This course teaches the basics of the administration and deployment of enterprise applications in the IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.0 Network Deployment environment. This course covers all of the topics required to administer a production WebSphere environment, including troubleshooting, security, databases, messaging, performance, scripting, web services, and clustering.
The labs for the course use a Linux environment. We have found that many WebSphere clients run WebSphere on Linux or some similar non-Windows environment. So learning how to administer WebSphere in this environment just makes sense. We distribute the environment for the labs as a virtual machine so you DO NOT need to install Linux natively for the training classroom and to further simplify the setup for you.
