Removing starter stores from WebSphere Commerce Developer

If you plan to move your WebSphere Commerce Version 7.0 store to your WebSphere Commerce Version 8.0 development environment, run the reset store utility on your Version 8.0 environment. If you do not plan to migrate your version 7.0 store to version 8.0, this task is optional.

About this task

When you install WebSphere Commerce Developer, the available starter stores are published by default. The reset stores utility removes published stores and prepublished store assets from the workspace. A clean workspace makes it easier for you to migrate your store from Version 7.0 to Version 8.0.
Note: You can republish the starter stores after the migration is complete.


  1. Go to the WCDE_installdir\bin directory.
  2. Run the reset stores command:
