WebSphere 6 Load, Performance Testing and Tuning

Course:  WPSTT
Duration:  3 Days
Level:  II
Course Summary

This is a three day course in how to diagnose and fix performance problems within J2EE 1.4 applications deployed within WebSphere version 6 environments. The course will have a very practical emphasis and includes the lab-based investigation of the performance of a J2EE application. Performance bottlenecks will be identified during the labs. Some of the bottlenecks will be fixed during the labs, others will be discussed and alternative coding options selected and tested.

The course comprises short lectures to outline principles and much longer labs to explore those principles. This is a very hands-on course.
