We are currently using Red Hat JBoss EAP for the application server layer. It is mainly used by the Java developers in the company.
  • It is easy to install.
  • Easy scalability.
  • Makes Java applications run fast.
  • Usability is not that great.
  • User interface could be improved.
  • Price.
Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application is a top choice for JEE applications. Usability is not great (documentation avalilable, though), but installation and deployment are straightforward.

Deploy to JBoss

We currently use it as our application server for our Web application across the whole organization. It is our current web container to deploy our application.
  • Easy configuration and setup to deploy multiple web applications.
  • Easy automated deployments.
  • Supports the latest standards for Web Development.
  • It's a bit slow to deploy once started.
  • It's not as lightweight as say Tomcat.
We currently use JBoss because of the compatibility to J2EE and because currently we use EJB's.

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is a subscription based, open - source platform for building, deploying and hosting Java applications and services. We are using it as application server for 4 of our applications. We have total 25 Virtual Machines running JBoss EAP. We have configured domain controller, host controller and singleton Jboss instances. We are currently using it entirely on-premise but we have future plans to move it to cloud or at least hybrid cloud. The deployment is easy, resulting in lower cost and speedier deliveries.
  • JBoss deployment and configuration is easy and fast. This leads to lower cost and faster deliveries.
  • Jboss gives you lot of flexibility around performance tuning options to better suite your application needs.
  • It is modular and cloud ready. This can be installed on-premise and cloud with equal ease.
  • I specifically love it's integration with mod_cluster. It is a smart httpd based load balancing component that listens to incoming requests on web server using httpd and then intelligently routes the request to Jboss hosts.
  • 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.
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.

We are currently transforming a legacy mainframes system running People Soft to a more advanced ERP solution. We are using Red Hat JBoss EAP for the application server layer. We have around 40 JBoss instances running lots of JVMs for multiple applications. We have configured domain controllers, host controllers, and singleton JBoss instances. We are also using mod_cluster integration in JBoss EAP, which is an intelligent load balancer. We build, deploy and host high transaction java applications on 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.
  • 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.
Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) is well suited for deploying high transaction Java EE based applications. It supports many popular Java EE web-based frameworks such as Spring, Angular JS, jQuery Mobile, and Google Web Toolkit.

JBoss EAP is being used by our organization to deploy Java web applications for multiple websites for the company. It is mainly used by the Java developers and web administration team across the whole organization. We mainly use JBoss for heavier deployments compared to lighter ones, which we deploy on Tomcat.
  • Full-featured
  • Easy to install
  • Scalable
  • Price
  • User interface
Jboss EAP is suitable for most J2EE applications for enterprise level. It is quite simple to deploy and install, and documentations are widely available.

Use EAP for rapid on-demand environmental scaling of our JAVA applications. This application provides excellent security and management features while allowing for scaling at a moments notice. This is the best middleware option that I know of. Great software for building and deploying HTML 5 applications that have high availability and demand needs
  • Reduces DevOps resource requirements
  • Allows for Rapid Scalability
  • Enables super fast java applications
  • interface
  • usability
  • price
JBOSS is very suited for an enterprise application development team that is trying to build rapidly scalable web solutions in Java and HTML5.

We develop and deploy application to JBoss EAP 6.
  • easy to scale
  • fast boot time
  • domain mode vs standalone
  • support for OSGi
For standard JEE apps jboss is probably a good choice. For, applications that use OSGi, jboss is not going to be fun to work with.

So great for our developers and very stable opens our cell platform. Administration platform is extremely easy to configure and update any type of deployment. The fact that you don't have to edit xml configuration files is awesome!
  • Supports Java EE
  • Admin of servers
  • Configuration management
  • Could be faster
  • Cloud pricing needs more flexibility
  • Great for development and deploying Java web apps
  • Also great for building servers
