In this white paper, the authors explore the reasons for migrating from WebLogic to Tomcat, considerations for making the decision, and techniques to be followed for a successful migration. Note that when the authors talk about Java EE applications, they are including applications, application components, and SOA service instances, each of which is an "Application," even when the user is another service or application, rather than a human. When the authors are discussing "Migration," they are focusing on those applications that would transition from WebLogic to Tomcat without major re-architecture or re-write. While it is theoretically possible to move any application from WebLogic to Tomcat, those involving sophisticated transactional would require so much development efforts.
