While it has been commonplace (and well documented) for IT organizations to migrate Java EE applications initially developed on Apache Tomcat upward to commercial Java application servers, such as Oracle’s WebLogic, in recent years the trend has been reversing. There are a number of compelling reasons for creating new web applications using today’s deployment architectures on Tomcat instead of WebLogic, but perhaps even more interesting is the trend to migrate existing Java EE applications from WebLogic to Tomcat.
MuleSoft has released a whitepaper that explore the reasons for migrating from WebLogic to Tomcat, considerations for making the decision, and techniques to be followed for a successful migration.
The paper is written by Andy Van Abs, founder of Enterprise Software Trends, and Jason Brittain, author of Tomcat: the Definitive Guide.
