    , does not mention the optional WAS 8.5 SDK 1.7 EXT(ension)
    associated with the WebSphere Application Server (WAS) v8.5

    f: (optional) If you downloaded WebSphere Application Server
    Test Environment software (version 8.5), which has a default JDK
    1.6, and you want JDK 1.7, then download the IBM WebSphere SDK
    Java V7.0 for WebSphere Application Server V8.5. Extract the
