It has helped me create and manage sophisticated enterprise websites, I use it to connect websites with java applications or servlets. It's the application server platform we need to support modernizing our tWAS infrastructure, legacy applications, and procedural workflows as we move toward DevOps ans microservices adoption.
  • Now we can take advantage of microservices and modernize our application architecture/infrastructure, it's a great new, dynamic, lightweight, container-ready application server runtime solution.
  • Developer Productivity has a fast startup time and a wide range of programming models.
  • Best of all, the apps don't have to be online at the sa,e time to have the ability to identify and address my needs.
  • Sometimes it can work very slowly, this has caused the implementation process of some applications to take longer than is really necessary.
It can be customized so that it can fulfill everything you need, thanks to the collection management function Liberty can manage many application servers. You can manage it with rudimentary IT knowledge, so it can be deployed in any business.

WebSphere is simply the best tool we have chosen for the proper management of our applications. We can do it locally or directly to the cloud which is the one we use the most in the organisation. Application development started to flow better since its implementation, it helps to have a more modern approach to any new application or even the old ones installed. It allows cost savings, and from the beginning you can notice the internal improvements.
  • Improvements in Java-based applications.
  • Good application development process.
  • Easy configuration to the data source.
  • Reduced licensing costs.
  • Data security.
  • Can be implemented on various operating systems.
  • Automation for the administration of applications.
  • Their technical support is not the best, sometimes not responding in time.
  • It lacks extensive documentation, which does not help to improve its configuration.
  • This is not intuitive.
It manages applications that are both cloud and local, IBM WebSphere Hybrid Edition has the necessary methods to facilitate the work with respect to improving the services of both existing applications as well as those that you wish to implement by creating various servers for applications.It has a very good user interface along with a technical support that is fortunately attentive and responsive to the doubts of its users. On the other hand I like the security that I can get for our applications in the company.

IBM Websphere Hybrid edition provides access to develop and deploy application across multiple environments. It has tools & frameworks for modernizing legacy applications, such as those built using traditional monolithic architectures. Websphere Hybrid edition has built-in security and compliance features, such as identity and access management, data protection and compliance reporting. These are the product features that I use generally.
  • I had use WebSphere hybrid edition to build an online store that integrates with payment gateways, inventory management systems and customer databases.
  • Supply chain management application .
  • Manufacturing application that integrates with sensors, machines and other machines on plant floor.
  • Powerful hardware require for complex architecture
  • When using with large-scale, high traffic apps it needs improvement in compiling.
  • It has extensive customization flexibility but it's very complex to implement a simple thing
As per my experience IBM WebSphere Hybrid edition is well suited where require a high level of customization and integration with other systems and platforms, Deployment of apps on cloud and on-premises, Complex requirements for multiple programming languages & frameworks.
It is less suited where developments are easy and simple also it has limited resources to manage.

We use IBM WebSphere hybrid Application Server to ensure that there's communication between applications located on premises and in the AWS/Azure cloud and in addition we have also integrated it with applications that are external facing used by vendors and customers. It helps us maintain inter-operability across the hybrid environment and gives us a good status update of communication.
  • constant updates on communication between environment on prem and cloud
  • very robust and resilient solution
  • helps scale Java applications very well
  • I would like for an easier integration with Apache Kafka
  • I would also like for the business rules layer to be a part of this same tool rather than use another tool
  • Provide memory usage reporting functionality and alerts
It is a true enterprise grad product that can support multiple Java virtual machines/containers (JVM) and can scale really well in terms of capacity. PRC that comes with the product has the best console functionality and can be used to monitor each and every including multiple JVM's inside the cluster. It works extremely well with Azure Active Directory and this is a big advantage.

I'm very impressed with IBM WebSphere Hybrid Edition, especially the WebSphere Liberty runtime. As an admin, I've found that it's much simpler, lightweight, and faster than the traditional WebSphere Application Server (tWAS) that we've been using for years. WebSphere Liberty is not only suitable for traditional VM environments but is also purpose-built for the cloud with super-fast startup times and low memory requirements.
  • Containerization of our apps is effortless.
  • Transformation Advisor (TA), which scans code to identify the suitability of using WebSphere Liberty, identifies what needs to change, provides an estimate on the effort required, and helps generate the server.xml file
  • It is lightweight.
  • Application of mono2Micro to refactor apps to microservices is very challenging complex.
WebSphere Hybrid Edition has been a game-changer for our organization, helping us modernize our WebSphere runtime and reduce infrastructure and license costs. It's one of the most powerful and reliable tools we've used, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to modernize their application server for Java-based applications.

