Providing Technology Training and Mentoring For Modern Technology Adoption
This training course is meant for companies maintaining a complex WebSphere based web site. The course provides hands-on practice performing the tasks required in a production WebSphere environment. This course uses WebSphere Network Deployment Edition v6.1 in the labs. The labs use a Linux environment to install and configure WebSphere although configuration in a Windows environment would be similar.
The course covers advanced topics in the area of best practices, work load management (WLM), security, and troubleshooting. After taking this course, students will be able to design a WebSphere based system that is more secure, easier to manage and performs better. Students will also be familiar with some of the new administrative tools that are available with WebSphere v6.1.
In the labs students will gradually build a complex WebSphere environment from scratch. They will take many of the same steps normally taken in a production WebSphere environment.
The class is meant for WebSphere administrators who are currently maintaining a multi-machine environment running several applications. This course is highly recommended before starting to make any major enhancements to the current infrastructure with the intention to improve its capacity or security.
Students should also have a basic understanding of Linux/Unix as the labs are conducted in a Linux environment. The labs are done in a group so individuals who are not as familiar with Linux or Unix could still rely on others in the group for some of the Linux-specific commands.
