In this blog, I look at whats happening to GlassFish as a result of Oracle purchasing Sun Micro systems. The direction given by Oracle so far regarding GlassFish is not very encouraging for users, and they would be wise to put in place plans to migrate to Apache Tomcat.

Tomcat and Glassfish are different level products - simple Servlet Container and full-stack J2EE 6.0 Server. Don't know how to migrate my J2EE application from Glassfish to Tomcat. Probably better to discuss migration to JBossAS or Geronimo - but defenetly not Tomcat

akakunin, several organizations have already moved from a Java EE app server to Tomcat. You can check out this white paper from my colleagues on how to migrate from WebLogic to Tomcat: ( requires registration )

Not all applications would be candidates for migration, but majority of web applications are.

@Ryan, I'm not sure how this posting is a sales pitch... it's all about migrating to Apache Tomcat, which is FOSS. Sure, MuleSoft offers Tomcat Support, but so did SUN offer support for Glassfish. (Remains to be seen what Oracle does with it, of course).

So GlassFish is the same as Tomcat? This is not an Oracle Certified Business Component Developer!
