Administering the WildFly 8 Application Server
JBoss Training Overview

The JBoss® series of application servers is one of the most popular open source Java application servers on the market. The latest release, rebranded as WildFly 8 (WF 8), builds on the established JBoss 7 app server, and includes a number of added features that make the server more responsive and easier to manage, including a completely new Web container (Undertow). It is a certified implementation of the Java EE 7 specification.

This course covers all the important administrative tasks that are required to administer this new version of the server. It starts with installation, architecture, and basic configuration and monitoring. It covers management using the new and expanded Web console, as well as the structure of the management model and how to use it via the admin CLI (Command Line Interface) and via scripting. It includes coverage of using the management tools to deploy and configure Web and Enterprise applications, datasources, JMS resources (topics, queues), as well as covering the configuration of the major subsystems, including the Web (HTTP), Web Services, Messaging (including the new HornetQ based provider), Logging, and Security subsystems. You will also learn the structure and contents of the underlying XML configuration files that reflect the actual configuration. The course also covers the use of WF 8 in standalone mode (consistent with previous releases of JBoss AS), and provides an overview of the new domain model for managing multiple server nodes from a single management point. The course also provides an overview of clustering WF 8, with a focus on load balancing with mod_cluster.

The course is focused and 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 manage server installations.
