WebSphere Administration and J2EE -J2A15 (Duration 3 days)

IBM's WebSphere (WAS) continues to be one of the two application servers that dominate the J2EE application server domain. WAS 5.0 is a J2EE 1.3 compliant application server that offers robust support for all J2EE 1.3 features. In addition, it supports a scalable clustering solution combined with a rich command line and UI based administration tool.

In this course, we introduce J2EE Application Server administrators and developers to the powers and capabilities of WAS 5.0 system administration. Starting with the concept of a J2EE application (Web, EJB and Enterprise applications), we cover WAS 5.0 administration including clustering for load balancing and failover support.

The course is heavily hands on with lab exercises that illustrate how to administer stand-alone and clustered instances of WAS, performance tuning of WAS 5.0 and securing Enterprise applications deployed in WAS.
