  • About Web and App Server

    A Server is any combination of hardware or software designed to provide services to clients. When used alone, the term typically refers to a computer which may be running a server operating system, but is also used to refer to any software or dedicated hardware capable of providing services.

    The word server is used quite broadly in information technology. Despite the many Server branded products available (such as Server editions of Hardware, Software and/or Operating Systems), in theory any computerized process that shares a resource to one or more client processes is a Server. To illustrate this, take the common example of File Sharing. While the existence of files on a machine does not classify it as a server, the mechanism which shares these files to clients by the operating system is the Server.

    Almost the entire structure of the Internet is based upon a client-server model. High-level root nameservers, DNS servers, and routers direct the traffic on the internet. Virtually every action taken by an ordinary Internet user requires one or more interactions with one or more servers.

Course Outline

This Administering the WildFly 8 Application Server training class provides hands-on and in-depth coverage on configuring and managing WildFly 8 - the latest release in the very popular JBoss series of application servers. This course has been completely rewritten to support WildFly 8's many new features and changes compared to the JBoss 7 server.

The course is very hands-on, with brief hands-on mini-labs throughout the material which illustrate a topic and help with retention. It also includes numerous larger hands-on labs to dig deeply into a topic.

This course covers all the important administrative tasks that are required to administer this new version of the server. It starts with basic structure, architecture and installation, and moves on to working with the various management tools and deploying applications. Configuration and management of all the important services and subsystems are covered, as is security, domains, and clustering. All management tools are covered, including direct editing of XML configuration files, using the CLI (Command Line Interface), and using the Web-based Management Console. See the list of Sklls Gained and the Detailed Outline for more details.

The course is focused, informative, and created by experts in the JBoss/WildFly AS. It will demystify the many important capabilities and structure of WildFly 8, and leave you well prepared to install, configure, and manage server installations.

  • Understand WF8 architecture and JEE server structure.
  • Install and configure the server.
  • Understand the structure of both standalone installations and domain-based installations.
  • Understand the management model and the XML configuration files.
  • Use the management tools including direct editing of XML, using the CLI (Command Line Interface), scripting, and the Web management console.
  • Understand deployment types and packaging (JARS, WARS, EARS ...), and deploy applications.
  • Understand modular classloading in WF8, and how it affects application deployment and dependencies.
  • Configure and monitor the Web container.
  • Configure important services, including datasources, JNDI, EJB, JMS messaging, and logging.
  • Understand and configure WF8 security.
  • Use monitoring tools, and identify areas for tuning.
  • Understand and use clustering with WF8, including including load balancing with Apache httpd and mod_cluster.
  • Understand and administer a domain of WF8 servers.
