JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform is great when you are looking at building more or less pure Java applications and SOA micro-services that may integrate with multiple external data sources. It is less useful when you are looking to build simple SOA applications that are simple in nature since the overhead associated with deploying as well as learning BPEL.

- If the application is very large then the Payara server is suitable and in the case of a small application, we can choose Micro Payara. - Micro payara is very well suited for microservice architecture. - Fully Jakarta compliance. - Very good performance.

Red Hat
  • JBoss is open source so the cost overhead to deploy and build application is very low.

Cons
Red Hat
  • JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform is dependent and build for JEE/Java application so using a different programming paradigm will be much harder.
  • There is still a learning curve to get familiar with BPEL making it harder to get an SOA micro-service up and running compared to a fully cloud-based service

  • Issues that are logged in Payara GitHub forum need to address on time, but it keeps on postponing fixing those issues.

As mentioned before, its performance capabilities were one of the reasons we used them. It interacts with mass mail software and we see no performance impact. It handles everything pretty well and pretty fast.

Support Rating
Red Hat
Redhat support generally is great and that is true for the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform as well. Even if you do not buy support from Redhat, you can reply on the discussion board and bug fixes via the open-source JBoss without much trouble.

Oracle SOA Suite (Oracle BPM + Oracle BPEL + other components) and IBM WebSphere middleware is most costly and suited if you are already using applications and other middleware components from these vendors. Mulesoft (Salesforce Mule ESB) is best when you need deep integration with one of Salesforce's existing products. JBoss and Apache Web Server are best when you do not want to invest infant CapEx/OpEx on license fee. Apache Web Server based middleware is best for simple SOA applications.
