin version 8.5  trial package from IBM website. This software  comes with 2 disks like
                                was.repo.8550.plg.ilan_part1.zip
                                was.repo.8550.plg.ilan_part2.zip
Note:
                                Silent installation cannot install packages that are contained different disks.
                 ex:
                       here I use IHS 8.5.5.0 trail version. It comes 2 different disks like
                          was.repo.8550.plg.ilan_part1.zip
                          was.repo.8550.plg.ilan_part2.zip
                       Then we need to unzip these 2 zip files. It will be created 2 diffrent folders like
                        was.repo.8550.plg.ilan_part1
                        was.repo.8550.plg.ilan_part2
Then we merge these 2 folders into one folder like "was.repo.8550.plg.ilan".

2.Before installing  WebSphere Application Server (WAS) Plugin v8.5.5  trial package. You need to download & install Installation Manager(IM) in your box(system) from IBM website.
