IBM WebSphere Application Server Migration Toolkit

The IBM® WebSphere® Application Server Migration Toolkit is a suite of tools and knowledge collections that enables your organization to quickly and cost-effectively migrate to WebSphere Application Server V7.0 through V8.5.5, whether from a previous version of WebSphere Application Server or competitive application servers including Apache Tomcat Server, JBoss Application Server, Oracle® Application Server, and Oracle WebLogic Server.

New and noteworthy: The toolkit team has refreshed all six of the WebSphere Application Server Migration Tools to version 8.5.5. See the New and Noteworthy in the Announcing: Migration toolkit for WebSphere and Liberty V8.5.5 article for details on what's new and changed.

You can now scan your application for differences between the WebSphere Application Server full profile and the Liberty profile by using the newly available WebSphere Application Server Migration Toolkit – Liberty Tech Preview.

What are the benefits of using the Migration Toolkit?

The Migration Toolkit uses proprietary IBM technology to automate previously time-consuming application and configuration migration tasks, greatly reducing the total time required to deploy WebSphere Application Server V7, V8, or V8.5. The Migration Toolkit has been shown to cut the time required for a typical migration in half. The toolkit also includes an extensive set of publications to support migration planning tasks.
