Self-paced virtual classroom (SPVC) courses provide the same deep technical content as WebSphere Education classroom courses, but allow you to learn on your own schedule. You can stop and start a self-paced virtual class as needed during the 60-day access period.
This self-paced course combines streaming lecture with a hands-on lab exercise to introduce participants to the migration of a DataPower application from one environment to another.
In the course lecture, students learn multiple options for performing the migration of a DataPower configuration from one platform to another while identifying common problems and tools that can be used to mediate them. Deployment policies are a powerful method for modifying configuration properties during migration. The lecture describes how to create and use deployment polices and how to integrate external scripting tools, such as Python/ANT (Another Neat Tool) and shell scripts.
Deployment policies are used to control the acceptance and rejection of configuration objects onto the DataPower device, and to facilitate the modification of object parameters during importation. The different ports used on the Web Service Proxies and Multi-Protocol Gateways in development, testing, and production are examples of these properties. Deployment polices can be used with all of the primary configuration import processes, such as the remote application domain configuration definition and the import features of the WebGUI, command-line interface (CLI), and XML Management Interfaces.
The course concludes with a hands-on lab exercise that shows how to manipulate these environment-specific values during an application migration. Students create a DataPower configuration satisfying two use cases. This configuration is moved from one domain to another, simulating the movement of an application from one DataPower appliance to another. In the first use case, a migration occurs using a deployment policy, created as part of this lab, during an import. The second use case uses ANT and shell scripts.
