Hi gautambhatia,

I cannot give you a fixed step to follow but I can tell you what you have to consider while you are migrating.

1.WebLogic is J2EE container which compose of Web and EJB container while Tomcat is only Web container. So make sure that you are migrating only Web application.
2.What is your application framework? Are you using Weblogic framework? If so, you have a big thing to consider because you cannot move all library files from weblogic to Tomcat. It's not easy.
3.Please check weblogic.xml in WEB-INF which is deployment descriptor that specific to Weblogic. This file you have to check configuration one by one and try to set it in Tomcat.

I suggested you to try to deploy to Tomcat and see what happen. Then, try to fix it case by case.

Hope this help.

Hi,
Thanks for answering.
My application is a simple struts based app with no EJB's.  But I am using JNDI for DS look up.
Yes I agree with you on looking for weblogic.xml and transfering it to tomcat web.xml.

Do I need to make any changes in struts-cofig.xml ?

Hi,

No. You can use the existing struts-config.xml.
Let's see what will happen after you deploy.
