Overall Satisfaction with Oracle WebLogic Application Server

I used it in my internship. We used Oracle WebLogic Application Server (OWAS) in the IT department for easier manageability and performance.
  • Manageability - high % less time & effort with administration.
  • Deployment & scalability - less effort & time in deployment/production scaling.
  • Performance - better performance in application server, even in production environments.
  • Clustering is supported for all the basic APIs.
  • Deployment can be done in multiple ways
  • Farming feature - being able to hot-deploy on one machine will cause that component to be hot-deployed on all instances within the cluster.
  • Cost.
  • Vertical scaling - if CPUs are added, cost per CPU has to be paid extra.
  • Administration and Configuration maintenance can be done through a UI and hence might ease the administrator’s task thus reduces the amount of time spent on learning how to use the program itself.
  • Performance - much faster and able to get work done faster.
  • JBoss
Weblogic is better than JBoss in many way such as:
  • being able to deploy in multiple ways
  • clustering is supported for all of basic APIs and even JMS is also supported which is advantageous for high-availability
  • performance is great even in production environments
  • very easy to use, simple user-interface

JBoss does not support JMS clustering and performance in production environments is not great at all.
If you need an application server that has zero or small downtime to deploy, that is easy to use with a robust user interface, has great performance, and clustering is being supported for all of the basic APIs, then this would be great for you.
