  • Have you ever wondered how to install an Application client?
  • Have you ever had trouble connecting to a secure server? 
  • Have you wondered how to call JMX i.e. call WAS Mbeans using Java as opposed to Jython scripting?

The WebSphere Application Server 8.5.5.x – Application Cookbook provides the student with a detailed example-based guide and also a pre-prepared Eclipse workspace to help speed up your learning. This course was produced because I had many members of the public asking for support on how to connect an Application Client (Java client) to a secure WebSphere Application Server. For some reason connecting a Java client to secure WebSphere application sever’s is not very well document. As always, I have tried to simply and distill the core facts so that you can get on with the task at hand.

The course provides scripts to automate the following:

  • Background: Choosing a type of client
  • J2SE Considerations
  • Java EE 5 Considerations
  • Security (WAS Global Security = On)
  • Installing IBM Application Client (FREE Version)
  • Download process
  • Installing Process
  • Creating an Admin Client application
  • Changing Libraries
  • Adding a new JRE (IBM JRE)
  • Running the Code
  • Source Code review
  • Ways to use WAS properties in your Java applications
  • Specifying properties within code
  • Keystore configurations
  • Passing Properties as JVM Arguments
  • Important notes from IBM regarding Application Clients
  • Extra Thin client information
  • Getting server objects and resources
  • Local Help

Duration: 1 Days Self Study

  • Experienced JEE Developers and Administrators having good experience with WebSphere Application Servers.
