A bunch of courses that I worked on earlier this year are now available to the public, so I thought I'd provide links to those, plus some links to other courses that I worked on, which are available in various formats: self-paced, virtual classroom, or classroom.
ZA615 IBM WebSphere Application Server V7 Scalability and High Availability
In this self-paced virtual classroom course, students learn about scalability and high availability features and how they can be implemented in a WebSphere Application Server V7 Network Deployment cell.
Through recorded lectures and Adobe Flash demonstrations, students explore several highly available and scalable topologies, and evaluate their advantages and disadvantages. The course covers several components and features of WebSphere Application Server V7 Network Deployment that enable high availability and scaling, such as load balancers, caching proxies, the HTTP plug-in, the High Availability Manager (HA Manager), the service integration bus, and flexible management. Students also learn about advanced technologies and products, such as cloud computing and WebSphere eXtreme Scale, as solutions to scalability and high availability challenges in WebSphere environments.
ZA570 IBM WebSphere Application Server V7 Administration on Linux (Self-paced)
This 5-day instructor-led course teaches students the skills needed to install and administer IBM WebSphere Application Server V7. As the latest release of WebSphere Application Server, Version 7 offers users enhanced support for standards, emerging technology, and a choice of development frameworks.
In this course, students learn how to install, configure, and maintain IBM WebSphere Application Server V7 base and Network Deployment (ND), and to deploy enterprise Java applications in a single machine or clustered configuration. In addition, students learn how to work with features new to WebSphere Application Server V7, such as flexible management, business-level applications, administrative console extensions, security enhancements, and the centralized installation manager. Optional units cover topics such as centralized installation and auditing.
Throughout the course, hands-on exercises and
demonstrations reinforce lecture content. Students gain practical
experience with WebSphere Application Server V7 by performing tasks such
as installing and assembling applications, using properties file-based
configuration, applying problem determination techniques, and working
with fine-grained administrative security.
ZA715 IBM WebSphere Application Server V7 Performance Tuning (Self-paced)
In this course, students learn about performance tuning methods and best practices that apply to both the application server environment and the Java EE application. These methods and tools for load testing, monitoring, and tuning can be applied to various WebSphere components such as the application server's Java Virtual Machine (JVM), connection pools, and general runtime environment.
lab exercises provided throughout the course give students practical
experience using tools to generate user loads on an application and
monitor key performance metrics such as response time and throughput.
Students also learn how to gather information from WebSphere's built-in
performance advisors and how to use this information to tune, test, and
monitor sample Java EE applications.
