Free Port Will Rapidly Migrate WebLogic-Based Applications to JBoss 3.0
Free Port Will Rapidly Migrate WebLogic-Based Applications to JBoss 3.0

(January 24, 2003) - A new free port from JBoss Group LLC enables rapid migration of applications running on BEA WebLogic to JBoss 3.0. The port allows organizations to obtain equal or better performance, security, and developer productivity on the open source JBoss server without the licensing constraints and financial costs inherent to WebLogic. With more than two million downloads in 2002 alone, JBoss " is rapidly emerging as a standard development technology due to its ease of use and modular design," according to Marc Fleury, founder of JBoss.org and president of JBoss Group. With many companies already porting WebLogic applications over to JBoss, this enhancement greatly accelerates and simplifies the process, without the encumberance of unending licensing restrictions.

Forrester Research, a leading industry analyst organization, predicts that open source will erode licensing fees for application servers in 2003. The firm expects cost-conscious software vendors to ditch expensive licensing deals.

JBoss 3.0 fully supports the J2EE 1.3 standard. It includes JBoss/Server, the basic EJB container and JMX infrastructure; JBossMQ for JMS messaging; JBossMX for mail; JBossTX for JTA/JTS transactions; JBossSX for JAAS based security; JBossCX for JCA connectivity; and JBossCMP for CMP persistence.

The JBoss self-serve port includes the porting tool and documentation free of charge. A fee-based full-serve port features consultation from expert JBoss developers, who are available either on-site or remotely to assist enterprises in porting to the JBoss server. Both ports will be available at the end of January for download at www.jboss.org.

Where the "JBoss self-serve port includes the porting tool and documentation free of charge"? I check the site and no such tool nor documentation. I did find few notes on migrating JDBC connection definitions and JMS setups, but not the port/migration of the application. Any ideas where I can get this tool and/or documentation on porting a WebLogic application to JBoss?

Thanks,
DSR

Why does JBoss always insist on declaring "ease of use" unless things have changed quite a bit in the last while, adding a database driver to JBoss is a nightmare. BEA is point and click, JBoss is hand editing files that half the time you don't understand what you are doing.