I have used IBM WebSphere Hybrid Edition for the past 1 year and everything has been on running smoothly. It's a very flexible solution that we use for running and testing our business applications with Java server runtime environments. <br>I really like the flexible deployment options and managing apps regardless of the location and machines which has been excellent for testing and analysing deployed apps in multi-cloud environments. This tool is full-featured which are very easy to set up and and implement on the server. So far the support has been top-notch and supportive 24/7.
  • Support real-time visibility. A complete and clear view of our applications deployment and awareness.
  • Flexible deployment options like on-premises and cloud save our hardware space.
  • Through the Jakarta- EE and micro profile standards makes this tool more viable solution for applications development.
  • Easy deployment of applications patches.
  • The only dislike is the time it takes to maintain legacy apps while converting them into IBM WebSphere Hybrid Edition.
Absolutely IBM WebSphere Hybrid Edition is the best application testing and deploying tool set that has robust and reliable features easy to use and set up. It has multiple choices for deployment we are able to do it on the cloud or on-premises. The support is great makes sure all the new users grasp everything and provides excellent support services.

I use IBM Websphere hybrid edition in my organization to bridge the gap between traditional IT and cloud computing, and at the same time take advantage of the benefits of both environments. Our company also offers managed IT services to clients and so we deploy and manage applications across both on-premises and cloud environments for different clients. Websphere helps us to do this flexibly and leverage the existing infrastructure.
  • It has secure communication and data access between on-premises and cloud environments
  • provides automation capabilities to deploy, manage, and scale applications and resources.
  • just that IBM provides very little documentation for containerization and Kubernetes orchestration.
From a full-stack's engineer's perspective, IBM WebSphere is the Most ideal way to deploy your business applications in any environment. An underrated feature on WebSphere is its ability to deploy microservices-based applications. This will enable you to break down the application into smaller, independently deployable services, which can be deployed and managed separately. You'll also be better placed if you take their specific courses for hybrid edition.

IBM WebSphere Hybrid has allowed me to create and manage sophisticated commercial websites. In addition, I utilize the Websphere Application Server to link webpages using JavaServer Pages. This has helped me stand out from the competition and earn the loyalty of my customers. I feel it has offered my human resources team really great outcomes, including aiding in the management of the apps we utilize.
  • The management console is attractively laid up.
  • It's great for carrying heavy loads.
  • Is simple to expand to accommodate more nodes.
  • The logging options have improved.
  • A console that reveals which nodes are linked to which application servers.
  • More effective load balancing alternatives.
Because of its excellent infrastructure support and the fact that any expert can manage it with only rudimentary IT skills, I highly suggest it and am seriously considering obtaining it as soon as feasible. We've tested more than a hundred applications all at once, with 40 percent coming from HR alone, and they run like butter.

WebSphere Application Server is the most prominent application server and web container used by our organization across projects and verticals. It is one of the most robust web containers for large scale enterprise applications. WebSphere Application Server is being used right from developer workspace to Production environments due to its immense scalability and robustness. Websphere has developed different versions for these uses. Most web application which have beans and bindings use this WebSphere Application Server for deployment. It deploys and lets us manage the application easily.
  • Robustness
  • Stability
  • Cluster Management
  • EJB Support
  • Better and simpler Admin Console
  • Auto Heap Management
  • Email SMTP Connectivity
Large scale apps, EJB applications, Enterprise suite apps are where WebSphere Application Server will be most suited. Apps which need large volume and complex memory management also opt for WebSphere Application Server over Jboss.

Small scale web services and REST where highly scalable server is not needed, WebSphere Application Server falls back. Simple servers like Tomcat and Jboss take the edge for small apps.

