Advanced WebSphere Application Server 7.0 Administration


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 v7.0 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, performance, scripting, 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 and troubleshooting tools that are available with WebSphere v7.0.


  • Administrative Best Practices (covered throughout the course)
  • WebSphere Installation Factory
  • Advanced troubleshooting
  • Troubleshooting performance issues
  • Flexible administration topolgies (Job Manager, Administrative Agent)
  • Security (LDAP, Single Sign on, SSL)
  • WebSphere Scripting
  • Work Load Management (WLM)
  • WebSphere High Availability


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 have a good understanding of the basic administration aspects of WebSphere Application Server v6.x or v7.0. The following courses can provide this experience for students who are not familiar with WebSphere administration:

WebSphere Application Server V7.0 Administration on Linux

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.
