Product Description

From the Back Cover

The expert guide to deploying and managing any WebSphere Application Server V5.x application and environment

If you're a WebSphere Application Server administrator or developer, this

is your advanced guide for delivering applications rapidly, running them smoothly, and administering them efficiently. Four leading IBM consultants draw on their years of experience to illuminate the key steps involved in taking WebSphere Application Server applications from development to production. They focus on the areas most crucial to success, including application assembly and build, application and infrastructure configuration and administration, and application testing and verification. Along the way, they show how to implement automated deployment processes that can be executed frequently, reliably, and quickly―so you can get your applications to market fast. The focus is on WebSphere Application Server Version 5.1, but much of the information applies to other versions.

Coverage includes

  • Installing, testing, and managing WebSphere Application Server environments: clustering, security, messaging, integration, and more
  • Deploying and managing key J2EE technologies: JDBC, Connectors, EJB, container managed and message driven beans, transactions, JMS, JavaMail, and more
  • Deploying highly available, scalable multi-node WebSphere Application Server environments: clustering, distributed session management, and edge components
  • Advanced considerations: working with Java Management Extensions, caching, and much more
  • Performance-tuning tools
  • Troubleshooting
  • Leveraging key WebSphere deployment and administration tools: ANT, wsadmin, Admin Console, and the Application Server Toolkit
  • Advanced discussions of J2EE and architectural concepts you need to deploy successfully―with practical examples

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is one of the most useful text books I've bought in a long time. It covers an often overlooked but very important part of J2EE development - the build and deploy phase. If you are the person who everyone expects will somehow effortlessly make WAS/J2EE apps transition smoothly into production and run happily for years with no discernable effort on your part this is the book you need. For the same reason, although it is not a developer's book, I'd recommend it to any J2EE developer who wants to make sure their next project is a success.
The book does two big things particularly well:
1) It is an excellent resource for automating the build and deploys processes resulting in huge time savings and very reproducible builds.
2) It is incredibly comprehensive on just about every tweakable parameter in the WAS environment not only telling you what values you can change but also why you might want to change them.

HASH(0x9d1718e8) out of 5 stars Transition a sysadmin? 27 Sept. 2004
By W Boudville - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is basically a sequel to another recent text, "IBM WebSphere System Administration". Here, Barcia et al focus on the problems involved in deploying a WebSphere application. It may be heavily used, within a large company, say, or exposed to many queries from users coming from anywhere on the Internet. They point out that numerous books exist to aid developers of J2EE applications, but relatively few on how you would then deploy and continually administer those applications. Partly, this imbalance is due to the container-specific nature of the latter texts. As shown here. The book has a comprehensive discussion of how to manage a WebSphere. But relatively little carries over to running JBoss or Oracle's 10g server, for example.

A useful feature of the book is how it can help a regular sysadmin make the transition to being a WebSphere sysadmin. A possible upward career move. The knowledge here is more specialised than that for running a generic AIX or linux cluster. But there is enough overlap in some topics to make it a logical move. For example, the book talks about the WAS network deployment architecture. Essentially, it is for load balancing and redundancy. The natural purview of your sysadmin.

Also, if you're not a sysadmin, but an IT manager facing WebSphere deployment issues, you may want to consider redeploying a sysadmin here. Show her this book and see if she's interested.

HASH(0x9d0ddd44) out of 5 stars A Must Have for WebSphere Administrators 16 Sept. 2004
By Robert S. Garnero - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Finally, we have in one reference, all of the important considerations that must be taken into account, when deploying and administering WebSphere applications. The book is based on the deep subject matter expertise of the authors, but more importantly, also on their significant engagement experience over the last 5 years with WebSphere clients. While the book is sufficiently rich in technical detail, so as to appeal to even the most experienced WebSphere administrators, the authors write with an engaging style that can provide knowledge and insight for the most novice of readers. Finally, there is much in the way of J2EE best practice that would well serve J2EE developers.

HASH(0x9d311b10) out of 5 stars The answer to "So we have written the code, now what!?!?" 9 Nov. 2004
By Jordan Miller - Published on
Format: Hardcover
"IBM Websphere: Deployment and Advanced Configuration" provides a single reference for your organization's IT staff to design and most importantly, use J2EE applications and technologies.

The most useful concepts learned from this book were how to automate so many tedious processes that are bound to the development and deployment cycle. The text provides a great starting point for understanding surrounding technologies like ANT and wsadmin. Implementing these automated processes has saved time and eliminated errors.

Aside from recommending best practice deployment concepts, the text provides a hefty resource on application server settings as well. This book has been such a blessing in its ability to provide not only the "how" we enable or modify a setting, but also answers the "why" we would want to do such a thing.

Finally, the text does an excellent job conveying information regarding J2EE technologies and advanced server configurations to provide high availability systems, performance increases, and security hardening.

This book is a must have for any enterprise running J2EE architectures and doubly so if you are using IBM Websphere.

HASH(0x9d0eb744) out of 5 stars An epic tale of J2EE deployment 17 Sept. 2004
By MattO - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I laughed, I cried, it's a real page turner. Seriously, if you want to know the best processes and procedures to get your J2EE application into production in a seamless repeatable manner, then this book is required reading. They guys have written the book on WebSphere application deployment, long before this book was published. This book is based on experts in the field. Read, put it on your shelf so you can refer back to it, and don't forget the excellent code samples.

HASH(0x9d212c30) out of 5 stars Great book for WAS Systems Administrators 13 Jun. 2006
By Music Lover - Published on
Format: Hardcover
For individuals working in the systems administrations space for WebSphere Application Server, this book is a must have. Covering most aspects day to day administrations this book explains clearly and concisely the why's and how's of WAS best practice.

It breifly describes the main concepts that a sys admin would encounter and then goes on to discuss the deployment issues around that particular subject. (See coverage section in the editorial review)

One of the most useful aspects of the book is it's attention to the wsadmin scripting utility (and its integration with ANT) that is favoured by most sys admin's but is lacking in good examples even in the info center. Unfortunately all of the scripting is done using JACL (they explain this reasoning in the book) and it would have been nice to have seen some in Jython. (Note that as of v6.1 there is a utility that does a pretty good job of converting JACL scripts to Jython see [...]

Although this book is based on WAS v5 the majority of it's contents is applicable to v6 also so it is certainly worth the purchase. I work with WAS from v4 - v6 and the book has been very useful to me as a WAS specialist.

I should note that I am an IBM employee and as a WAS technical specialist I work with many organisations helping them to implement their WAS environments. I recommend this book to them without reservation and this is high recommendation as we tend to be more critical than most about WAS material.
