Oracle WebLogic

I see Oracle WebLogic Application Server being appropriate when an application needs several different data sources and messaging providers configured and accessible, with a configured level of control of resources (connection pools) and timeouts. It is also advisable to create distributed resources that you can configure as always active to provide more processing power, or as failover for situations of availability in case of disaster recovery, for example.An application where the number of required resources configured is very small and almost non-changeable, and no scalability is required, some other options exist in the market with less cost.

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

Oracle WebLogic

  • Built-in diagnostic modules that can be easily activated for a server instance.
  • Ease of creating and maintaining multiple domains for different applications.
  • Ability to create virtual hosts and targets to which WebLogic Server instances or clusters respond.
  • Powerful clustering framework to balance the load on the server instances.

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

Oracle WebLogic

  • The Admin UI should be further simplified, the UI design was not too user-friendly— too many options and clicks required, difficult for the new beginners to figure out what they are looking for.
  • The admin server becomes the single failure point, although Oracle suggested some workarounds by setting VIP and VHost, it was not quite easy and straight forward.
  • Domain replication is hard, requiring a lot of knowledge and scripts efforts.
  • Admin will hang if the node manager communication encounters some issues for one or some nodes in the domain/cluster.
  • Not able to kill/terminate the stuck thread, the only way is to restart the managed server (JVM)
  • License cost is too high, for small businesses.

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

I would have given it a 10 but sometimes the hogging threads become a issue and needs server bounce. Except that, we are very pleased with the product.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle WebLogic

Oracle WebLogic Application Server is a leading server side container. It is far superior than IBM's WebSphere application server, JBOSS or Tomcat server. The easiness of using Oracle's weblogic application server is much user friendly and also it has great support and user base globally. I would rate WebLogic to be #1 application server & highly recommend.

Red Hat JBoss EAP

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

Oracle WebLogic

  • In our business, availability is a critical issue, because the services must be running 24/7. Since we provide services in countries whose time zones are different, a pause in that service implies high monetary losses.
  • We can not afford for operations so it is worth investing in an engine that gives us all the stability and security you need, so each dollar is worth it.
  • The licensing of WebLogic servers in their most complete editions is not accessible for all types of companies, but in that case we visualize it as an investment, rather than as a cost.

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.
