WebSphere Application Server: Step by Step

Book description:

WebSphere Application Server (WAS) is complex and multifaceted middleware used by huge enterprises as well as small businesses. In WebSphere Application Server: Step by Step, the authors do an excellent job of covering the many aspects of the software. While other books merely cover installation and configuration, this book goes beyond that to cover the critical verification and management process to ensure a successful installation and implementation. It also addresses all of the different packages—from Express to Network—so that no matter what size your company is, you will be able to successfully implement WAS V6.

To demonstrate the steps involved in setting up a complete WAS installation, this book walks you through the configuration process for a highly available, workload-managed (HA/WLM), clustered environment built using the WAS V6 Network Deployment package. During the course of this book, you will learn how to assume all of the responsibilities and roles required to implement this architecture, including setup of a standalone application server, IBM HTTP Server and the plug-in module, the Network Deployment package, node federation, the HTTP Server distributed plug-in, clustering, HTTP session persistence, the Service Integration Bus and messaging engine, and Edge Server – Load Balancer.

Following the Step-by-Step methodology, you'll discover how to build each piece of the HA/WLM architecture one at a time, adding each component in a logical way to successfully configure the system. In the second half of the book, you'll explore additional topics that are critical to the ongoing successful implementation of an application server. The authors use their broad, in-depth knowledge to discuss dynamic caching, security, Web service enablement, the Application Server Tool (AST) Kit, WebSphere Rapid Deployment (WRD), and more. WebSphere administrators and J2EE architects alike will find this book invaluable as they install and implement IBM's WAS V6.

  • Learn how to install, configure, verify, and manage the various components of WebSphere Application Server
  • Discover the differences between—and how to implement—the Express, Base, and Network deployment packages
  • Explore advance concepts such as security, deployment issues, and management of the WebSphere Application Server environment
