Overall Satisfaction with Oracle WebLogic Application Server

All the applications throughout the organization run on a single platform and are deployed on the WebLogic Application Server. Since all the applications are deployed on the same platform, it makes life much simpler to maintain the servers.
  • Built-in diagnostic modules that can be easily activated for a server instance.
  • Ease of creating and maintaining multiple domains for different applications.
  • Ability to create virtual hosts and targets to which WebLogic Server instances or clusters respond.
  • Powerful clustering framework to balance the load on the server instances.
  • The domain template exporter needs to be more flexible and able to be imported by a new server installation. It's a tedious task to recreate all the resources when the server is upgraded.
  • The administration console can be better designed to be more user-friendly.
  • WebLogic Application Server definitely had a positive ROI since all the applications are deployed on a single platform and making maintenance extremely cost effective.
  • Since all major cloud vendors support and maintain WebLogic, it gives us an opportunity to explore possibilities to move the organizational infrastructure on to the cloud without too much effort.
Oracle WebLogic Application Server is much more stable when compared to opensource application servers like Oracle GlassFish Server or Apache Tomcat. Coming to JBoss Enterprise Application Server, Oracle WebLogic Application Server has better support with most of the cloud vendors which makes it easier if the organization decides to explore the cloud migration.
It is extremely well designed and user-friendly in a clustered environment where a load balancer is used to distribute the transactions. It has the ability to communicate well with other systems deployed in different environments. Due to the expense, it is not financially feasible to use for small scale applications where the transaction load is minimal. In such cases, a simple web server or an open-source application server like Glassfish would be more appropriate.
