Courseware for License (Course Code - JON):

Systems management with JBoss® Operations Network on the JBoss® Application Server

JON (JBoss Operations Network) is an enterprise management solution for JBoss servers and other middleware products. It is based on RHQ, which is the upstream open-source product that JON is built on. All the capabilities covered for JON are applicable to working with RHQ also.

The course provides an in-depth, hands-on introduction to JON, with a focus on using it to manage JBoss server installations/clusters (JBoss EAP 6, JBoss AS 7, and/or WildFly 8) as well as associated products such as Apache httpd/mod_cluster. The course starts with the basics, including the somewhat complex installation, and goes on to cover all the important capabilities of JON.
