    migrating from weblogic

    han Newbie

      Hi there:

      We've been asked to investigate what it would take to migrate our application from weblogic to jboss. We have some weblogic specific code in our such as snmp, scheduler, security, etc. We were wondering if there is an equivalent feature set in jboss. Specifically:

      Is this the right forum to ask these questions?

      Does jboss have a scheduler that we can use? Does it support clustering (at least fail-over?)

      Weblogic comes with advantnet snmp manager. Does jboss have a similar api? Is there a recommended third party snmp manager?

      Is there a pointer to authenication/authorization methods that jboss supports? Is there somthing like FileRealm?

      Does jboss fully support jta & jts?

      Is there a clusterable (at least with fail-over) jms?

      Does jboss support local interfaces?

      Does jboss have database connection pool refresh/reconnection?

      Is there support for message driven beans?

      Does jboss allow static classes (even though not kosher in j2ee). We are spawing some threads to listen to certain sockets at initialization.

      Thank you very much for your time.

          Too many questions. :-)
          I'll keep my answers short, if you want more
          detailed answers show me you have made an
          effort to do your own research.

          Yes and Yes.

          This link suggests adventnet works with jboss3.x

          JBoss uses JAAS.

          No, tyrex is available as a distributed
          transaction manager, but it is not supported AFAIK.

          No.

          Yes.

          Not sure what this means. If you mean
          automatic failover of database connections then no.

          Yes.

          Yes, but MBeans are better for this kind of work.
