Simplifying Large-scale, Middleware Migrations with JBoss Cake

Brad Davis — Program Manager, Red Hat

As more enterprises adopt open source software, JBoss Cake is there to make the transition easier for them. Cake, a JBoss Community project, was created in 2011 with the mission of reducing the time, cost, and risk of migrations for enterprises with existing proprietary Java EE investments.

In this session, the project’s creator, Brad Davis, will discuss utilizing Cake to assist with Oracle WebLogic and IBM WebSphere to Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform migrations. Brad will discuss:

  • Migration planning tools
  • How to leverage Cake throughout the IT migration process
  • Cake’s capabilities within Java EE migrations
  • Techniques for making large-scale Java platform migrations successful
  • Cake’s feature roadmap. It will also include a live demonstration of JBoss Cake.
