.NET

The .NET framework is useful when developing applications that run in real time environments. It produces very efficient and well controlled binaries that perform well. With the introduction of Xamarin and other tools, the .NET framework is also useful at providing cross platform support, which can reduce development times and provide a better source code management situation. However, .NET is not the ideal choice for small businesses or independent developers who may not want to deal with licensing concerns.

Red Hat JBoss EAP

JBoss EAP is subscription based/open source platform. It's very reliable and great for deploying high transaction Java based enterprise applications. It integrates well with third party components like mod_cluster and supports popular Java EE web-based frameworks such as Spring, Angular JS, jQuery Mobile, and Google Web Toolkit.

Pros

.NET

  • Comes bundled with Visual Studio, which is one of the best and lightest IDEs in the market.
  • Easy to learn, with a lot of online resources and open source codes to support.
  • Heavily supported by Microsoft, and integrates well with Windows especially with network user authentication.
  • Supports multiple languages and allows for easy cross-projects integration.

Red Hat JBoss EAP

  • MOD_CLUSTER integration. JBoss EAP integrates pretty well with mod_cluster. This is an intelligent load balancer especially useful in highly clustered environments.
  • Supports enterprise-grade features such as high availability clustering, distributed caching, messaging etc.
  • Supports deployment in on-premise, virtual and hybrid cloud environments.

Cons

.NET

  • We've found that depending on the type of application that you're developing, resource usage can be high at times. This is something that we've needed to keep in mind especially during peak usage of our applications.
  • We've found that dependency management can be an issue at times. This has messed up our builds once in a while.
  • Better and real-world online examples of new methods and classes would be beneficial.

Red Hat JBoss EAP

  • Jboss CLI is a great tool but we had trouble using it to get values that are displayed on Jboss GUI. It also has limitations parsing the applications.xml files and we had to use a mix of jboss-cli and linux bash commands to automate certain application administrative tasks.
  • JBoss doesn't really provides performance tuning recommendations. It would have been nice if it could learn from the current demand vs current settings for things like connection pool, server configurations, garbage collection etc.

We are planning to migrate away from Jboss to Tomcat as Jboss has shown not interest in supporting OSGi which is heavily used at our shop

The first thing that comes in mind is the IDE is a software suite that provides must-have tools for a developer to build and test software applications. The default IDE for .NET applications is Microsoft Visual Studio, which is a sophisticated tool to build apps. Intellisense is a favorite for developers to write code easily without remembering all the functions at the time of development. It supports multiple programming languages - C#, VB, F#, C++ based on individual skill sets.

JBoss overall is easy to use. The installation and deployment of applications are quick. Documentations and support are also readily available.

Usually, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is good at performance and well suited for high traffic Java EE-based applications, but we have faced hard times performance tuning it for our specific needs. The product would be nicer if they would add a performance diagnostic and recommendations feature to it.

You don't often need to reach out to Microsoft for .NET support. If you do, there are forums and websites that have active Microsoft support folks where you can provide feedback or get help. Microsoft support in general is quite good as well, but not cheap. The best support is from the community like StackOverflow.

Alternatives Considered

.NET

We evaluated Java as a platform for custom development. There were many advantages to using Java like - Java is portable, so you can choose whatever operating system you need to build your app or website. Object-relational support is better, and Java calls the database less often, keeping everything in domain objects.But possible security breaches are the main concern when it comes to Java, because such issues occur more often in platform-agnostic solutions. On top of that, Scala functions don’t work well with Groovy, requiring advanced software developing skills. Also, some developers claim that Java can be slower than other languages because of its multi-platform nature.

We selected JBoss because of compatibility with EJB's. We currently are trying to reduce our footprint and will highly consider using Tomcat.

Return on Investment

.NET

  • I have not been required to pay for using .NET, so it is not possible to calculate a return on investment.
  • The time saved by creating custom applications to help me with my various daily tasks has been far greater than the time spent creating the applications.

Red Hat JBoss EAP

  • Jboss EAP is easy to deploy and configure. This lead to lower cost and faster delivery.
  • Even though we have large number of machines running JBoss, we have only two Jboss Administrators. It doesn't requires too much administration and maintenance on daily basis and reduces number of administrators required for large implementations.
