Support alternative server name to defaultServer using Liberty docker images
At present, the server name for IBM provided containers are 'defaultServer'. When using Liberty containers with WebSphere Automation, this 'defaultServer' name is reported. We would like to override this 'defaultServer' name to set it to a value t...