IBM WAS is used in BPM and other middleware OLTP applications. As a part of GBS, I support a customer where WAS is been used extensively for application.
  • Security-rich Java server runtime environment.
  • WebSphere ND - Extensive support to containers.
  • Is a perfect fit for B2B, B2C and B2B2C companies.
  • More suitable for DevOps Environment.
  • Easy Deployment from command line.
  • Minimize the fixpack levels.
IBM WAS is good in transaction processing and suited for large deployments and enterprises looking for a smooth application server with less hassles. IBM WAS is not suited for batch processing kind of workload to work better.

It's actually something we use across the business but my specific use case is unique to my team. I host a Java based application that assists in the monitoring and deployment of IBM Datacap applications. WebSphere allows us to deploy the Java based application, manage its running and access as well as ensure that it is suitable for high impact and regular use.
  • It works out of the box. Its basic functionality is all there and everything works with no adjustments.
  • The functionality is there for fine tuning, to allow applications to be easier to access and quicker with some tweaks, but again, these aren't necessary for basic running.
  • Licensing costs can be quite steep, more so than some competitors.
  • There's quite a steep learning curve with some elements and the support available online is fairly limited.
Our company in particular uses WebSphere to host a multitude of Java based applications, that require high availability and span multiple nodes for clustering and it seems well suited to this end.

WebSphere Application Server had been the application server of choice for most critical applications and applications needing EJBs or to maintain state. It is used across many departments. I see it as more of a IT solution to host functionality to solve business problems, although I guess its high availability, scaling, etc. do solve business problems because a problem can be as simply defined as needing business continuity.
  • Session Management
  • Node Management
  • Scalability
  • High overhead (i.e. resource cpu/memory)
  • Configuration can always be improved

  • Robust application server
  • Ability to create multiple nodes and clusters
  • Very nice WAS console interface
  • Ease of use in terms of deployment, give simple interface to do simple stuff like Tomcat.
  • Some of the concepts are good for complexity that WAS can handle but could be simplified and better documented, like concepts of well and profile, context, etc.
  • Takes long time to start the server.

We have and application hosted on websphere application servers and websphere commerce. Its being used by our IS department here at Costco. Mainly we are in application support and environment support role.
Earlier i worked for ATT where i was supporting one troubleshooting application hosted on WAS.
  • Deployment of application is pretty easy
  • Easy maintenance
  • IBM folks are always there to help with any issues
  • Messaging functionalities are little bit complicated
  • There should be more detailed tutorials for messaging and security
  • Certification for expired notification should be automated
I believe WebSphere Application Server (WAS) is suited for all JEE applications. I have worked on J2EE based applications including commerce and portlets applications and believe that using WAS has added advantage over other JEE Servers. Although we faced a few issues while implementing queues connection factories over SSL for WebSphere MQ. IBM support folks are always there to help.

My team was responsible for developing and customizing IBM Maximo applications. The IBM WebSphere servers were used to deploy IBM Maximo EAR files. WebSphere was used deploy the Maximo software for the client. It was only used by teams implementing IBM Maximo and also as per the client's requests.
  • The IBM WebSphere console provides easy steps to deploy the Maximo EAR files on the server.
  • It provides a simple wizard to set up the server for a Maximo application. It guides you step by step from selecting the server type (Database, Directory and J2EE ), the setup server and node details, server administrative details, and port setting. It would automatically deploy it on the target machine.
  • The IBM Websphere console would behave erratically at times. When starting or stopping the server the small red and green icons would often take time to change even though the server would have started or stopped.
  • When deploying the EAR files, the logs are displayed. In case the window is closed or you click on any other link on the console there is no way you can get the console log page back. You will have to keep refreshing the deployed resources page in order to figure out if the deployment is complete or not.
  • When changing the status of the servers, no intermediate status is shown. Most of the time it works fine, as stated in the first point it would behave erratically. When the status changed the page would suddenly get refreshed and the icon colour gets updated. An acknowledgement and and console log like the once shown in deployment would be helpful.
My task was to configure IBM Maximo software and deploy them onto the IBM WebSphere web servers. Both products being from the same vendor was quite helpful. The IBM website provides ample resources for the configuration and troubleshooting of the system. The initial set up process consisted of simple steps through the wizard. The deployment and re-deployment of IBM Maximo EAR files was also fair and simple and guided by a wizard. From my knowledge and experience websphere is an easy to use and robust system.
