Managing a MongoDB deployment? Take a load off and live migrate to MongoDB Atlas, the official automated service, with little to no downtime.

I have been using JBoss 4.2.3 for over a year right now and really like it (although the clustering / JMS stuff seems WAY overcomplicated - and needing 80 config files - not fun!). But anyway it is time to upgrade to JBoss 5 and the path has been marred by many stops and starts and has been surprisingly difficult.

In any event I found the following links to be a life saver and thought I would share them

The real kickers have to be

1) Increased adherence to the Java spec that cause WARs / JARs to no longer deploy
2) Changed location of XML files
3) Changed XML filenames
4) Changed XML file contents

Man they don't make it easy do they?

MongoDB Atlas is the easiest way to run the fastest-growing database for modern applications — no installation, setup, or configuration required. Easily live migrate an existing workload or start with 512MB of storage for free.
