from LinkedIN WebSphere Users Group Forum ... here's an excellent book about the administration of eCommerce applications ... This book is really a boon to all ... The book is a comprehensive knowledge-base about all essential aspects of administering Web Services. In summary, using one’s own tool / scripts provides a complete flexibility in maintaining them ...
from Amazon ... a pick for any advanced library offering analysis of web services in general and Jython scripting in particular. From mastering Jython rules to using scripting to list, view, and install AppServer applications, this is a pick for any working in any WebSphere environment.
from WebSphere Community BlogAfter spending a considerable amount of time teaching myself Jython and learning to administer WebSphere Application Server using it, I wish I had a copy of this book when I first started writing Jython scripts for WebSphere Application Server administration. The authors do a great job of both introducing the reader to the Jython language as well as introducing the reader to the WebSphere Application Server administrative objects.
from Amazon CanadaThis book gave me a good head start ... paired with the IBM documentation it almost covered everything I needed.
from Amazon UKThis book clearly explains these [administrative scripting] objects, how to use them and gives sample jython scripts that provide a useful toolkit. As an additional bonus the scripts are available from the download page of the Book's entry at IBM press.
