Students enter this class with a basic knowledge of creating and administering domains. Through this class they will take advantage of some of the more specialized features that Weblogic provides. We will emulate load on a server and tune the server to enhance the performance. This is a hands-on learning experience; each student has their own Weblogic Server.
Course Length: 5 Days

Participants should have taken the Weblogic Server Administrative fundamentals class. Familiarity with installing and configuring software on a Windows platform is essential. Some knowledge of Java is helpful, but not necessary
