I not sure why so many people look for "wizards" when migrating from one Application Server to another. If you are using standard J2EE technologies then it should be a fairly trivial matter to migrate.

The biggest migration issue is going to be with your EJB descriptors... the vendor-specific portions will need to be rewritten for the new Application Server. All in all this shouldn't take you more than a few hours depending on how large your application is and whether or not you are using CMP. A few years back I migrated an application to WebLogic that had over 100 EJBs and the actual work took about two days... of course we spent much more time testing the application under the new server.

If you understand J2EE and you know a little bit about your target server than the migration should be a breeze. Good luck.

Hi Chris

Thank you for your response. I agree with your point of view but there are following issues I am facing,

1. I am a newbie (started using J2EE 2 months back) and it would take sometime to feel comfortable with certain things

2. We have many development things to do so I can't probably put much time in understanding those details (this may sound inappropriate but thats how it is and I know that I have to correct this as soon as I get a chance)

3. We are looking to know migration to,
- jboss
- websphere
- weblogic
<<Ideally any other widely used app server in the market>>
So you know its kind of dealing with many huge guys and I tell you- I am a very thin guy

Thanks
Maulin
