We use the Oracle Weblogic Application server to deploy both service bus and SOA integration services. We also deploy some Java web and EJB applications on Oracle Weblogic Application servers.

  • JMS queues.

The server is very good for deploying Java-based applications. We also build Oracle Service Bus and Service-Oriented Architecture-based synchronous and asynchronous services on top of the standard Weblogic layer. We use the server to create data sources with connection pools and Java Messaging queues which have very good functionality and great control on retry.

All the applications throughout the organization run on a single platform and are deployed on the WebLogic Application Server. Since all the applications are deployed on the same platform, it makes life much simpler to maintain the servers.
  • 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.
  • The domain template exporter needs to be more flexible and able to be imported by a new server installation. It's a tedious task to recreate all the resources when the server is upgraded.
  • The administration console can be better designed to be more user-friendly.
It is extremely well designed and user-friendly in a clustered environment where a load balancer is used to distribute the transactions. It has the ability to communicate well with other systems deployed in different environments. Due to the expense, it is not financially feasible to use for small scale applications where the transaction load is minimal. In such cases, a simple web server or an open-source application server like Glassfish would be more appropriate.

It is being used as an application server for telecom oss-bss applications. It is also standard application server for custom application. It is the backbone of 100s of telco use cases. Most importantly weblogic users won’t have to struggle with database connection handling, java messaging service, user management and web service throttling.

  • JMS
  • User management
  • Other application connectivity adaptors
  • Restart requirement for configuration changes

We use WebLogic Application Server to deploy all our Java based applications. Most of our applications are web based and hence we have most of our code written in Java language and all server side code gets build and deployed on weblogic server across our organization for all internal and external applications.
  • Scalable
  • Robust
  • Secure
  • Better cloud based deployment
  • CI/CD internal build tools
  • Various DB version connectivity
The best thing of using WebLogic Application server is it's easiness and user friendly interface which is very easy for expert to amateur programmers, administrators and non technical users. The WebLogic application server container comes with most of the ready to use plugins and pre populated options which makes it easier for user to select the correct option. It also provides features like doing a live connection test, JMS test etc.

Weblogic Application Server had become the corporate standard for more than 10 years, it is widely used in our IT department, for dev, test and production environment. It is majorly used to host the full J2EE stack web application and back-end solutions (JSP, JSF, EJB). We use many features of the Weblogic, which includes Clustering, Deployment, Environment management, Monitoring, DataSource, JMS, etc. We even deploy a lot of SOAP-based web service and some Jersey-based REST service endpoints in Weblogic. Those applications support the core business from many domains. Even today, our EJB is gradually replaced by microservices and our monolithic web application is replaced by SPA, we still use Weblogic environment to host some legacy but very important core applications.
  • Easy to use and configure
  • High availability, very reliable and stable (can configure self-healing strategy)
  • Very well integrated with the other Oracle product family
  • Deployment in the cluster is quite handy
  • 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.
Weblogic will become your choice if you desire complex, important, high available business applications which is tightly coupled with some resources (database, JMS, for example). If you are looking for a light container (especially when you don't need EJB), and also if you have financial constraint, you should choose another open-source product like JBOSS or Tomcat (embedded in Spring Boot also), Jetty (for responsive service).

My organization is heavily invested in using Oracle WebLogic. Most of our non-cloud native apps are using version 12.1.3. It addresses our needs for an enterprise-focused server system that keeps constant and frequent security updates with very limited configuration needed. I've personally had no issues using it in my local workspace, and it starts up very quickly.
  • Small amount of configuration needed out of the box.
  • Enterprise-focused.
  • Reliable.
  • Expensive, which drives smaller companies away.
  • Can't use newer versions of Java with it.
Oracle WebLogic Application is great for applications that use J2EE frameworks, and it provides exceptional reliability. Because it is one of the most-used servers and one of the oldest as well, the documentation and forum discussions are abundantly available. However, it is less appropriate for cloud-native integrations, since it itself is not cloud-native.

