rich feature set for management
on September 12, 2006
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.
