  2.  Usage of the PackageInstaller program is PackageInstaller host:<hostname> port:<port> user:<username> pswd:<password> pckg:<package1>,<package2>,…
    The .zip extension for package names should be omitted
  3.  At this moment the java program is working with at least webMethods Integration Server v7.1.2. Specifications contained herein are potentially subject to change so use them at your own risk.
