WebSphere Application Server - Binary Scanner

From this: -


With the latest release of the binary scanner, two new enhancements are available that can help application developers and administrators outside the scope of a migration. Have you developed a new application for Liberty or moved one over from another application server and are wondering what features you need to configure in the server.xml file? Or maybe you are supporting a legacy application that has grown over time and you have no idea what is in it and what problems are lurking? Intrigued? Keep reading to see how the binary scanner can help you.

and this: -


The Migration Toolkit for Application Binaries provides a command line tool that quickly evaluates application binaries for rapid deployment on newer versions of WebSphere Application Server traditional or Liberty.

so I've tried it on some my sample applications: -

java -jar binaryAppScanner.jar ~/Downloads/DefaultApplication/DefaultWebApplication.war 

Scanning files.......................
The report was saved to the following file: /Users/davidhay/Downloads/wamt/DefaultWebApplication.war_TechnologyReport.html


java -jar binaryAppScanner.jar ~/Downloads/ferret-1.2.war 

Scanning files..........................
The report was saved to the following file: /Users/davidhay/Downloads/wamt/ferret-1.2.war_TechnologyReport.html



java -jar binaryAppScanner.jar ~/Desktop/SuperSnoopProj.ear 

Scanning files......
The report was saved to the following file: /Users/davidhay/Downloads/wamt/SuperSnoopProj.ear_TechnologyReport.html


So that's me OK then …

For the record, I've "installed" the Binary Scanner JAR on my Mac, running macOS Sierra, and am using Java 8

java -version

java version "1.8.0_121"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_121-b13)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.121-b13, mixed mode)
