JBoss Training: Overview of JBoss RHQ and JBoss Operations Network (JBoss ON)

This 1 day JBoss Operations Network training provides an overview of the features of JON (JBoss Operations Network), an enterprise management solution for JBoss servers and other middleware products.  This course also covers RHQ which is the upstream open-source project for JBoss Operations Network.  The course covers installation of JON/RHQ and some of the key features, like inventroy, configuration, and monitoring of managed resources.

This 1 day course is an excellent "add on" for the 4 day JBoss administration course, WA2060 JBoss AS 7 and JBoss EAP 6 Administration.  Even when using the JON/RHQ products, it is important to know how to administer and configure the JBoss servers that are being managed.  These two courses can be combined for a full week of training.
