* While Oracle have killed oc4j / OAS in favour of WLS it has a pretty small installed base - may not be much demand.

 

It will be able to import jar, war, ear, rar, and sar application archives and perform the following steps :

Phase 1

Assessment

 

  • report non-standard packaging structure
  • report non-standard deployment descriptors
  • analyse the application and report the use of any non-standard APIs

 

Migration

 

  • Convert server configuration files to JBoss EAP format (e.g. data sources, JMS topic/queue definitions, etc.)

 

Phase 2

Migration
