Migrate Oracle WebLogic Server Configuration Files and Descriptors to the Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform Equivalent

Updated -

Summary

Oracle WebLogic Server configuration files are fairly complex and it can be difficult to map them to the Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 equivalents, but the following table can be used as a guideline.

Map Configuration and Descriptor Files


WebLogic Descriptor File JBoss Equivalent Descriptor File Description

ejb-jar.xml

weblogic-ejb-jar.xml

weblogic-cmp-rdbms-jar.xml

jboss-ejb3.xml, standalone.xml, or domain.xml

These WebLogic deployment descriptor files describe the EJB elements that are unique to WebLogic Server.

Descriptor elements that map to elements in the jboss-ejb3.xml file are described here: Migrate the WebLogic weblogic-ejb-jar.xml Deployment Descriptor to Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6. Additional elements map to the ejb3 subsystem in the standalone.xml or domain.xml JBoss server configuration files. For more information about the JBoss server configuration files, see the chapter entitled Enterprise JavaBeans in the Administration and Configuration Guide for Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.

weblogic.xml

standalone.xml or domain.xml

This WebLogic deployment descriptor file is used to support value-added features that are not included in the standard specifications for web applications.

While there is no direct mapping of these descriptor elements, many of these features may be configured in the JBoss server configuration files. For information about how to migrate the weblogic.xml file, see Migrate the Oracle WebLogic Server weblogic.xml Descriptor File Configurations to JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6. For more information on how to configure the JBoss server, see the Administration and Configuration Guide for JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.

*-jdbc.xml

standalone.xml or domain.xml

In WebLogic, JDBC datasources are configured in separate descriptor files using the standard naming suffix *-jdbc.xml.

In JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6, this information is specified in the
datasources subsystem of the server configuration file. For more information on how to configure JDBC datasources, see the chapter entitled Datasource Management in the Administration and Configuration Guide for JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.
