Connections administration is not easy. The administrator has to work from the WebSphere "wsadmin" command-line interface where he has to enter a lot of commands to accomplish one simple task. Everything is case-sensitive, temporary variables must be used to transfer values between commands. It can take some time to find out which combination of commands solves a certain problem. People responsible for Connections administration often are not familiar to do their job this way. This session gives an overview of how Connections administration works and the challenges an administrator is facing. We will show some typical examples and how they are solved using the out-of-the-box Connections administration techniques. Additionally we will introduce the "Connections Administration Toolkit (CAT)", a web-based application offering a graphical interface instead of a command-line. CAT reduces dramatically the complexity of Connections administration and the time needed to perform administrative tasks .
