Frank was born in Ireland and now lives in the USA. His initial training was in Computer Science from Trinity College, Dublin (so they're really to blame for this). He also has a Ph.D. in Computational Neuroscience and after realizing that computers were still as dumb as a bag of hammers realized that he had better go earn some money and stop fooling around. Right now he likes to think he is a part-manager, part-developer, part-architect developing applications for a major telecommunications firm because "code monkey" just doesn't sound as good.

Migrating from JBoss 4 to JBoss 5

  • submit to reddit

I have been using JBoss 4.2.3 for over a year right now and really like it (although the clustering / JMS stuff seems WAY overcomplicated - and needing 80 config files - not fun!). But anyway it is time to upgrade to JBoss 5 and the path has been marred by many stops and starts and has been surprisingly difficult.

In any event I found the following links to be a life saver and thought I would share them

The real kickers have to be

1) Increased adherence to the Java spec that cause WARs / JARs to no longer deploy
2) Changed location of XML files
3) Changed XML filenames
4) Changed XML file contents

Man they don't make it easy do they?

Thanks for the links and tips! I'll be looking to do this for a client shortly and although I can ask a few Red Hat/Jboss friends to help out, it's nice to be able to start from a solid base.
