Oracle WebLogic Server 11g: Advanced Administration


5 Days

What you will learn

Oracle WebLogic Server is a Java EE application environment that supports the deployment of mission critical

applications using a robust, secure and scalable infrastructure. System administration of WebLogic Server includes a

wide range of activities, from creating and configuring server domains, to deploying and securing applications, to

monitoring and troubleshooting server, application and performance issues.

In this course, students expand upon their basic administrative knowledge and experience, and learn more sophisticated

techniques for working with WebLogic Server and integrating it within the rest of their enterprise. Particular attention is

paid to the topics of authentication, enterprise messaging, clustering and performance. This course also covers some

basic techniques for monitoring server health and for troubleshooting problems. Students continue to use tools such as

the WebLogic Server Administration Console and WebLogic Server Scripting Tool (WLST) for performing these

administration tasks.

Learn To:

Manage domains and templates

Configure a highly available messaging infrastructure

Automate server migration and failover

Utilize LDAP for authentication

Monitor servers using WLDF or SNMP

This course is an upgrade of Oracle WebLogic Server 10g R3: Advanced System Administration.
