I was learning WebSphere application Server . I was confuse with some of the terms like
1) What exactly WebSphere application Server means what it do... what is its purpose ? how can we define WebSphere application Server. 2) what is the difference between Express , Base, ND..? 3) what meant by profile? why it is needed? 4) what is httpd.conf, plugin-cfg.xml file ? what they purpose? 5) what is Node? why it is needed? 6) horizontal clustering and vertical clustering difference? 7) SSL setting procedure?
can any one clear my doubt ... and one more favour can any one send it to my mail id UseTheForumNotEmail
Have you look at the WebSphere site yet? It answers some of the basic questions like what WAS is and the differences between editions. If you don't know this, it is too early to answer the other questions.
Also, what resource are you using for learning WebSphere? Do you have a book? If not, the redbooks are free.
