WebLogic 11 Advanced Server Administration

Course:  WLADM2
Duration:  5 Days
Level:  II
Course Summary

Students will learn to customize existing WebLogic server environments. Through this class they will take advantage of some of the more specialized features that WebLogic provides. WLST Scripting is emphasized as a viable alternative to console administration and will be explored in this class. We will discover the basics of MBeans as a administrative unit and manipulate properties several ways in this class. We will emulate load on a server and tune the server to enhance the performance. This is a hands-on learning experience, with each student having their own WebLogic Server to learn with.
