The IBM WebSphere Application Server Migration Toolkit provides a set of tools for assisting customers in migrating their applications from previous versions of WebSphere Application Server or from third-party application servers to WebSphere Application Server Version 7.0 or Version 8.0. The application migration tools utilize Rational® source code scanning technology to identify known application migration issues in Java source code, JavaServer Pages (JSP), deployment descriptors, and manifest files. Where possible, quick fixes are provided to resolve the issue. The tools are used within the Eclipse environment and give developers complete control over the process. The tools provided as part of this Beta program include
- Application Migration Tool - WebSphere Version to Version
- Application Migration Tool - JBoss AS to WebSphere
- Application Migration Tool - OracleAS to WebSphere
- Application Migration Tool - WebLogic to WebSphere
The Application Migration Tool - WebSphere Version to Version V3.0 Beta adds support specifically to mitigate Version 8 migration issues related to removed APIs, behavior changes, and deprecated features. The tool helps migrate applications from WebSphere Application Server V5.1, V6.0, V6.1 or V7.0 to WebSphere Application Server V8.0.
