JBoss just announced the JBoss Migration Assistance program, of which we’re a founding partner. The primary goal of the project is to provide a collection of open source tools and resources that will enable enterprises to more easily migrate from closed source, proprietary application servers to open source JBoss platforms. We’re happy to bring our experience with application and portal migration to this new JBoss.org project.
As Matt Asay points out, this is a community effort that will combine Red Hat’s efforts with that of its most experienced JBoss system integrators, as no one tool or process can cover the gamut of app server/portal/content migration. This type of communtiy effort represents the essence of collaborative open source development.
