Hi,

Iam trying to migrate my workspace from WSAD 5.1 to RAD 7.I did a google search and found that I need to export the enterprise applications in wsad 5.1 to .PIF file and then import the .PIF file in RAD.I do not have much info on .PIF file and I could not find any task that exports the workspace to .PIF in WSAD 5.1

Could you pls let me know how to migrate the workspace from WSAD 5.1 to RAD 7.

Thanks in Advance

Regards
Shiv

Basically, you just need to open your WSAD 5.1.2 workspace in RAD 7, and the transformation will to some extent happen automatically. Alternatively you can export your workspace as a project interchange.

You will most likely encounter some problems with your project whilst migrating, so there is a forum dedicated to this here: dW

Another useful resource, where you can read more about installation and migration can be found here.

I haven't heard of a .pif file before. You sure they didn't think of a project interchange file, which comes out as zip-file when you export a project?

Hi,

By .PIF I meant Project Interchange.Iam really sorry to put a wrong question.Maybe Iam confused or dont have much info as I have just started with the migration.

You had mentioned in your first reply that the workspace can be exported as a project interchange.How can I do that in WSAD 5.1

Thanks and Regards

File - Export - Project interchange

Then you just do the same in RAD, except it'll be an import.

Hi, I am moving my app from WAS 5.1 to WAS 6.1 and I am having problem with FormLoginServlet as below.
I have noticed that securityimpl.jar is not there in 6.1 runtimes where as it is there in 5.1 runtimes.

My question is this intentional in 6.1 or will it work if I just copy the jar from 5.1 to 6.1 runtimes.

[Servlet Error]-[com.ibm.ws.security.web.FormLoginServlet]: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.ibm.ws.security.web.FormLoginServlet
