 4) Uninstalling packages by using imcl
Command: ./imcl uninstall
Uninstall packages from the tools directory by using Installation Manager command line (imcl) uninstall commands.
Before you begin
•To identify the package_id_version,feature_id, run the listAvailablePackages command.

Procedure
To uninstall a package by using imcl:
1) Navigate to the tool directory
2) Run the uninstall command: using imcl

imcl uninstall package_id_version,feature_id -installationDirectory installation_directory

NOTE : There are many options available with imcl, use that as per your requirement

3) List the Installed packages to verify the packages you want to uninstall
BE VERY CAREFUL BEFORE YOU SELECT THE PACKAGE IDs .. Bcoz there may be many Other Websphere Packages installed on different directories

[root@wasnode tools]# ./imcl listInstalledPackages
com.ibm.cic.agent_1.6.2000.20130301_2248
com.ibm.websphere.IBMJAVA.v70_7.0.4001.20130510_2103
