Installables for IBM MDM 9.0.2

Recently I got a mail from one of my friend :

"I have worked on WCC6.0 and got to attend MDM85 internal training.Currently I am in the process of installing MDM server 9.0.I have to setup the development environment in my windows machine along with the work bench.
It would be great if you could share the information related to the installable.Just the name of the installables and the way to download them from ibm site for windows environment."
I thought there will be a lot of people looking for it, even I have to get it from my colleges.
Even I am new to 9.0.2 as I was working on 8.0.x for a long time.So please feel free to correct me by posting your comments.
I was able to set up an MDM workspace and ran IVT using the following softwares.
Essentially you need to have RSA 7.5.4 ,DB2 9.7 , WAS 7.0(Even WAS 6.1 also seems to work)
IBM Rational Software Architect for WebSphere V7.5.4 Multiplatform Multilingual Core Set Up (CZ6RFML)
Core Part 1 (CZ6RGML)
Core Part 2 (CZ6RIML)
Core Part 3 (CZ6RJML)
Core Part 4 (CZ6RKML)
Core Part 5 (CZ6RLML)
Core Part 6 (CZ6RNML)
Core Part 7 (CZ6RQML)

Tip from Ajay Raghavan(MDM Architect IBM):
MDM 10 only need RSA 8.x .All lower version of MDM works on RSA 7.5.x
Db2 can 9.5 or 9.7,even 9.1 also seems to work.
The RSA 7.5.4 downloaded earlier doesn't come with the integrated WAS 7.0 test server.So we have to download it separately as given below and install using Installation Manager.

 WebSphere(R) Application Server Test Environment 7.0 Part 1 (Optional) (C1M6BML)
  Part 2 (Optional) (C1M6CML)
  Part 3 (Optional) (C1M6DML)
  Part 4 (Optional) (C1M6EML)
Now Download:
1)IBM InfoSphere Master Data Management Server V9.0.2, Transaction Hub Usage Style, for WebSphere Application Server for AIX Multilingual (CZU3XML) - View details
2)IBM InfoSphere Master Data Management Server V9.0.2, Workbench for Windows Multilingual (CZU41ML) - View details
The file you downloaded is CZU3XML, untar it till you get MDM902_WAS_AIX.tar.gz which is the actual distribution file you should provide to import the code. One important thing I forgot to write was while installing RSA please install the tool support for WAS 6.1 also along with WAS 7.
This is needed because the wokbench uses WAS 6.1 server stubs to generate the webservice code for the additions/extensions etc you do.
Hope this helps somebody else in the future.
