    It will be able to import jar, war, ear, rar, and sar application archives and perform the following steps :

    Phase 1

    Assessment

     

    • report non-standard packaging structure
    • report non-standard deployment descriptors
    • analyse the application and report the use of any non-standard APIs

     

    Migration

     

    • Convert server configuration files to JBoss EAP format (e.g. data sources, JMS topic/queue definitions, etc.)

     

    Phase 2
