Providing Technology Training and Mentoring For Modern Technology Adoption
The WebSphere training courses that we offer are continually adjusted to account for new features of the products. This is especially true for the WebSphere administration training courses for WebSphere Application Server 8.0. WebSphere 8.0 provides the "Installation Manager", which is a completely new way to install WebSphere software. Although the default way this tool runs is with a GUI console, our administration training courses show students how to do this in “silent installation” mode since this will be much easier to automate the WebSphere installation which is required for larger WebSphere environments. WebSphere 8.0 also provides a new logging framework, HPEL, or High Performance Extensible Logging, which our courses cover so students will know how to enable, configure, and effectively use this new logging framework. The courses also provide best practices and other practical information gained by our courseware developers' hands-on experience with WebSphere Application Server.
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.
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 (WA2031 - Windows, WA2020 - Linux). 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.
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.
