Migrating JBoss AS 5 project to JBoss AS 7

I'm attempting to migrate a fairly large project from JBoss AS5 to AS7. The project is built with ant, the build process is pretty complex. I'm running into a lot of problems.

The first thing I did was read through the AS7 documentation - https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/AS7/, focusing on 'How do I migrate my application from AS5 or AS6 to AS7?' https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/AS7/How+do+I+migrate+my+application+from+AS5+or+AS6+to+AS7

I managed to set up a new data source and import my project into AS7. When I try to build the project I'm getting a lot of class loading errors, which I expected.

Our build.xml sets 'build.classpath' for use during the 'compile' stage of the build process

does AS7 not honor these ant directives?

I tried to solve this by creating an *ear/meta-inf/MANIFEST.MF file that references the class path

This doesn't seem to work - I am still getting the package javax.jms does not exist errors.

I'm going by the class loading procedures documented in the AS7 manual - what am I doing wrong?

Is it because i'm using ant? Should I switch to maven? My project and build are fairly complex, and I'm not sure if it will be worth going down that route if there's a simple solution to fix these errors with ant in AS7.

Any advice appreciated - thanks!
