Websphere to JBOSS migration

I have an application that runs on Websphere 6.0. I manually created the jboss-web.xml and jboss.xml (for ejbs) to deploy the new EAR on JBOSS.
Now if we migrate to higher versions of Websphere for higher J2EE version compliance, are there any tools that can migrate the EAR to equivalent JBOSS versions?

As far as i know, there is no tool which can help you in migrating from WebSphere to JBoss.

Hi Babji Reddy,

You can try to use Eclipse (Europa or Ganymede) with WTP and JBossTools.
Then you can import the EAR into eclipse, configure it, and then export the EAR for your runtime.

JBoss offers a course (or at least they used to) on migration. It used to only be open to JBoss partners, but you might check into whether they have opened it up to a wider audience if your company is not a JBoss partner.
