    Weblogic- JBoss

    Sudhi Newbie

      Currently working on porting an app from weblogic 6.1 to JBoss 3.0 or later (We need clustering support as well)

      Currently am rewriting Logging using Log4j for universal logging.

      Here are my goals,
      1.I would like to load properties files while starting JBoss server (not through startup MBeans)
      How do I do achieve this ?
      2. Can I package as 1 EAR with EJBS (jars, Servlets/Jsps (WAR) Application.xml) and all resources, drop it in server/default/deploy directory ?
      Will this work ....
      thanks

          What do you mean by load? What is loading them? Why not use mbeans?

          Of Course;-) modulo problems.

          In 3.2 at least there is a "foe-deployer" that is supposed to deploy weblogic apps directly by transforming the wl dd's dynamically into jboss dds. I think you have to name your package *.wlar. I don't know how sophisticated it is, but it might be worth a try.

              JBOss is far better than Weblogic and simpler with lot of awesome features. go through the documentation and scan the forums and FAQs. U will get what u want.


              Long Live JBoss

                I did try this. In our case, we were using bit of Weblogic specific stuff for Timers, Loggers etc.,
                This does not work, if in our case.
                But its a good tool to do initial POC if EJBs are developed without any app server specifics.

                Where can I get 3.2 ?
                thanks for your help.

                thanks

                  3.2 will be released in a few days I believe. You can get the current state by checking out Branch_3_2 from cvs. Look at the sourceforge cvs page for the "..." part...
