In this demo I would like to explore some areas of the application server management. Administration of JBoss EAP requires significant amount of manual editing of XML files or hand writing shell scripts to generate and update those XML files on all machines involved in deployment. WAS automates these kinds of tasks and provides flexible wsadmin automation tool with command assist. Even inexperienced WAS administrators can use the GUI and WAS command assist feature will record and then replay those commands using Jython. WAS administrators can also use Eclipse plugin to develop and debug wsadmin Jython scripts.

WAS provides robust GUI and scripting for administration, powerful automation framework and reusable library of admin scripts. Multiple clusters can be created quickly with complete configuration, applications, tuning, etc. Administrative tasks can be easily automated right out of the box. Things are very different in the JBoss land. On the scale of 0 (worst) to 10 (best), I would rate JON “3″ (almost useless) for JBoss management and “7″ for JBoss monitoring. To illustrate my points I have recorded several demos. I think these demos are representative of the kinds of things that system administrators need to do on a daily basis.
