  Short Summary


This self-paced course with hands-on exercises teaches you the skills that are required to automate the administration of a WebSphere Application Server V8.5 environment.  Overview


This course is also available as classroom course WebSphere Application Server V8.5 Scripting and Automation (WA680G).

This self-paced course with hands-on exercises teaches you the skills that are required to automate the administration of a WebSphere Application Server V8.5 environment.

Most administrative tasks are multi-step and repeatedly used, and GUI-based administration tools can quickly become impractical and even a burden. WebSphere Application Server offers a collection of tools and technologies that you can use to create automated scripts, facilitating system administration

The course describes the scripting facilities in WebSphere Application Server and teaches you how to use the Jython language with WebSphere administrative objects to develop scripts that automate common administrative tasks.

Hands-on exercises throughout the course reinforce lecture content and give you practical experience with the WebSphere Application Server V8.5 scripting environment. Exercises include tasks such as creating and configuring an application server environment, installing and configuring the IBM HTTP Server, and automating the installation of WebSphere Application Server.