It is used by most of our clients, they are large scale enterprises and it used primary because of the Oracle and Java support that comes with it. The main business issue that it handles is the all in one clustering and messaging. It is usually bundled as a sales package with Oracle DB and Java support.
  • Messaging
  • Clustering Management
  • Run-time performance
  • Deployment is usually a problem. After multiple deployments the server usually needs a restart.
  • Logging is poor when it comes to native issues.
  • Its console needs improvement. There are several times when it says "done, no restart needed" but it does need a restart.
If you need a managed clustered, fail safe solution for a large scale enterprise project and you are not worrying about your budget then use WebLogic. If you need rapid deployments, rapid development, microservice or you don't have a budget then use something else like Payara. It is all about money and target development/deployment time.

It is the most trusted Java EE environment across the industry. It has got a lot of tools and automation possibilities. One less known but really useful tool in the stack is the CAT (which stands for Classloading Analytics Tool). I'd recommend the software if you are able to purchase a licence. It really helps the automation with the console and the operations with the admin.

It is used by some projects of the Healthcare department. We had many versions of our server environment, and both the application and database servers were managed from the Oracle WebLogic Application Server. There was personnel, who managed the whole system, with environments and everything connected to it. But I was a test automation engineer, so I didn't have to use it that detailed. However, I still had to go deep in the UI.
  • The servers can be managed with ease. If you know where to find what you need, it is simple to be used.
  • At first, the UI is too complex. The vast functionality plays on the contrary to transparency.
When you have multiple environments (like different language settings) and multiple types of servers (app, DB), then the management of them is quite simple.

We are using Oracle WebLogic Application Server to build, deploy and test our Java EE applications. It allows us to develop multi tier applications according to Java EE specifications. Since we are using many enterprise features such us distributed transactions, SOAP WebServices, REST endpoints and many more of which all are supported by WebLogic our work is done faster and easier.
  • Configuration and management is simple with web-based console.
  • Very stable environment for Java EE applications.
  • Good support provided by Oracle.
  • Application server specific APIs could be described in a better way.
  • Generation of WSDL files from SOAP WS implementation is far from being perfect.
WebLogic Application Server is well suited for big enterprise class applications when there is a need for Java EE specific features. In case of distributed transactions WebLogic works especially well with other Oracle products. Clustering and JMS are among another really well working aspects of WebLogic. It think you should not use WebLogic for small projects where it will introduce a lot of overhead.

It is being used by a department. It is used to host applications that provide services for residents of San Francisco. It facilitates integration between my department and other city departments so that customers' service requests can be created, updated and closed. It is highly available and is proven to offer its users top performance.
  • I think it is a great application server for developing and deploying applications across cloud environments and on-premise
  • Hgh performance, scalability and reliability
  • Simplify operations and reduce management costs
  • I would like to see only one console if possible instead of having to navigate through the enterprise manager, console and service bus console.
  • The consoles are sometimes slow and not easy to use.
  • I would like to see thread management through the consoles and be able to deal with a stuck thread without a server restart.
It is well suited for development and deployment and monitoring of complex applications. I have used it in the past for WebLogic integration application deployments and today deploy and run SOA Suites composites from there. It is easy to create and configure resources like JMS resources and data sources and others. It provides a set of logs (server logs, diagnostics logs, admin logs ...) and is very useful for troubleshooting.

I don't have a big downside at this moment. It does its job well.

We use WebLogic for our major ERP systems such as E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft and Ellucian Banner.
  • WebLogic on Linux is rock solid. I believe, its main advantage is that it practically does not go down.
  • WebLogic has a good admin console and integrates well with Oracle OEM making it easier to manage and administer compared to competition.
  • WebLogic is very configurable and flexible in terms cluster or standalone architecture.
  • WebLogic cloning is cumbersome. No easy way of creating a new WebLogic server environment as a clone of the existing one, preserving the managed servers and deployed apps.
  • Applying PSU often required to remove an existing one-off patch.
WebLogic has worked well for us as a middleware platform for the Ellucian Banner suite of systems.

