    Thank you for this content. I am writing my diploma thesis about migrating enterprise applications in the Java EE area and I also want to show the differences of the major server providers. In addition to that, I will also try to actually migrate a real enterprise application from WebSphere AS to JBoss EAP(I already consider it the winner in my comparison).

    Do you think you can provide me with more resources that I use for that paper?

    You can also look at that shows how to migrate applications from GlassFish to WildFly.

    Also look at WindRide that assists in migrating JBoss EAP 5, AS 5, or AS 6 server configuration to JBoss EAP 6, AS7, or WildFly 8. The tool analyzes the server configuration files, produces a Windup style HTML report highlighting areas that require changes, and performs the migration.

    Windup is a tool to simplify Java ® application migrations

    Thank you, I already knew about Windup and I will definitely include that in my thesis. Unfortunately the hard part of my actual application migration won’t be related to configuration but with the migration of EJB 1.x parts :(
    I guess there is no tool you know about that helps me with that? I am already considering writing such a tool myself because I couldn’t find something satisfying yet.

  5. Arun Gupta says:

    EJB 1.x is QUITE old :-) I doubt you’ll find any tools to help you migrate from that version so writing one would be useful. Think about how many people would need such a tool though.

    Free J2EE/JEE migration plugin for Eclipse and migration methodology are described in this blog post:

    Where does it mention that plugin? This is only about migrating from WLS to WAS…

    Christian, the migration plugin download and instructions are posted here:
