This IBM Redbooks publication publication can help you plan and perform the migration of your J2EE applications that are developed for WebSphere Application Server Community Edition V1.1.0.1, enabling them to run on WebSphere Application Server V6.1 - Network Deployment. It includes migration strategy considerations for developing portable applications as well as working migration examples. This book discusses some of the most common migration issues that you might encounter when migrating from J2EE platforms to WebSphere Application Server V6.1.

In this book, we use two sample applications to demonstrate how to migrate your J2EE applications. We migrate each application using a different approach and different development tools. In one migration, we use Rational Application Developer V7.0 and, in the other, we use the Application Server Toolkit, which comes with WebSphere Application Server V6.1 - Base. We also describe step-by-step how we built and configured our environment for these migration examples.

The audience for this book includes administrators and developers that seek a process and instructions for migrating from WebSphere Application Server Community Edition to the WebSphere Application Server Basic and Network Deployment editions.
