Oracle 9i Application Server: Basic Administration

In this course Participants will learn the basic tasks which will enable them to effectively administer, monitor and secure an Oracle 9i AS environment. After an introduction to Oracle 9i AS installation and architecture, participants gain hands-on experience configuring its components and modules, such as Oracle HTTP Server, Oracle 9i AS Web Cache, and Oracle 9i AS Containers for J2EE. Participants also learn how to deploy PL/SQL applications as well as J2EE applications such as Servlets, JSPs, Web applications and Web Services. Oracle 9i AS Single Sign-On (SSO) and Oracle Internet Directory (OID) are introduced as part of the security concept of Oracle 9i AS.

This course helps Participants prepare to successfully pass the Oracle certification exam #1z0-301.
