This IBM® Redpaper™ publication positions WebSphere® Application Server Version 7.0 in today’s marketplace and discusses the most common migration methods taking WebSphere Application Server from a V5.1 and V6.x environment to V7.0.

This paper helps you to understand the significant changes with respect to migrating to WebSphere Application Server on V7.0.

This paper provides several business scenarios that can be implemented through simple customizations. Each scenario addresses a unique requirement that can be mapped with similar business scenarios, as in the following examples:

  • Migrate portions of a configuration from an existing WebSphere Application Server V5.1.x, V6.0.x, or V6.1x to V7.0.
  • Migrate existing configurations and applications to WebSphere Application Server V7.0 by copy and coexistence.
  • Migrate a large network deployment configuration with a large number of applications.

This paper has been developed for an experienced WebSphere Application Server design, development, and software engineering audience.
