What do you like best?

Based on my experience Oracle WebLogic is a powerful platform for deploying different kinds of applications. We use WebLogic in our company for many years, and I can say it is a good middleware choice for the corporate environment. Before Oracle WebLogic, we had many problems with a previous application server, because it used to crash often. The real power of Oracle WebLogic is its extensibility and flexibility. You can, for instance, install the SOA server as a managed server and connect it to the base domain or create a whole new domain. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The concept of the Oracle Fusion Middleware including WebLogic might be simplified. There are so many choices and options available in this concept, and it would be much easier to understand the whole concept if the high-level picture is properly communicated with customers instead of all possibilities it offers. Many customers don't need all components for their use. As a user/customer you need to invest a lot of time initially to understand all the features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Oracle WebLogic is a very good choice for enterprises with a lot of different applications. I would recommend this product for corporate information systems and heterogeneous environments. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The best thing which I like about weblogic is that how easy it is to deploy my jar on it.

Apart from that, the logs are very descriptive about deployment success or failure.

Also, the presentation of messaging queues is very understandable and intuitive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

At time, the server takes forever to start. I could not see anything in the logs. I had to force kill the server. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

1. Restart of server is quite time taking, if something can be done to reduce that time, it would be great.

2. Also, while creating a new JMS queues, initially there might be some confusion to a new user. A more simpler and explanatory documentation would be helpful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used it at my office to deploy my code on Oracle Weblogic. Our services were hosted on it and JMS queues were used for communication between parties. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As we are using this middle ware server since more than 4 years where owner of this tool has startup market or launch. Before this we are using oracle application server but we migrate it as support gone expire. Web logic is very much stable and robust structure to compare with other middle ware tools. We normally use to deploy apex application on it , and believe me performance is gone very high as this is doing auto load balancing. It may supports Oracle, DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL Enterprise as well which very much helpful of a company which want single source of middle ware. High availability, failover, and load balancing using clusters are key feature of this product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Installation and Configuration is much complex, we cannot do by ourselves before going to trained.But when we gone through then application deployment is easy and can be done from the admin console. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As configuration is much difficult so trained your resource before implementation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before this we are using application server which very complex and not easy to maintain. further we have to take manual backup which hurt our database team. Further, no monitoring tool available so visibility was the issue. Additionally, performance also very circuital. Thus, Web logic solve above all issue. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

ease of use, product over the years have added good features yet UI and most processes stay the same Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

oracle support and knowledge from reps that are assigned SR's. Takes a very long time to get knowledgable help from Oracle that can resolve issues. Many times need to ask for escalation but need to call in to ask for management to do this. We are still thinking about third part Oracle Support like Rimini Street. This along with patching older products with BSU and security updates that come out are too often an inbetween. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

weigh all products that you are looking at for what you need, Weblogic or Webpshere may be too expensive and Jboss may not do what you need. Support is a very big deciding factor Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The main power comes to be the scalability of the applications implemented in Oracle WebLogic Server.

Oracle WebLogic Server allows me to define different points of access to data sources, including the creation of a multiple connection focused on facilitating access to data.

Integration of very simple applications. Your use of WSLT is fantastic. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Licensing model is complex.

Oracle WebLogic Server is based on a previous user interface. Therefore, it does not include the latest representation updates. Therefore, its domain at the graphic level is much lower compared to other servers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Oracle WebLogic Application Server for hosting a few Java enterprise applications. Some of the applications are mission critical while some of these applications are lightweight reporting tools. We are using this across multiple projects although in some of the other projects we are also using Red Hat Jboss for the same purpose. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I think Weblogic is very powerful and very complete. It covers most important thing in a JEE Application Server besides specific Oracle things that are very useful. Something is useful to legacy. Something is useful for modern applications. In conclusion: an excellent application server. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I have been working with Weblogic for several years - and between versions, the product is usually realiable and stable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When using additional products along with weblogic, you are forced to use an Oracle Database, which means additional licensing and infrastructure costs. It would be great if postgres/mysql was supported. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As long as you plan and design your infrastructure and configuration beforehand you should be in for a stable reliable product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are primarily using Weblogic Service Bus - and what we are seeing is more stability and scalability Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The number steps to deploy the build through weblogic are very few and it takes very less time to push the build to lower environments, deployment through automation integration is effective and saves manual efforts to do the same job again and again, last successful build can be revoked in no time Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are still unnecessary steps to deploy the builds which should be clubbed or remove to make the deployment process simple, the heap size set makes apps slow during high traffic to the apps Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Working in a constitute tool where you actually control your application. Even the service provider are the best vendor in the market for the maintenance. Even for the security purpose it release security patches to apply on tools to keep it secure and trustable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As Oracle has stopped maintenance for the older versions of weblogic which is a problem for those who still has their application deployed on it. Stucked threads are still a problem which makes the machine idle. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
