Overall Satisfaction with Oracle WebLogic Application Server

We use WebLogic for our major ERP systems such as E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft and Ellucian Banner.
  • WebLogic on Linux is rock solid. I believe, its main advantage is that it practically does not go down.
  • WebLogic has a good admin console and integrates well with Oracle OEM making it easier to manage and administer compared to competition.
  • WebLogic is very configurable and flexible in terms cluster or standalone architecture.
  • WebLogic cloning is cumbersome. No easy way of creating a new WebLogic server environment as a clone of the existing one, preserving the managed servers and deployed apps.
  • Applying PSU often required to remove an existing one-off patch.
Apache Tomcat is used by the group of developers in our organization but the major student ERP production systems do run on WebLogic due to its feature-rich nature and stability. Although the cost is considered a hindrance to its wider use.
WebLogic has worked well for us as a middleware platform for the Ellucian Banner suite of systems.

WebLogic may not be a platform of choice for developers that don't have an in-staff WebLogic administrators. It requires a dedicated admin staff and carries a substantial licensing cost. For small development shops the Tomcat product would be better.
