About remote classroom training
Remote classroom training enables students to attend a local
classroom course while reducing travel costs and avoiding delays due to
low attendance cancellations. Student attend a course in an authorized
Red Hat classroom local to their area while interacting and learning
from an instructor located in a different classroom.
Systems administrators, build/deployment managers, and quality
assurance engineers who want to optimally administer JBoss
Application Server deployments.
Base experience with system administration on Windows, UNIX, or
Linux operating systems
Understanding of hardware and networking
No prior knowledge of Java?, scripting, or JBoss Developer Studio
If your company needs to train more than one employee at the same
time, take advantage of our multi-student discounts.
- Class Contents
1.Unit 1 - Installation and basic configuration of JBoss Enterprise
Application Platform (EAP). Students learn about the hardware and
software required to run JBoss products. Students will also learn
how to determine which software versions to use and about the
interdependencies of supporting software.
- Technologies covered: Java, JBoss EAP, JMX
Lab: Install JBoss Enterprise Application Platform. Also install
JBoss Admin Console as a front-end GUI for management and control.
- 2.Unit 2 - Deploying enterprise applications to JBoss EAP. In
this unit, Students learn what defines an enterprise application,
how to deploy it to JBoss EAP, and what types of supporting
components are needed. Students also learn what deployable packages
exist and the structure of package internals.
- Technologies: JBoss EAP, J2/JEE, deployable packages
Lab: Verify that your application is deployed. Use JBoss Admin
Console to deploy packages.
- 3.Unit 3 - Monitoring and controlling JBoss EAP. Students will
learn what tools are available to monitor JBoss EAP installations,
how to configure those tools, and what information they offer. The
student will be introduced to the JBoss Admin Console and will
experience how it can be used to monitor and manage applications
deployed to the application server.
- Technologies: JBoss EAP, JMX, JConsole, JBoss Admin Console
Labs: Monitoring the application server with Jconsole. Using JBoss
Admin Console to monitor datasources, Enterprise Java Beans, web
servers, and other application components.
- 4.Unit 4 - Connecting to JBoss EAP. In this unit, students
learns what connections are available and can provide access to
JBoss components. The student will be exposed to web protocols such
as HTTP, and secure socket layer (SSL) via HTTP/S. Various services,
such as Java Naming and Directory Interface and Java Messaging
Service, will be introduced and discussed. The vulnerabilities of
these choices will be introduced, with best practices around how to
protect the appropriate ports.
- Technologies: HTTP, SSL, AJP, JNDI, JMS
Labs: Protect incoming ports from denial-of-service (DOS) attacks
- 5.Unit 5 - Securing applications with JBoss solutions. Students
will gain an understanding of the various forms security takes
within an enterprise system and how they are best used. They will
learn to slim down their EAP installation to trim away any
unnecessary services or applications and about application-level
security and how encryption can be implemented. A discussion of the
pros and cons of container-managed security is included.
- Technologies: JAAS, LDAP, HTTP/S, SSL certificates
Labs: Secure the system by insuring that no unnecessary connections
are possible. Use an LDAP server (Red Hat Data Server) to
authentication of user logins.
- 6.Unit 6 - Troubleshooting applications on JBoss EAP. In this
unit, the student will learn about the tools available to help
understand and identify potential application problems as they
arise. Best practices in response to such situations will be
introduced. Database bottlenecks, memory management issues, garbage
collection, and other performance-stealing problems will be covered.
- Technologies: Java, JBoss EAP, stack traces, profilers, software
- Lab: Identify a performance bottleneck in the installed
application and decide how to resolve the performance issue.
- 7.Unit 7 - Clustering applications with JBoss EAP. Students will
learn how to deploy a clustered application into a tuned and
clustered production environment. The unit asks students to tie
together previous learnings to deploy and configure a potentially
- Technologies: JBoss EAP, JBoss Operations Network, JGroups,
Lab: Verify that the provided applications are fully configured for
the production environment (datasources, deployment descriptors,
- 8.Unit 8 - Optimizing applications for JBoss EAP. In this unit,
students will learn how to load-balance the embedded web server in
JBoss. They will also learn about best methods for fail-over and
session state management in the application server using caching
technologies. After configuring an application for deployment to the
load-balanced server, the student will learn how to tune
request-handling parameters for optimum scalability.
- Technologies: JBoss Cache, Apache load balancing modules
Labs: Cluster a web-based application with JBoss. Start two
clustered instances of JBoss, then deploy the application to the
cluster, and watch what happens when the serving node crashes.
