Using Adminclient 7.0 with websphere 6.1

Last Modified: 2013-12-10
Hi All,
I have websphere ND 6.1 RHEL 5.5 under my setup.

I have been supplied some JAVA jar files used to extract configuration details from websphere inventory using "AdminClient" API method.

But there is a caveat. These java programs only work with Websphere 7.0 Adminclient copied on Websphere 6.1 installation i.e $WAS_HOME/runtimes/com.ibm.ws.admin.client_6.1.0.jar
replaced  by $WAS_HOME/runtimes/com.ibm.ws.admin.client_7.0.0.jar

It's tested under windows platform & does work.

I can download 7.0 RHEL from ibm website but it's not a ND product for trial download. So my question is , Can I copy standalone 7.0 RHEL $WAS_HOME/runtimes/com.ibm.ws.admin.client_7.0.0.jar to my 6.1 ND setup? Will that work?

Kind Regards
