In versions of WAS Advanced Edition prior to version 5.0 the WAS database was used to store configuration information about the application server (what applications were installed on it, what the JVM settings were, etc.). In version 5.0 (and even in version 4.0 single-server edition) this database was superceded by an XML file-based repository.
