Magic xpa Application Platform

In our experience, the product performs really well when interfacing systems with ERP's through SQL server database tables, but we've even made some interfaces with the web service functionality included with the magic xpi integration platform. Also, we've made some SAP Business One - SAP Business One interfaces, for copying information from one company to another and even between two different ERP systems.

Payara Server

Payara Server is recommended for any type of jee and/or Spring application. Unless there are proprietary framework restrictions there is no reason for not using Payara. The pricing model for enterprise support is very nice and I would definitely recommend it. The case where it is least recommended is when you need a separate application server per service. In this case, there might be better options for this job even though I am not very sure and need to test more.

Pros

Magic xpa Application Platform

  • The UI is really simple to use, you have source/destination mapping for the items.
  • The scheduler gives you a lot of options when executing the models.
  • The error handling is usually pretty good and the errors can be corrected fast.

Payara Server

  • Small memory footprint.
  • Fully JEE compliant with an exceptional administration console.
  • Very good performance.

Cons

Magic xpa Application Platform

  • Although the scenarios may be online, the main service usually freezes and the processes can't transact any data. With a single restart of the service, the processes will be functioning again.
  • The support for more applications would be nice, even though there is a nice number of them. Most of the main applications in the market are supported.
  • The licensing for the software may be a little confusing; you can't buy individual licenses as they come in packages of four.

Payara Server

  • It should provide out of the box support as an embedded server for spring boot applications.
  • Let's Encrypt certificates should be installed through the admin console.
  • A wizard-like procedure for clustering.

As mentioned before it has an amazing configuration console. You can practically do anything from there and even update the program or install new features on the fly.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Magic xpa Application Platform

Honestly, we have only used and evaluated magic xpi/xpa platforms because of the recommendation of our SAP Business One main supplier, who has previously used the platform for their developments. So far, we have no regrets with the acquisition of the platform and we are very happy with its performance.

Payara Server

Although Payara Server originated from Oracle Glassfish, Payara does bug fixing a lot quicker and provides "versions on steroids" of the server with improvements and targeted versions. Tomcat is very fast and has a small footprint but unfortunately, it if not a fully JEE compliant server so it lacks capabilities and a proper administration console.

Return on Investment

Magic xpa Application Platform

  • The implementation time for this kind of projects has been greatly reduced.
  • Certifying an In-House resource in the Magix xpi and xpa platforms is probably the best option, considering all of the projects that can be developed in the future without the need of an external consultant.
  • The processes that have been automatized with the Magic xpi platform helped reduce human error and the time those processes took to finish.

Payara Server

  • Positive: We can host more applications on a single VM.
  • Positive: We saved time on the server configuration procedure.
  • Positive: We saved time from migration from previous installations.
