Chapter 3. Supported configurations

3.1. Supported migration paths

The Migration Toolkit for Applications (MTA) supports migrations from third-party enterprise application servers, such as Oracle WebLogic Server, to JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) and upgrades to the latest release of JBoss EAP.

MTA provides a comprehensive set of rules to assess the suitability of your applications for containerization and deployment on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (RHOCP). You can run an MTA analysis to assess your applications' suitability for migration to multiple target platforms.

The following table describes the most common supported migration paths.

3.2. System requirements

3.2.1. Software

  • OpenJDK 1.8, OpenJDK 11, Oracle JDK 1.8, Oracle JDK 11
  • MTA is tested on Linux, Windows, and macOS. Other operating systems with Java 8+ support should work equally well.

3.2.2. Hardware

The following memory and disk space requirements are the minimum needed to run MTA. If your application is very large or you need to evaluate multiple applications, you may want to increase these values to improve performance.

For tips on how to optimize performance, see the Optimizing MTA performance section of the MTA CLI Guide.

  • A minimum of 4 GB RAM. For better performance, a quad-core processor with 8 GB RAM is recommended. This allows 3 - 4 GB RAM for use by the JVM.
  • A minimum of 4 GB of free disk space. A fast disk, especially a solid-state drive (SSD), should improve performance.
