Pinned topic Support for migrating WAS CE ?

‏2010-10-01T13:53:43Z |
Hi,

Does the migration toolkit support migrating a WASCE 2.1.1.3 projects to WAS 7 or WAS 6.1 ?
If not, any thoughts on how to migrate a WASCE project to a WAS project ?

Is the tool (very) different (or even completely something else) then the JEE specifications migration wizard in the RSA or Software Architect for WebSphere editions ?

Thanks.

    Hi,
    Thanks for looking at the Websphere Application Server version to version migration tool.

    The 2.0 release of the migration tool does not support migrating from WebSphere Application Server Community Edition to WebSphere Application Server. However, there is a Redbook on Migrating from WebSphere Application Server Community Edition to WebSphere Application Server (http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/abstracts/sg247433.html). There is also tool on alphaWorks for Application Advancement Assistant for WebSphere Application Sever Community Edition (http://www.alphaworks.ibm.com/tech/wasma). It appears that this book and tool came out in 2008 and are geared at migrating to WebSphere Application Server 6.1. While I have not stepped through this migration process, perhaps after working through the initial migration using those tools, you could then run the Application Migration tool for version migration to catch any issues with the Version 6.1 to Version 7 migration. There is also some additional CE migration education at http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/spaces/wasce?pageid=707.

    The Application Migration Tool for WebSphere Application Server Version to Version migration focues on differences in behavior between WebSphere Application Server releases, removed features, Java SE differences, and some Java EE differences. It does not migrate applications through levels of Java EE Specification.

    Thank you for looking at the migration tool.
