Apache Web Server

Apache is appropriate for every scenario that I can think of, including use on Windows server.

Oracle WebLogic

I see Oracle WebLogic Application Server being appropriate when an application needs several different data sources and messaging providers configured and accessible, with a configured level of control of resources (connection pools) and timeouts. It is also advisable to create distributed resources that you can configure as always active to provide more processing power, or as failover for situations of availability in case of disaster recovery, for example.An application where the number of required resources configured is very small and almost non-changeable, and no scalability is required, some other options exist in the market with less cost.

Pros

  • Stability - the apache web server is extremely stable, with many months or even years in-between crashes or reboots
  • Documentation - Apache is the #1 web server in the world, so there is a huge amount of documentation for support
  • Compatibility - Apache is compatible with every technology I have come across
  • Powerful - Apache can do a lot with a little, with hardware requirements that are very easy to achieve for low cost

  • The brand relation between Java and WebLogic Application Server usually provides a quicker access to programming features and their availability for the applications deployed.
  • The access to centralized configuration both from console and command line WLST eases the implementation of changes major or not in an organized and expedite way.
  • The maturity of the product is also visible in the available tools provided by the product itself, for both monitoring of resources and alerting for availability and thresholds

Cons

  • I think it could use a web UI to configure it
  • It could allow PHP to override configuration without having to modify it
  • I've never seen statistics for it so I assume there is not much built in

  • It could simplify the installation process for non-productive environments.

Alternatives Considered

I have loved Apache and the brief experience I had with IIS wasn't as good. Nginx I have heard good things and though we use it heavily for our servers now without problems, I haven't configured it myself.

Performance is better with heavy workloads.

Return on Investment

  • Apache helps things run smoothly, rarely needing a reboot
  • Gives helpful error messages to solve problems easy
  • Occasionally we have had to modify file upload size, request timeout, and parameter size which is annoying when it has to be done on a lot of servers or cannot be done through code

  • We are able to support all of our applications using WebLogic Application Server. It's been a reliable journey until now.
  • It has simplified the management of new/redundant users on an environment.
