Format: Paperback
This book demonstrates how IBM has built out its WebSphere Application Server, in Version 6. There is a rich feature set, including a full integration of a Tivoli directory server. The book's length is due to the many features being documented, with extensive screen shots to aid the reader. The steps are well described and the reader should have no problem following the combination of text and diagrams.

One notable thing about the book is the amount of space devoted to managing the WebSphere security. Many pages of various authentication mechanisms and LDAP registry manipulations. Plus, the management of digital certificates, including how to revoke these.

Somewhat ironically, if all you want is a standard http web server, then this is also explained, in a relatively short section of the book.

The step by step format of this book is excellent. Within minutes after unpacking the book I was putting it to good use. I had spent a few days trying to follow all the cross references and procedures in the RedBooks for configuring SSL and was getting lost. But this book provided all the information I need in chronological order with step by step instructions and screenshots. The procedures are not infested with references to other 500 page documents or worse yet links that lead to the general ibm support page. And no "out side the scope of this book" statements leave you hanging at critical points.

Format: Paperback
I am an Applciation Developer who bought this book but I am afraid to say that it does not meet my expectation. The title of the book should be renamed as - "WebSphere Application Server: Administration and Deployment".

1) The book assumes that you know the Deployment Managers, Nodes, Cells and their relations. There should be an Intro. section which talks about the basic terms used for Webpshere.

2) There is not enough coverage of Webservices/SOA . How do we create a enterprise applciations using SIBus. At least a Hellow World applciation should have been mentioned. More coverage should be on developing enterprise aplciation using the services/components provided by Webpshere 6

3) The level of this book is: Novice to Intermediate but in true terms is actually : Intermediate to Advance.

Overall I still think that the best book published on the Webpshere is the Websphere Bible by Brayon Kataoka et al. Though it was on WAS 4.x, it still does a good job of explaining the fundamentals of Webpshere platform and how to develop and administer application on it.
