Wow.  This is a huge topic...  For example, here is a book that is supposed to be published soon that talks to this...

http://www.amazon.com/dp/0137009526

In order to answer this question, I need to know:

- What do you know about WebSphere Administration?
- What do you know about Python?

Where do you want to start?

Hi,

I have knowledge of WebSphere Application Server 6.1 administration, installation, creating an infrastructure, application environment creation (app. server, clusters, virtual host, security part, ect.,)

I am managing these things manually, I would like to write a scripts like jacl, jython, python to automate the above mentioned process by passing a property file (which has the paramaters like app. server name, cluster name, node name, jvm settings, data sources, ect.,).

I just have an idea that these can be done by use of jython/python scripts, i would like to configuring/deploy, manage websphere environment using the scripts.
Please provide you suggestion/help.
Thanks.

Jacl, and Jython are the available scripting languages. Personally, I much prefer Jython because I find it much easier to read and understand.  I also find it more scalable than I do Jacl.

- Can Jython scripts read & process property files?
  Yes, quite easily.

Some Jacl & Jython scripts for doing some of the things you propose are available from here:

This looks to be exactly for what you are looking though.  Unfortunately, it's not yet available:
