You learn how to deploy enterprise Java applications in a single computer configuration. In addition, you learn how to work with features of WebSphere Application Server V9, such as the wsadmin scripting interface, security, and performance monitoring.

Hands-on exercises throughout the course give you practical experience with the skills you develop in the lectures.
