Apache Tomcat

I found Tomcat to be ideal for testing out Java EE applications on the localhost environment. It has very easy integration with leading IDEs like Eclipse and Netbeans. Tomcat can be improved for handling JNDI connections and database connection pooling.

Oracle WebLogic

It is ideal for productive scenarios where a robust server is needed, capable of supporting high volumes of transactions and concurrent users. As long as the company has the economic capacity for investment.

Cons

  • The UI is limited and very basic.

  • Logging produces too much data and hard to find what caused a problem.

  • There needs to be a graphical tool to develop certain scripts used for maintenance of the environment. It may get tedious to debug the scripts provided by Oracle.
  • UI can become even more intuitive & easy on the eyes.

Tomcat doesn't have a built-in watchdog that ensures restart upon failure, so you have to provide it externally. A very good solution is java service wrapper. The community edition is able to restart Tomcat upon out of memories exceptions.

Return on Investment

  • The positive impact is its universal support. It's easy to spin up a server and then deploy it to AWS.
  • The negative impact is the speed at which development occurs. Relative to a back end built on a scripting language, development time is much slower.
  • Overall, it's allowed us to scale the web site as the company grows.

  • Administration and Configuration maintenance can be done through a UI and hence might ease the administrator’s task thus reduces the amount of time spent on learning how to use the program itself.
  • Performance - much faster and able to get work done faster.
