Home > Training > WebSphere Application Server Administration > WebSphere Application Server 8.5 Administration

With the quick release of WebSphere 8.5, only one year after 8.0, you might think there is not that much different.  This is not true as there are several new features that provide an ability to prioritize application traffic and even adjust the WebSphere environment automatically if SLA policies are not being met.  Our WebSphere training courses for WebSphere 8.5 have been improved to highlight these new features, in addition to the new features introduced in 8.0 of Installation Manager and the new HPEL logging framework. 

We have also added an advanced course on WebSphere Problem Determination since this is a common task that is performed everyday by WebSphere administrators and IBM provides lots of free self-help tools in this area that our course covers.

WA1953 Administrative Scripting with WebSphere Application Server v8.5

This 3 day class covers in depth how to perform many common WebSphere tasks using the WebSphere scripting libraries.  Rather than using the Administration Console, which is prone to human error, students will learn how to create automated and repeatable procedures modify WebSphere environments with scripting.  Students learn the Jython language in addition to the commands available in a WebSphere environment.

WA2097 WebSphere Application Server 8.5 Administration on Linux

This course teaches the basics of the administration and deployment of enterprise applications in the IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.5 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.

WA2382 Configuration and Administration of WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile 8.5.5

This course introduces developers and administrators to the WebSphere Application Server 8.5.5 Liberty Profile.  The Liberty profile is a lightweight, dynamic profile that enables the server to provide only the features that the deployed application requires.  Liberty profile also has a much faster startup time and smaller memory footprint than the "full" WebSphere Application Server which makes Liberty perfect for development and even cloud deployment scenarios.

In this course you will learn how to install and configure WebSphere Liberty Profile servers.  This includes configuration of many common application resources like database and messaging resources and troubleshooting and monitoring the Liberty server.  Also explored are some of the new 8.5.5 features that allow for setting up a cluster of WebSphere Liberty Profile servers as a "collective".

WA2212 WebSphere Application Server 8.5 Administration Fundamentals

This course teaches the fundamentals of WebSphere administration. Although this course provides a basic introduction to WebSphere administration, those looking for a full understanding of WebSphere clustering should take our "full" WebSphere administration class (WA2097 - Linux, WA2088 - Windows). This shorter class is most appropriate for those that might need just an introduction to WebSphere administration like support staff and application developers that are likely not directly involved with managing clustered WebSphere environments.

WA2224 WebSphere Application Server 8.5 Performance Tuning

This course provides in depth information on how to tune WebSphere, database server, web server and the operating system to extract the last drop of performance. It covers performance tuning methodology, how to detect a bottleneck and common problems and solutions. After taking this class, students will be able to methodically create a stress testing plan and find bottlenecks and resolve them.

The students will perform hands on lab to create test scripts, perform stress test and gather key performance numbers. The class is generic as far as the stress testing tool is concerned. The concepts learned in this class can be used with any tool of choice.
