4.2. Migrating Repository from Red Hat JBoss BRMS 5.3

To migrate data from Red Hat JBoss BRMS 5, do the following:

  1. Download the migration tool from Red Hat Customer Portal and unzip the downloaded ZIP archive.
  2. For production databases, copy the JDBC driver for the database that is used by the JCR repository into the libs directory of the migration tool.
  3. On the command line, move into the bin/ directory of the exploded ZIP archive.

    In a Unix environment, run:

    ./runMigration.sh -i SOURCE_PATH -o DESTINATION_PATH -r REPOSITORY_NAME

    In a Windows environment, run:

    ./runMigration.bat -i SOURCE_PATH -o DESTINATION_PATH -r REPOSITORY_NAME

    Where:

    • SOURCE_PATH is the path to the source JCR repository.
    • DESTINATION_PATH is the path to the destination Git VFS.
    • REPOSITORY_NAME is an arbitrary name for the new repository.

    The repository is then migrated to the specified location.
