63.7. RHD439: JBoss Clustering

63.7. RHD439: JBoss Clustering


Clustering is a 4-day training focusing on high availability services of JBoss Enterprise Middleware System (JEMS). You will learn how JBoss Application Server leverages JGroups and JBoss Cache for replication and fail-over, how to configure, tune and implement JGroups protocol stacks, how to leverage JBoss Cache in your own middleware application implementation and how to use and configure mod_jk for HTTP load balancing. We will also cover in some detail JBoss Application Server high availability services such as HA-JNDI, HA-JMS and HA-singleton.

"The JBoss for Administrators course was very informative. Our instructor did a great job at answering our questions (some very specific to the student) while maintaining the course direction. I am very excited about applying what I have learned in the course."——Andy Beier, Arizona Statue University, USA
