Howdy everyone,

I'm a former C# developer who just started a job learning to be a Java developer. Why? I like to eat, and so does my family.

I have been brought in to support a legacy application that is now running on struts 1 in oc4j. My initial assignment is to upgrade this struts 1 application to struts 2, and at the same time switch from oc4j to WebLogic 10.3.6. My files are running under Tortoise SVN.

Being new to everything about Java development, I am finding it difficult to find easy to understand documentation to step me through the process. I've been reading Struts 2 in Action, but it seems to assume a level of knowledge I do not yet have.

I created a brand new Java Enterprise Application project in Eclipse (Mars). Inside of that I created an EJB project and a Dynamic Web project. I also created a user library with the Struts 2 jar files and added it to the Java Build Path and Deployment Assembly in the Web Project. Now I'm sitting with two new empty projects and not sure how to bring the files over from the existing struts 1 application.

What would be the best way to make sure I get all the files I need from the existing application (it also contains an EJB and Web Project) into my new blank projects I just created in Eclipse on WebLogic server??

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

Here you have two important tasks:

1. migrate from Struts 1 to Struts 2

I am not sure that using Eclipse with EAR/WAR Dynamic facets will help.
However, there is documentation about it: https://struts.apache.org/docs/migration-guide.html


2. migrate from OC4J to WLS 10.3.6

This can be handled by: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/11gr1-jee-upgrade-129652.pdf

I have migrated application from oc4j and always there are issues.
That paper helps a lot, and also there is a tool that creates a report about things: Oracle WebLogic SmartUpgrade

Looking for the smartupgrade.jws zip files as its no longer on technet.

Ok that it's not supported... just need to use the tool for a small app.

If you can provide, send me an email at joel.saunders@oatcinc.com

Thanks...

Joel