WebLogic may not be a platform of choice for developers that don't have an in-staff WebLogic administrators. It requires a dedicated admin staff and carries a substantial licensing cost. For small development shops the Tomcat product would be better.
Not yet, but I'm interested in Oracle user groups

Weblogic is used in various ways. Either at the department level for internally developed applications or at the enterprise level for some of the middleware products that need WebLogic to run such as EBS/BPM/ SOA, etc.
It addresses business needs in various departments from finance, to shipping both locally and internationally. We have various operating companies that also use the product in the defined ways above.
  • It is a true and tested EE server
  • It is easy to deploy and manage
  • It is very stable and resilient
  • Needs to be brought to the new era of Cloud Native, but Oracle is working thru that.
  • It is costly, though for my company that is not an issue due to our partnership with Oracle
  • Current versions don't support the latest Java. Rather they are not certified with java 11 though java is also an Oracle product!!
In big monolithic J2EE application, WebLogic is a j2ee container. So for robust enterprise solutions that use the EE standards, Weblogic is well suited. It integrates well with other Oracle products such as Java and
Oracle databases. Since WebLogic has been around for a very long time, there is ample documentation on best practices to use the product, thereby adoption is fairly easy.
Yes
Java: this user group provides papers on some of the new implementations of java and the new standard and best practices. This is a community-driven initiative, therefore, you get unadulterated information. The community is great at providing code snippets to demonstrate how to solve problems in a manner that is useful to developers of different skill levels.

We use a variant of WebLogic called Oracle Communications Converged Application Server (OCCAS) to develop real-time, audio/video messaging applications. This allows us to modify the behavior of network equipment easily. Instead of waiting years for network equipment providers to create new applications, we can do it in a matter of days.
  • Support for WebRTC.
  • Support for SIP.
  • Distributed memory cache for large-scale, clustered applications.
  • More frequent releases to match the latest versions of Java - it's about three years out of date. You'd like to use the latest language features but you don't know if it's going to work or not! It's on Java 8, and Java is on version 12.
With its use of Coherence as a distributed memory cache, you can easily write clustered applications in the same manner as if it were a single-node system. Enhanced versions of the product are available to support additional networking protocols beyond simple HTTP.

We use Oracle WebLogic Application Server for OBIEE. We manage OBIEE application administration using WebLogic Server. It's a web-based application, so all administration is done through WebLogic Application Server. We do a lot of deployments using the WebLogic Server. It helps us to keep our applications up and running.
  • We are able to manage the application and deployments well using WebLogic Server in OBIEE.
  • We can monitor the application health using WebLogic Server.
  • It makes the job easy for our Administrators.
  • User interface can be better - when we go to the application, we have to do a lot of clicking to see all of the things. It would be better of all the data was visible from one window.
  • Performance can be better.
  • It should be able to send alerts in case of server health issues.
It's well suited for Oracle Fusion technologies. Managing applications using Oracle WebLogic Server is pretty easy. However it can still do better in managing the system performance. Oracle can improve the WebLogic Application Server by adding altering functionality in the application and also it can improve the user interface so that any administrator can quickly do the analysis and solve issues.

We are using Oracle WebLogic Application Server for hosting a few Java enterprise applications. Some of the applications are mission critical while some of these applications are lightweight reporting tools. We are using this across multiple projects although in some of the other projects we are also using Red Hat Jboss for the same purpose.
  • WebLogic Application Server administration is easy to learn. The Web console is a very sophisticated interface and you will find yourself using web console much more than using the command line.
  • Application deployment is easy and can be done entirely from the web console.
  • It has great features for performance monitoring and configurations. You can do a lot of custom settings to suit your business needs.
  • It includes creation of security realms which you can use to manage access levels for different users within the organization.
  • It's cumbersome to diagnose problems with the node server and weblogic machine. We often find ourselves bouncing the weblogic server in events we see issues with node server connectivity with the machine.
  • It is resource intensive application and performs slow when you have RAM/CPU crunches.
Oracle WebLogic is one of the most sophisticated application servers and is part of the middleware product family from Oracle. It's well suited for medium to high volume transaction applications and can be used on multiple OS platforms.
It is quite expensive though and if you are looking for a cheaper alternative, then consider checking Red Hat JBoss EAP.

We are using Oracle Weblogic server to host various J2EE based web applications for our company websites. We are also making use of clustering in Oracle Weblogic. The application server is hosted internally while the web request is served through a reverse proxy using Oracle iPlanet server. Most of the heavier application are hosted in Weblogic.
  • Stable and powerful
  • GUI is powerful and easy to use
  • Easy to use, simple to deploy an application
  • Cost might be issue
  • Not as lightweight as some other competitors
Oracle WebLogic server is well suited if you want a powerful and scalable application server to deploy a complete J2EE stack app. Due to the heavier nature of the application server, it is more suited for larger applications with heavy usage. If you want to deploy a small app with minimal access from users, a more light-weight application server like Tomcat may be more suitable.

