Overall Satisfaction with Oracle WebLogic Application Server

We are currently implementing Weblogic J2EE projects requiring the implementation of application servers for high performance. Weblogic Server resolves us greatly administration and management of the server loaded applications, it allows us to establish opportune diagnostic of application performance and it facilitates the management of database connections.

  • Extensive diagnostics of server performance
  • JDBC management
  • Server Clustering
  • Websockets management
  • Learning curve. It has lot of functionalities for you to explore.
  • Their admin console can be a bit complicated and sometimes does not upgrade things properly
  • Good Management in the JDBC control allows early detection of problems that may impair the performance of the application. Open connections in JDBC translate into lost money for support processes
  • The cost may be high, but the return on investment comes quickly due to reduced incidents on web infrastructure
Weblogic is heavy machinery for medium/large enterprises, while Jboss can be used discreetly. Glassfish is the ancestor of Weblogic and the advantage is the free Enterprise version. If you don't have much to invest, Glassfish 3 could be a great alternative. Apache Tomcat and other web containers can be used if you don't need J2EE support.
if you have a complex J2EE architecture and you ask for performance, go Weblogics. if you need to speed up development times on J2EE architecture, you can choose another alternative. If you use a framework like Spring or Struts in your code, in my opinion it is better to go for something lighter.
