This sample demonstrates Lift framework integration through a simple phonebook Web application deployed to Liberty.

This sample can be installed onto runtime versions and later.


  1. Install the packaged server by typing ‘java -jar LiftSample.jar’ and following the instructions.
  2. Start the LiftSample server by running the command ‘bin/server run LiftSample’ from the root of the Liberty profile installation, and confirm the application started by looking in the console output":
    CWWKZ0001I: Application PhoneBookByLift started in XX.XX seconds.
  3. In your browser, enter the URL for the application: http://localhost:9105/PhoneBookByLift (where port 9105 assumes the httpEndpoint provided in the sample server.xml has not been modified).
  4. In your browser, you should see a phone book shown up.


This sample does not include the open source dependencies. The installer will provide a list of the open source pre-requisite libraries and where they can be downloaded from. To help obtaining these libraries, the installer provides the option to download them on your behalf.
