During the workshop attendees will learn the WebSphere Application Server architecture and experience some of the major features: Liberty Profile: They will install and configure from zero a development environment and deploy a entire configured server to a remote destination using WAS ND profiles. Network deployment: They will explore some features of the Job Manager and IBM installation Manager to install a full WAS ND asynchronously to a remote Linux Red Hat.
