WebSphere Application Server (WAS) Version 6.1 (V6) for z/OS provides a Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) runtime environment for Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB), along with servlets and Java Server Pages (JSP) in Web applications.
This course focuses on security and security-related topics and provides technical details to design and implement secure solutions with WebSphere. It will provide information technology (IT) Architects, IT Specialists, application designers, application developers, application assemblers, application deployers, and consultants with information necessary to design, develop, and deploy secure e-business applications using IBM WebSphere Application Server V6.1.
This course not only discusses theory but also provides exercises and sample applications that you will use during the labs.
Implementing security in a WebSphere environment requires that security administration, systems programming, and WebSphere application development staff work closely together.
Learn how to secure the WebSphere V6.1 for z/OS infrastructure, and how to secure EJB applications and Web applications.
Reinforce the concepts you learn in lectures with extensive hands-on laboratory exercises.
Note: This course does not address Java application development for z/OS, and it and does not teach the use of programming tools such as IBM Rational Application Developer 7.0 . However we will use the Application Server Toolkit (ASTK) to change the deployment descriptors of the applications we will install in order to set the security artifacts.
This intermediate course is intended for experienced z/OS system programmers responsible for securing the infrastructure of WAS V6, along with Information Technology (IT) professionals responsible for the secure deployment of EJB and Web applications into WAS V6 on z/OS.
It is recommended that teams of two or three individuals from an enterprise attend this course. Teams should include the z/OS system programmer responsible for the installation of WAS V6, an application assembler responsible for deploying EJB and Web applications, and possibly a WAS specialist. The range of skills needed for securing WebSphere e-business applications is such that it is rare for one IT professional to have expertise in all areas of WebSphere and RACF.
You should have:
This course assumes that the initial zWebSphere installation and customization have already been implemented in a network deployment cell configuration, including a Deployment Manager, Node Agent, and Application server. The basic implementation of zWebSphere is not covered in this course. Individuals who need training in the implementation of WebSphere on z/OS should consider completing other appropriate courses in the curriculum prior to attending this course.
