We currently use the Oracle WebLogic suite in one of our departments only, a robust application server by Oracle which comes free with the database. Based on our experience with this product, it has been really cost-effective and not a lot of maintenance was necessary.
  • Enhanced clustering capabilities with easy deployment
  • Surprisingly superior debugging/logging functionality
  • WLST(WebLogic Scripting tool) and the WebLogic console are extremely useful
  • Out the box configuration might not be ideal for supporting heavy loads (25+ apps per instance)
  • There is a learning curve with the tools provided but isn't a big con IMO
All in all a very robust product for Oracle application deployments with its ease of use, scalability, packed functionality and scalability.

Oracle WebLogic Suite Review: "Adopting WebLogic over Websphere"

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

We are currently migrating to WebLogic Suite as our primary application server platform. Previously we were only running WebLogic in conjunction with Oracle Discoverer and Oracle Customer Care and Billing. WebLogic is a powerful application server platform and is already showing increases in efficiency and scalability for us.
  • Provides a robust application server platform and standardized skill set
  • Provides infinite scalability options
  • Easy integration accross the organization
  • Allows for advanced configuration and automation of configurations and the creation of new environments
  • The UI is not as robust as the tool and lacks some useful fuctionality
  • Cost is significant depending on use and how it will be leveraged
  • Oracle needs to produce a better guide for getting started
WebLogic is fantastic for building and deploying applications and web services. It offers advanced, scalable building and configurations for a wide range of applications. It simplifies the creation of new products and environments and consolidates the skill sets required to maintain an organization's application domains. It is, however, a significant investment depending on the number of nodes in place and is more suited for large organizations, especially those which have licensing volumes warranting entering an enterprise licensing agreement with oracle.

If you have one or two users needing to access the same set of data or process something, then you really don't need to go full core on an Oracle WebLogic Suite. It’s designed for handling a lot of users accessing applications, and supporting high availability/fail-over nodes for web hosted applications. That is where the product thrives. You can configure it to aggregate data from multiple back end data sources, allow users to access hosted applications, filter, route, and host. This is where it shines.
