Subject Move Tomcat, MySQL and jre1.6.0 from Windows XP to Linux/W2008
Date Mon, 21 Sep 2009 19:48:49 GMT

We want to move a web site to a Dell PowerEdge T610 Server from a workstation
running Windows XP Pro Sp3 with Tomcat 5.5.20, MySQL 5.4.20, and jre1.6.0.

I have installed four(4) x86_64 evaluation edition operating systems on the
Dell PE T610 to test the website:  Windows 2008 Server Std Ed with Hyper-V,
Red Hat Enterprise Server 5.4 (may need to use 5.2), SUSE Linux Enterprise
Server 11, and openSUSE 11.1. I have installed XEN on Red Hat and may do the
same with the SUSE's.

In a clutch, we will install XP Pro Sp3 as a guest virtual machine. Also, it
may be easier to test the other OS's as guests to avoid reinstallation of
the host OS during botched testing. I am not sure if I can install more than
one Linux Enterprise Server evaluation, so I may be limited to openSUSE for

Obviously, there are a lot of variables to contend with that I may think of,
and many more I wouldn't think of. I am hoping someone may have had
experience with such a migration and be able to advise which solution is
practical and or impractical. If this had already been discussed in this
forum, please point me to those posts. Also, if this is not the best place
for me to post this question, where would it be more appropriate?
