JBoss MASS Goals and Priorities

Goals

There's a common need for a set of tools to assist in migrating applications and artifacts from proprietary, competing technologies and from older versions of JBoss technologies to the latest versions. These tools will be valuable to Red Hat, to Red Hat's partners and system integrators and to customers. The tools will help to assess the scope and risk before a migration starts and also will automate the migration of many artifacts.

 

Priorities

 

Speaking for Red Hat only, the highest priority is the Application Server Migration Tool (including Hibernate) - this is the most widely used of the JBoss servers and the standardization around Java EE sets pretty high expectations regarding portability.
