    migrate IIS to J2ee based web server, then migrate .net arch

    david su Newbie

      Dear Sir/Madam:

      Our company has the software product based on the .net
      framework with the IIS middle ware. because of the
      requirement of our current market, we need to migrate
      the whole architecture to J2ee based one.

      we plan to start with changing the presentation layer
      IIS to j2ee based one. the following are the list of
      questions we need to figure out urgently. it will be
      very appreciated if you can help on these.

      1. do you think the tomcat web server a good option
      for us or the other ones?

      2. what should be the approach we should apply to
      replace the IIS only at this stage?

      3. how can we replace IIS with tomcat on windows and
      keep all the existing binaries?

      4. if the tomcat is a good option, then after
      installing the tomcat, does the apache need to be
      installed as well? if it is, why?

      5. what is the next step for us to migrate the
      architecture to j2ee based one after replace IIS with
      tomcat?

      6. do you recommend weblogic or websphere for us at
      this stage? why?

      7. we have one staff knows only the .net architecture
      and don't know j2ee one, the other one knows only some
      of the j2ee architecture and don't know .net one. we
      want these two staff to work together to figure out a
      way to migrate from .net to j2ee in a very tight time
      frame. what can you suggest us to achieve this? what
      documentation or books we need to do this without
      recruiting additional resource?

      8. if we change the whole .net to j2ee based, what
      else we need to install, except of the tomcat? for the
      whole migration, how can we map the
      applications/components from .net to j2ee for this
      migration, like, asp.net(.net) to jsp(j2ee), iis(.net)
      to tomcat(j2ee), (sql server(.net) to oracle(j2ee)
      etc..

      it will be very appreciated if you can help on the
      above as soon as you can.

      Thanks and regards!
      David
