Migration of applications that use JAX-RS, JSON-RPC, or proxying


Migrate an application that uses JAX-RS hosted on WAS

No change is required to continue to use the WebSphere Security Model. Use existing REST services from the app.

To integrate security with IBM Worklight, proxy existing REST services that use JSON-RPC through an HTTP adapter.

Services are hosted in a separate EAR or WAR file from the Worklight Application. There may be restrictions on host name and port because the services and application are in the same sandbox domain.
