Overall Satisfaction with Oracle WebLogic Application Server

It is used by a few departments. We also run WebSphere and Jboss but for my primary position, it’s WebLogic 11g and 12c. This is our application server for all SSO integration with Oracle OIG/OaM.
  • Ease of use for new versions.
  • Not huge changes per version.
  • Easily navigate able GUI.
  • Kept mostly the same since purchased from BEA years ago.
  • Changes with each tiny version not detailed.
  • Soo many PSU’s and security vulnerability.
  • BSU difficult to use and patching details not always accurate with BSU and OPatch.
  • Use of product over time with experts paid support.
  • There are many skilled employees in the job market who have worked with the product.
WebSphere is another major contender and they have pitching and are more updated/streamlined. I still prefer WebLogic from an administrator standpoint. Support is much better and there are more options for finding answers to issues or new features.
Well suited for large scale companies looking for scalable middleware that can be used in an onprem or cloud environment.
