WebSphere Application Server V7.0

By this time you might have got your hand on new WebSphere Application Server namely WebSphere Application Server v7.0. There are lot of good thing about this version as compared to its predecessors. A list of which can be found easily from 7.0 InfoCenter.
Some of the feature as Solaris user you should be aware are:


  • New JDK/JVM Support

  • DTrace made easy

  • Performance Enhancement

  • New J2EE Spec Level Compliance


All the detail can be found at http://www-01.ibm.com/software/webservers/appserv/was/features/.
Some of the differences you can note from the standard Java Installation with the one that is part of WAS 7 s missing sample directory which contains lot of samples including DTrace scripts which are ready to be used. If you want to try them grab a JDK 6.X installer. Install it and copy the dir YOUR_JAVA_INSTALL_DIR/sample/dtrace and start using the script as it is. There is a README.txt file which included in the dtrace dir. All the sample scripts also has instruction about how to use them. More information about DTrace can be found here.

For migrating from 6.1 to 7.0 Migration tool would help. For 5.1 it would be difficult and also there were lot of changes happened to WebSphere. However most of the code I have found works as it is on Solaris platform and there were issues reported with xml part of the code. If in your application you are dealing with XML then you may have to modify the code otherwise it should be OK. But as part of migration you should be taking the advantages of new feature that WebSphere+JDK offers otherwise it would not provide the full benefit.
