    What is a WebSphere Profile?

    You can create , which are sets of files that define the runtime environment. At least one profile must exist to run the WebSphere product.

    A profile defines the runtime environment. The profile includes all of the files that the server processes in the runtime environment and that you can change.

    There are command line and GUI tools supplied with each version of WebSphere which allow you to create and delete profiles. Each release of Websphere does have different locations and names of these scripts.

    WebSphere 61.

    You can create a runtime environment either through the manageprofiles command or the Profile Management tool graphical user interface. You can use the wizard to enter most of the parameters that are described in this topic. Some parameters, however, require you to use the manageprofiles command. You must use the manageprofiles command to delete a profile, for instance because the Profile Management tool does not provide a deletion function. Use the Profile Management tool to complete tasks that the manageprofiles command does not support. For instance, the wizard creates the cell in a single step whereas the command version requires two separate invocations of the manageprofiles command.
