New Redbook Published: "WebSphere Application Server V6.1 on the Solaris 10 Operating System"

SG247584 Redbook Cover The final version of the Redbook titled "WebSphere Application Server V6.1 on the Solaris 10 Operating System" has been published. In this book, we document how WebSphere Application Server V6.1 and Solaris 10 can be configured, optimized, and managed. We described how to virtualize and manage WAS installation, deployment strategies and scenarios, the advanced features of Solaris 10 (e.g. SMF, Resource Management, Process Rights, Containers and Zones, ZFS, DTrace), the differences of WAS on Solaris from other platforms (e.g. Sun JDK), how to monitor and tune WAS along with Sun JVM, Solaris, and much more.

I personally would like to thank to all those from both Sun and IBM sides who helped make this project happened as well as those who participated and contributed on the project. I am very appreciative of those reviewers from various Sun and IBM engineering organizations who spent many hours for accuracy and correctness of the content. We tried our best to recognize them in the Preface of the book. If we inadvertently left any of you out, we apologize. I also am thankful for those who sent me great questions and feedback for the book from around the world.

Last but not the least, I must thank my family 'AAAA' for giving me love and support while I was working on the book many weeks and nights away from and at home. Without you, I couldn't have accomplished this. I love you all.

Finally, below are some comments we got so far for the book. Please feel free to send them along, rate it at the Redbook site, or comment here on the blog.

  • "Good informations, we use it a lot", "Excellent Redbook...very informative!"
  • " Good work.", "Great..We have been waiting for."
  • "Excellent", "Very useful, This Redbook is very useful for our Business Partners, because they need the information and technique how to configure/use WebSphere Application Server on Solaris 10 virtualization technology."

So, go download the following and make most use of your Solaris platform -- the best OS on the planet!

Enjoy.

A New Redbook (DRAFT): WebSphere Application Server V6.1 on Solaris

Sun and IBM WebSphere teams have collaborated together to write this new Redbook titled "IBM WebSphere Application Server V6.1 on the Solaris Operating System". I, along with my Sun colleague Dileep Kumar, were part of the IBM Redbook Residency in November and December of 2007. We enjoyed working with the IBM team that included Phil Monson (one of the finest project managers), Dennis Martin, Ilari Ahtiainen and Joe Reinwald on the project.

The book is now available as a draft Redbook on the internet at: http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redpieces/abstracts/sg247584.html.

This book documents the best practices of deployment and performance management of WAS v6.1 on Solaris 10. Chapters include:

  • Chapter 1. Introduction to WebSphere Application Server on Sun Solaris
  • Chapter 2. Configuring a Solaris environment for WebSphere Application Server
  • Chapter 3. Installation of WebSphere Application Server for Solaris 10
  • Chapter 4. Installation of WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment for Solaris 10
  • Chapter 5. Configuration of WebSphere Application Server in Advanced Solaris 10 Environment
  • Chapter 6. Management and Maintenance of WAS on Solaris
  • Chapter 7. Advanced Topologies
  • Chapter 8. Security and Identity Management
  • Chapter 9. WebSphere Application Server Performance Tuning on Solaris 10
  • Chapter 10. Problem Determination
  • Appendix A. WebSphere Application Server V6.0.2 considerations
  • Appendix B. Sun Solaris 8 Migration Assistant (Etude)
  • Appendix C. Additional material

We are still ironing out some contents and quite close to a release version. Please provide us with your feedback. You can reach me at {FirstName}.{LastName}@Sun.COM -- see my name at the top of my blog.
