Azure App Service

Azure App Service is great if you're starting a new web project and need an infrastructure that is fast, stable, secure, and scalable. The service has a very high up-time, and it supports a variety of languages and technologies (though it really shines with the .NET stack - C#, ASP.NET, Entity Framework, etc.). If you're thinking about porting an existing app over, it may wind up being expensive as far as resources go if the software isn't properly optimized to utilize cloud resources efficiently, so that's something to keep in mind.

Pros

Azure App Service

  • Single source for ALL of our apps.
  • Revision control is easy with the info we embed into the apps.
Richard Peterson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Java SE

  • Plenty support built into the tool and IDE like Maven, Ant, Eclipse, IntelliJ.
  • Strong object-orientation language and clear project structure.
  • Wrapper underlines hardware and memory management so the developers can focus on business and implementation.
  • It offers a huge library and framework support from third-parties and the community.

Cons

Azure App Service

  • Abstraction of computing resources like Heroku does with dynos.
  • Azure Portal overall is pretty bloated and that affects managing Azure App Service applications.

Oracle Java SE

  • No ability to automatically clean up resources such as via destructors in C++. End users must explicitly invoke a method (e.g. close, dispose) to ensure resources are freed in a timely manner.
  • Garbage collection can introduce pauses at runtime (although this is improving)
  • Memory leaks are sometimes difficult to find due to automatic garbage collection

The language is fluent and has good support from a number of open source and commercial IDEs. Language features are added every 6 months, although long-term service releases are only available every 3 years. It would be nice if some of the older APIs were depreciated with more pressure to move to the new replacement APIs (e.g. File vs. Path), but transitions to new features are generally well implemented.

Java is such a mature product at this point that there is little support from the vendor that is needed. Various sources on the internet, and especially StackOverflow, provide a wealth of knowledge and advice. Areas that may benefit from support is when dealing with complex multithreading issues and security libraries.

Alternatives Considered

Azure App Service

After exhaustive testing, we settled on Azure App Service because we felt they offered the best solutions in the price range we willing to pay for. It also was a natural extension of our website hosting package on Azure, and it is nice to be organized in one place.

Oracle Java SE

We had to stick with Java SE due to some of our other services being already written in Java. For the past couple months, we have been experimenting with Python and comparing its level of security and performance. From our experience, Python has fewer security capabilities, but has a much faster performance compared to Java.

Return on Investment

Azure App Service

  • Azure App Service has allowed us to quickly deploy high-budget projects very quickly, netting us a healthy profit vs the cost to develop. (We make, on average, about 10x what it costs to get up and running per project thanks to how easy it is to implement a skeleton framework.)
  • Costs are low to run the services thanks to the scaling functionality that comes with Azure App Service. We can utilize less resources during slow times and save hundreds of dollars per month vs costs of traditional servers.
Drew Harrison | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Java SE

  • We're able to deploy new instances of our application on new hardware setups without any hiccups or additional tweaks thanks to the use of the Java VM.
  • Many colleagues are familiar with Java, either from school, or previous employment since it's so widely used. They're able to get up to speed and being productive on our team very quickly.
