It's my pleasure to announce that we've released the first milestone of Spring Migration Analyzer (SMA), a command-line utility that analyzes enterprise Java applications and produces a report describing the application and how it can be migrated to Spring.
When it comes to considering the migration of an existing application to Spring, it's typically the deployment flexibility that motivates the move as it can significantly reduce the application's operating costs.
With JAVA_HOME set, you can then run the migration-analysis script to analyze an application:
This will produce an HTML report in a directory named my-app.ear in the current working directory. The report describes the application and offers guidance on migrating it to Spring.
In addition to the migration guidance, the report provides details of things like API usage, EJBs and deployment descriptors that need to be taken into consideration when migrating the application.
