WildFly Configuration, Deployment, and Administration is published by Packt Publishing in November 2014. This book has 402 pages in English, ISBN-13 978-1783286232.
WildFly 8 is a modular, lightweight, Java EE-compliant application server. Application deployment and management is simplified with WildFly’s centralized and easy-to-use administration interface. It supports high availability and latest web technologies, such as web sockets and a non-blocking API. There was previously a lack of a system-administration-free platform that allowed the scaling of Java EE applications, but WildFly 8 in combination with OpenShift fills that gap.
The book starts with an explanation of the installation of WildFly and application server configuration. Then, it moves on to the configuration of enterprise services and also explores the new web container Undertow. It then covers domain configuration, application deployment, and application server management. By the end of the book, you will have a firm grasp of all the important aspects of clustering, load balancing, and WildFly security. This guide is invaluable for anyone who works with or is planning to switch to WildFly.
