I have an EGL JSF application that currently runs on WAS 6.1 and I want to migrate it to WAS 8.5. I've loaded RBD 8.5 on my PC and have imported the EGL project into my workspace. I changed the following items on my EGL build descriptor.
Server type to "Websphere 8.X"
J2eelevel to "6.0"
I also changed the Java version under project facets from 1.5 to 1.6. When I try to change the EAR version from 1.4 to 6.0 I get a warning error that says "further configuration available". When I click on the link it says "Update deployment descriptor namespace and version". What does that mean and how do I do that? When I try to run my project I get an error that says:
Cannot connect to jdbc/iseries: Exception occurred while the JNDI NamingManager was processing a javax.naming.Reference object.
EGL0002I The error occurred in logon processing the processUser function.
Did I miss something in the migration that will allow me to move to WAS 8.5?
