Multiple stand alone application servers can be managed by using a job manager through administrator agents.
Websphere is focused more on connectivity, integration, and web services. It has better performance, rich implementation of J2EE, more extensive integration and traction management compare to Weblogic.
Weblogic has default traction attributes as supports, while websphere does not have such type of the default traction attribute.
The administrator can find the binding information in the deployment descriptor.
Application scoped resources can be removed from an enhanced EAR file by removing META—INF/ibmconfig directory.
Yes, you can, as long as system i box can be accessed through network.
Yes, you can, during profile creation wizard.
WAS (WebServer Application Server) stores all the configuration in one central location referred as “Master Repository”. The sync ensures the configuration in both local and master repositories are same and in sync.
No, SIBus messaging engine cannot be managed by fine-grained administration.
No, you can’t as there is no GUI interface for version 5.
In asymmetric clustering, the partition can be defined dynamically and runs on a single cluster at a time. The task which is particular to an appropriate cluster can be routed to that cluster. Usually, clustering is used by banks.
No, migration wizard only provides minimal function and it does not enable any services by default.
No, you can’t as this file is locked by application server process.
Including special characters in your local host name may cause problem in profile creation.
No, it will not work as WAS 8 should be installed after those earlier versions.
If the administrator is implementing an application which requires a connection to the databasethen he needs to create a JDBC provider.
Application server can be administered using admin console and wsadmin.
The cluster must be added as a member to the Service Integration Bus (SIBus).
WebSphere MQ is an application program that allows you to communicate with each other using messages and queues. This form of communication is referred as commercial messaging. There are two methods for application to communicate, Request/Response and Fire & Forget.
Job manager or deployment manager.
The default ports you use are HTTP: 9080 and HTTP: 9443.
A WebSphere’s web server plugin component routes requests to WebSphere cluster web containers. If there is a communication failure with a particular cluster member, it will mark that member down and start routing all requests to the remaining cluster member till the original is available.
QueueManager is the important component of WebSphere MQ. It is accountable for storing and routing messages to other queue manager within MQ, and it also communicate with the outside world.
Web-sphere application server contact the registry for user when users
Undefined host name for your system i box
Flexible management topology can be an alternative to the network deployment cell.
Caching server provides functionality like
Yes, it will cause an unattended installation of the application server.
Websphere MQ programming APIs include
No, you can’t. You have to install it using QShell command line.
WAR or EAR files are required to deploy an application into Web-sphere.
Class loader policy, JAAS authentication aliases and virtual host information can enhance EARs support apart from EARs support and shared libraries.
A cell is referred as a grouping of nodes into a single administrative domain. A cell can have multiple nodes which are all managed from a single point.
JMS provider type, bus name and the bus destination.
The extended deployment in WebSphere leverages enhanced qualities of service with features optimizing IT resources. It sp three areas
Web-sphere is a tool based on Java and developed by IBM, to manage and create websites. Web-sphere is often used to build interactive web-oriented applications that support business functions required for e-commerce, it integrates all the data across different operating system and applications.
Important components of Web-Sphere are
The administrator can assign security permissions to actual users by mapping application roles to users or groups in the WebSphere user registry.
In Websphere application can be deployed in three ways
The WebSphere edge server is used to enhance the performance of web based systems. It can be used as a proxy server. There are basically four components in the web sphere they are caching proxy, content distribution, network dispatcher and application server at the edge.
SSLPEER is a string usually distinguished name of MQ client, which links to QueueManager securely using QueueManager. This is a mechanism used to identify client.
Some of the features available in Web-sphere includes
Connecting pool is a cache of database connections maintained so that connection can be re-used when future requests to the database are required. If all the connections are occupied, a new connection is created and is added to the pool.
Administrator must create the new profile with a services enabled before starting the wizard, and then point to that profile during the migration wizard.
Servlets can be protected by method permissions.
No, you can’t but you can delete a profile by manageprofiles command facility.
