Guide to migrating from Tomcat to JBoss EAP 5

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • We are migrating an app from Tomcat to JBoss but we are having problems configuring the context.

  • In Tomcat we use the context.xml located in the Catalina/%HOST%/context.xml.default

  • I have a web application that is hosted on Standalone Tomcat 5 Server. This web application makes calls to methods of beans deployed in JBoss. I am looking to migrate the web application from Jakarta Tomcat 5.0.28 to the Tomcat Web Container 6 provided by JBoss in JBoss EAP 5.1.2. Can you suggest the primary migration steps ?

  • Is there any migration tools we can use to make migration easier ?

  • Migrating from Tomcat 6 to Jboss EAP 6.3.
  • Is there any migration path for Tomcat to Jboss EAP 6.x ?
