Pros

  • 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

  • Out of the box performance tuning. I have often felt the need to tune things like connection pool, server configuration, garbage collection for performance. It would be nice if JBoss were able to set some of these out of the box and require administrators to just turn on/off the feature.
  • Jboss-cli is a good command line utility but is still a little complex to learn. It also has a limitations query JBoss command line for certain values that you can see on the JBoss GUI interface.

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

It's quite easy to learn and use. We have transitioned our Red Hat JBoss EAP set up to client team. They had no technical background of managing it but were quick to learn the product.

Performance

Based on 2 answers
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

JBoss does practically everything Apache Tomcat and Weblogic does in terms of our requirements, but JBoss is more suited for larger enterprise J2EE apps compared to Tomcat. Boot time is not as quick as Tomcat, but still relatively fast for our deployments. The system can also be configured to cluster mode and high availability
