Administering the WildFly 13/14 and JBoss® EAP 7.2 Application Servers

Administering the WildFly 13/14 and JBoss® EAP 7.2 Application Servers

This course provides hands-on and in-depth coverage on configuring and managing WildFly 13/14 and JBoss EAP 7.2 servers. It incorporates new server features and all material is current with the new releases. WildFly 13 provides full Java EE 8 support and a new Management console. EAP 7.2 is the supported release of the WildFly 13 server. WildFly 14 adds Java EE 8 certification.

The course is very hands-on, with brief hands-on mini labs throughout the material which illustrate a topic and help with retention. It also includes numerous larger hands-on labs to dig deeply into a topic.


After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Understand WildFly architecture and JEE server structure
  • Install and configure the server
  • Understand the structure of both standalone installations and domain-based installations
  • Understand the management model and the XML configuration files
  • Use the management tools including direct editing of XML, using the CLI (Command Line Interface), scripting, and the Web management console (new design in WF 13)
  • Understand deployment types and packaging (JARS, WARS, EARS …), and deploy applications
  • Understand modular classloading in WildFly Server, and how it affects application deployment and dependencies
  • Configure and monitor the Web container
  • Configure important services, including datasources, JNDI, EJB, JMS messaging, and logging
  • Understand and configure WildFly security using the classic (default) security configuration
  • Be familiar with the new Elytron security model
  • Use monitoring tools, and identify areas for tuning
  • Understand and use clustering with WildFly, including including load balancing with the built-in front-end load balancer and Apache httpd and mod_cluster
  • Understand and administer a domain of WildFly servers
  • Be Familiar with using the server’s Java EE 8 capabilities (different in WF 13/14)
