Red Hat
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.

-Pivotal tc Server is best used as web application server on a virtual machine for middleware purposes -I feel it is less appropriate to be used with utilizing data that does not need to be secure

Pros
Red Hat
  • JBoss is open source so the cost overhead to deploy and build application is very low.
  • JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform and its parent Redhat are reputed and well adapted in the industry so it is easy to find best practices documentation for complex deployments of JBoss middleware.

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

VMware
  • User management and administration access account setup has room for improvement and can be more user friendly and clearly list how many admin accounts we can setup
  • password complexity for user accounts need to be updated
  • although all logs list all errors some of the tomcat errors are not time stamped

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.
