Hi all,

Could anyone please direct me to any info on interview specific JBoss questions & answer from System Administrator point of view? All I see is from Developer/Engineer angle.

Thanks

Looks like no takers for my query? Let me rephrase my request.

Request any advice or opinion on the extent of the knowledge required for a system admin to adequately manage JBoss service from interview point of view.
Simply put how far should a system admin have knowledge of JBoss to be considered ok for his job function?

Regards,
Ravi

Depends on the requirements of the company which is recruiting. At the very basic, i would expect a system admin to know how to install/configure various components in the server and debug issues related to the server.

Good topics to cover would be:

* Clustering
* How it runs under virtualisation
* Basics of Datasource and Transaction management configuration
* Performance tuning

I'd recommend going to jboss.com or jboss.org for more suggestions/topics

For the future, note that this tends to happen over the weekend. Your post was a Saturday (or at least it was in my timezone.) For that matter, it is still a holiday in the US today so not everybody is back yet.

I'll add that it is probably good to know how to install, upgrade and configure the software.

Also note that when you bump your thread, it's likely to get closed by the moderators.

I thought may be I did not make myself clear, that's why there was no response. That was the reason for my 2nd post. Now understood the reason behind it. Thanks for clarifying.
