WebSphere for z/OS Version 8 Implementation

IBM Course Code: ES685CE

Vendor# ES68G

GK# 9338

Course Overview

WebSphere Application Server (WAS) Version 8.0 (V8) for z/OS provides a Java2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) runtime environment for Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB), along with servlets and JavaServer Pages (JSP) in web applications.

WAS V8 extends the platform established in WebSphere for z/OS V7, bringing new functionality for application management, and new flexible management and administration options.

Learn how to install and customize WebSphere V8.0 for z/OS, and how to deploy EJB applications and web applications. Reinforce the concepts you learn in lectures with extensive hands-on laboratory exercises.

Note: This course does not address Java application development for z/OS, and it and does not teach the use of programming tools such as IBM Rational Application Developer 8.0.

What You'll Learn

  • Understand the basics of object-oriented applications, EJBs and the J2EE standard runtime environment
  • Prepare the base z/OS environment, including all system prerequisites
  • Plan for and configure the WAS V8 runtime environment using the supplied WebSphere Customization Tools (WCT) workstation application
  • Design and implement a complete server security scheme for WAS V8 on your z/OS system
  • Customize your WAS V8 runtime on z/OS
  • Set up and run the Installation Verification Test (IVT)
  • Deploy an EJB application and a web application into your new WAS V8 runtime using the systems management administrative functions
  • Configure and manage network deployment, including a deployment manager and node agents
  • Configure web-based topologies for WAS V8 using the IBM HTTP server on z/OS together with the WebSphere plug-in
  • Install and configure an the Apache-based web server on z/OS to host the WebSphere for z/OS plug-in
  • Configure and use a web server node in WebSphere to assist managing the web server plug-in file
  • Create a cluster by cloning your first application server
  • See how the plug-in can perform load balancing and achieve high availability
  • Create a proxy server, and drive your applications through this proxy server
  • Define a JDBC driver and data source and deploy a sample application to connect to a DB2 for z/OS subsystem through the UDB universal driver type 4
  • Describe the main components and infrastructure of the WebSphere for z/OS Java messaging run time environment
  • Plan for the monitoring of performance in your new WAS V8 runtime
  • Plan for the modification of the installation security configuration necessary to support J2EE application security

Who Needs To Attend

This advanced course is for experienced z/OS system programmers responsible for the installation and customization of WAS V8, along with Information Technology (IT) professionals responsible for the deployment of EJB and web applications into WAS V8 on z/OS.

Teams of two or three individuals from an enterprise are recommended to attend. Teams should include the z/OS system programmer responsible for the installation of WAS V8, an application assembler responsible for deploying EJB and web applications, and possibly a WAS specialist. The range of skills needed for deploying WebSphere eBusiness applications is such that it is rare for one IT professional to have expertise in all areas of WebSphere.
