Administering the WildFly 14 and JBoss EAP 7.2 Application Servers

This Administering the WildFly 14 and JBoss EAP 7.2 Application Servers training class provides hands-on and in-depth coverage on configuring and managing WildFly 14 and JBoss EAP 7.2 servers. It incorporates new server features and all material is current with the new releases. WildFly 14 provides full Java EE 8 support and certification and a new Management console. EAP 7.2 is the supported release of the WildFly 14 server. This course is also suitable for WildFly 13, and newer releases (e.g. WF 15, 16).

This course covers all the important administrative tasks that are required to administer this new version of the server. It starts with basic structure, architecture and installation, and moves on to working with the various management tools and deploying applications. Configuration and management of all the important services and subsystems are covered, as is security, domains, and clustering. All management tools are covered, including direct editing of XML configuration files, using the CLI (Command Line Interface), and using the Web-based Management Console.

“Legacy” security, which is still the default configuration, is covered in depth. There is an overview of the new Elytron security subsystem.

The course is focused, informative, and created by experts in the JBoss/WildFly AS. It will demystify the many important capabilities and structure of WildFly server, and leave you well prepared to install, configure, and manage server installations.
