This book is organized as
Chapter 1, "Introduction" on page 1, talks about the IBM On Demand operating environment and its roadmap, key areas of performance, and guidelines to tune them. We also discuss the process of performance tuning and recognize the limits of performance tuning in the system.
Chapter 2, "Overview of WebSphere Application Server V5" on page 19, provides a brief overview of Java
2 platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE), including J2EE architecture, standard services provided by J2EE, application
Chapter 3, "Overview of DB2 UDB V8" on page 47, covers the design of DB2 UDB V8. This chapter gives you a brief overview of DB2 UDB and discusses topics like the product family, the architecture, and the tools. With this knowledge you are prepared to understand the following
Chapter 4, "DB2 UDB V8 and WAS V5 integrated environment" on page 75, discusses the topology selection in the WebSphere Application Server and DB2 UDB integrated environment that implements the multi-
Chapter 5, "Operational setup" on page 117, discusses the general steps to get DB2 UDB V8 and WebSphere Application Server V5 working together to serve specific business and application requirements. The new DB2 EJB sample application named "AcessEmployee" is introduced in detail to let you have a starting point to show you how DB2 UDB V8 and WebSphere Application Server V5 fit together. In addition, we also discuss the available JDBC drivers shipped with DB2 UDB V8 and the differences between those drivers.
Chapter 6, "WebSphere Application Server V5 performance tuning" on page 169, discusses tuning an existing WebSphere environment for performance and J2EE application best practices for performance. Performance tuning methodology and guidelines are also provided. We also cover the Performance Monitoring infrastructure (PMI) and performance tuning and monitoring tools found in WebSphere Application Server V5.
Chapter 7, "Monitoring and tuning of DB2 UDB V8" on page 237, covers performance tuning on DB2 UDB. It starts with the setup of a new project and the gathering of information about the project and the system. We show what to think of during the development phase, as well as the things to be done when the system is up and running. Learn how to monitor the system and how to use the tools provided by DB2 UDB for tuning and maintaining your system.
Chapter 8, "DB2 UDB V8 and WAS V5 integrated performance" on page 287, provides a description of the components that have an important performance impact in a WebSphere Application Server and DB2 UDB integrated environment, and offers some best-practices guidelines for their usage.
Chapter 9, "Integrated troubleshooting" on page 337, describes some common
