Though the Java platform does, to a large extent, live up to the promise of WORA (Write Once Run Anywhere), the effort to take an application out of a stable operational environment into new, untested territory is not trivial. The strategy and planning for such initiatives is very complex and requires planning in advance. Enterprise applications, once deployed, have a multitude of dependencies, besides the dependency on Java APIs. The drivers for migration can include version upgrades, corporate agenda, maintenance costs, industry alliances, rapid upgrades to the J2EE platform APIs, etc. A planned migration ensures a successful implementation while minimizing the impact.
In this session, we will describe a strategy to address the migration related to some of the major application servers, including IBM WebSphere, BEA WebLogic, Oracle Application Server, Sun One, and JBoss. Real world examples of how this strategy has been applied in the industry will be provided. Frameworks for planning and executing the migration, including effort and time estimation will be presented. A detailed case study will be covered to illustrate to the audience how the best practices and frameworks presented in this session have been applied for successful migration planning and execution.
