I'm researching what it is going to take to move some of our JSF applications off of Websphere and onto JBoss.

Does anyone have any pointers or suggestions on what to look for?

Or maybe a suggestion on where to look for how to do this?

Thanks,

It should be a lot easier than going the other way. IBM is a late adopter when it comes to things like JSF features. I had a lot of trouble going from Tomcat to WebSphere on that account.

I've noticed a few differences, most notably the non Websphere doesn't seem to use the scriptcollector or the onPageLoadBegin function.

Is this true or did I just miss something?

Any other gotcha's?

One issue is whether you are using any of the IBM-specific components. If so, you'll need to find comparable functionality with another component library such as RichFaces. But Tim is right...moving ONTO WAS is a real pain in the neck for a number of reasons, a lot of which have to do with class loaders. You can just import your existing project into a new workspace (if you're using an Eclipse-based IDE...if not, whatever is comparable in NetBeans or IntelliJ), delete the IBM-specific configuration files in WEB-INF, and point at the appropriate libraries for your classpath. Should be relatively painless