We are using Oracle WebLogic as our fraud application (Tombeller Siron Suite) and Oracle OFSAA (LFRM) application. The Siron WebLogic system serves all bank financial transactions, like Swift. LFRM is a finance management application. Mainly our finance and risk departments are using this application.
  • First reason: it's easy to manage. There are many management services we are using, and this service gives us flexibility.
  • Second reason is redundancy. We are using high availibility features for mission critical services.
  • Security. Oracle publishes new security patches and upgrades often.
  • Licensing model is complex.
  • VMware support and certified features are very important, and also whether or not WebLogic supports and is certified to VMware virtualization. We can use more WebLogic systems.
If you have mission critical services, and you need high availability, WebLogic is suitable for using there. But if you have a small project, sometimes WebLogic licenses are too expensive.

Oracle WebLogic Server is used in the organization as the exclusive server of the enterprise and intranet applications of the company, and for basic management of CRM for the clients. Oracle WebLogic Server is an adequate support for Oracle SOA and Oracle BPM technologies. It allows the implementation and advanced configuration of applications of all kinds.
  • The main power comes to be the scalability of the applications implemented in Oracle WebLogic Server.
  • Oracle WebLogic Server allows me to define different points of access to data sources, including the creation of a multiple connection focused on facilitating access to data.
  • Integration of very simple applications. Your use of WSLT is fantastic.
  • Oracle WebLogic Server is based on a previous user interface. Therefore, it does not include the latest representation updates. Therefore, its domain at the graphic level is much lower compared to other servers.

My organization is an Oracle partner, therefore we value the use of its products not only in our projects and suggestions but eventually in our in-house applications. Our confidence in the product assures us that we have a robust and well-supported platform for our tools to provide an overall better service.
  • The brand relation between Java and WebLogic Application Server usually provides a quicker access to programming features and their availability for the applications deployed.
  • The access to centralized configuration both from console and command line WLST eases the implementation of changes major or not in an organized and expedite way.
  • The maturity of the product is also visible in the available tools provided by the product itself, for both monitoring of resources and alerting for availability and thresholds
  • Oracle could provide WLST with a graphics tool, to ease the scripting especially providing inbuilt list/details of accessible methods/objects
  • A visible memory footprint often causes an overhead in the jvm runtime. Maybe too many product artifacts being loaded on boot?
  • The console seems to still be in progress; some of the tables even in version 12c aren't customizable and displaying of long lists is often broken when you cant filter.
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.

Oracle WebLogic Application Server is used across the whole organization as the only permitted application server. It allows developers to rely on a mature and stable JEE server known by many java developers in the world. As such, it is easy to find developers having the required knowledge. Secondly, Oracle provides very efficient support if you need it.
  • The web interface allows to easily control the JEE features given to an application
  • This is the world number one commercial application server in the world that nearly all experienced JEE developers know
  • This is the best JEE implementation
  • It is heavy compared to JBOSS app server (but it covers the complete JEE stack)
  • The weblogic console is sometimes slow and not easy to use (not always user friendly)
  • It is expensive
It is well suited if you need a stable and complete JEE application server with strong support if ever needed. If you only have non-critical apps to deploy or if you don't expect to have lot of users you should better choose an open source web application server. If your staffing is young they will prefer to use lighter solutions

Being a part of the release engineering team, we use Oracle Weblogic Application server to manage and maintain critical aspects of domains, servers, clusters, deployments, security realms, and services of a particular environment. It is used across the entire organization to support applications that run on our environments.
  • It is the best application server to host an application across an enterprise. Not only to do you get a summary of your complete environment which includes the servers, cluster etc., you can dig deeper and even find details about individual threads.
  • Extremely easy deployment that can be done through few clicks. You can view the state, health and type of your deployment making it easier to debug when something goes down.
  • Enriched feature of Security Realms makes it easy to add new users to an environment, tie them to a group, and look into credential mappings.
  • There needs to be a graphical tool to develop certain scripts used for maintenance of the environment. It may get tedious to debug the scripts provided by Oracle.
  • UI can become even more intuitive & easy on the eyes.
For a wide variety of enterprise applications, Oracle Weblogic Server is best suited where the best possible care is taken related to user security, roles and policies. The compatibility between other Oracle Enterprise Management tools makes it a great choice.
