As per the link :
https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Deployment/CLMSystemRequirements#B_Client_Requirements
It is mentioned that "WebSphere Application Server Base v8.5.5 x86-64 and future fixpacks" is supported for CLM v 5.0 and is bundled with CLM 5.0.
What does the Bundle mean?
When it says, CLM and WAS are bundled together what does that mean? Do they really need to be installed differently?Or installing CLM 5.0 is enough and WAS would be installed along with?

Hi Shalini,

In the section https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Deployment/CLMSystemRequirements#Application_Server_Notes
we describe what will happen if you are an IBM Rational Passport Advantage customer (fully paid). 
"Bundling: WAS 8.5.5 and DB2 10.5 bundles are only available on Passport Advantage and in the CLM Media (not on Jazz.net). Customers upgrading from CLM 4.0.x are entitled to continue using WAS 8.0.x and 8.5 as long as CLM supports those versions."

With Passport Advantage you can download an even larger file than just the Jazz binaries, but at least per operating system.  In terms of what you need to do, the installation is still the same, product per product.  There is no rolling up of the documentation I am afraid.

Please let me know if I have cleared up this issue or not.
Cheers,

Paul
