"Excellent Middle ware Solution , with reliable control management"

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.

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.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As configuration is much difficult so trained your resource before implementation.

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.

"Oracle WebLogic"

What do you like best?

Oracle weblogic is having good feature which user can use to deploy the application with the help of war file. We can create multiple manage server to use the application. It's easy to start and stop the admin and manage server through services.It is having the logs features so helps to debug the issue. Deployment of war file is easy so that we can start the application. Weblogic is amazing product of oracle to use for the deployment of an application.

What do you dislike?

I'm using weblogic from some time and observing that they are some issue related to cookies like it stores cookies and fail to start the application so after that there is need to restart the admin and manage server.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's good to use and deploy the application and it's having good features.

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

With the help of this i'm able to capture the logs, start and stop the manage server, implement testing url to test the application.

What Application Server solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Best JavaEE Application Server in the market"

What do you like best?

I am an Oracle ACE and working with Java Application Servers more than 12 years. What makes Oracle WebLogic is gives the whole infrastructure layer for building world class JavaEE applications. Oracle WebLogic is also the first multitenant Java application server to support PaaS for SaaS. We use this feature to decrease the operation costs event in production systems. Oracle always publishes the roadmap for WebLogic and it will make us more comfortable for the feature.

What do you dislike?

Actually nothing. But honestly I can say the startup times of FMW products could be more faster.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have mission critical Java application then the hosting solution should be Oracle WebLogic.

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

We gain the power for making live Java threads more visible on JVM and Oracle WebLogic offers a lot of workaround for the performance bottlenecks.

the truth, if I recommend the program a lot because it is very practical and reliable.

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

"Weblogic as JMS Infrastructure"

What do you like best?

We extensively use weblogic's JMS feature to process billions of critical messages every quarter. We rely on our apps communication through the JMS with an uptime of 99.99 for years. It gives our developers and Project owners peace of mind for those messages to be delivered .

What do you dislike?

The complexity of this to make it happen on cloud. As much as we love the weblogic JMS feature we want to move to cloud and lack of weblogic SAAS model is a disappointment.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Solid product for your Applications for hosting or for for JMS infrastructure.

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

From Payments to shipments to tracking the delivery we use Weblogic as our infrastructure,

"clear and easy to administrate. . "

What do you like best?

Easy to navigate the admin console. I can find information easily on the web.The logs are easy to manage but hope the configurations of these logs can easily be updated, especially their locations. Otherwise the binary folder can be very large. The http(s) server is self managed so I don't have to trouble shoot the 404 common problems as I did before for Jboss. Its soapgateway doesn't have the many problems as for jboss. Hope there are some graph gui as in Jboss. Thanks

What do you dislike?

Hope there are more knowledge base/ training for weblogic from Oracle. More handson trainings! It will be nice the admin console has the similar graph gui as for Jboss. Its logs can be too large.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

More Gui support as for Jboss

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

We are using it for our ERP system. it has fewer issues than the older jboss.

"Robust middle tier to deploy Oracle applications"

What do you like best?

- Ease of deployment

- Fully supported by Oracle - and comes free with any oracle database

- Ease of administration of the tool and applications deployed within weblogic

- Enhanced logging and debugging functionality

What do you dislike?

- Oracle specific (which is good and bad)

- Sometimes the debug messages can be cryptic

- Steep learning curve for application administration via weblogic

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Web logic plays quite well with other Oracle applications (guess it is an Oracle product). Using it with Oracle APEX extended the capabilities of the tool. You can now use web logic to integrate with other services such as Apache FOP to generate PDFs.

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

We deployed Oracle APEX within Oracle web logic and enabled REST web service capabilities within APEX. This allowed us to segregate the application from the database layer (more like an MVC framework) - and allowed us to use weblogic to interact and create RESTful services to interact with data

"Very robust if you know how to use it"

What do you like best?

The admin console is extremely robust and you can monitor things that you can't in a less robust app server like tomcat, etc.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how weblogic does clusterinf additionally the CPU footprint is ridiculous

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

We are using Oracle weblogic to host Oracle Integration Cloud which solves our SOA needs

"Oracle made this robust application server unbeatable"

What do you like best?

Oracle weblogic as per me is the best application server to host our applications. Easy deployments, clustering capabilities make this a best software. Oracle did a good job after acquiring this weblogic server from BEA. I used to use this application server right from the BEA days and now I see this has become stable and when we moved from Sun to Linux operating system, we even observed better performance using this oracle weblogic server.

What do you dislike?

Some of the major draw backs of this Oracle weblogic is that we don't have a graphical tool to develop our scripts. We use wlst scripting tool which is provided by oracle itself, but looking forward to get some kind of graphical tool that can build all the scripts required.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Best applications server if you are looking to host your business application with zero outage and 24/7 availability

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

Hosting the application on this weblogic application server.

"Oracle Weblogic"

What do you like best?

Graphical console to manage most features. Multiple managed servers.

What do you dislike?

Byzantine complexity. Although there is a ton of documentation, it's not very useful. There are a ton of security issues and fixing them is not well documented.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I'd look elsewhere. Oracle licensing is draconian (I call it the Hotel California model - you can check out any time you want but you can never leave) and obscenely expensive.

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

We've used it for our Liferay portal and running a number of java web applications.

"Good App Server but lacks good installation documentation"

What do you like best?

It works pretty good once installed or when installed as it is out-of-the box. It works well for web applications particularly Java applications and it's fast, scalable and stable.

What do you dislike?

The installation documentation is not straightforward. Need to go through different docs to be able to install it efficiently. It doesn't provide clear steps to follow in case one wants only to use some of its features, for example, JMS or if issues are encountered. Technical help and support are minimal. It makes me think there's no expertise available in their technical support.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have a tight deadline, get an expert to help in the implementation.

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

Deployment of Web applications as well as High availability for said applications

What do you dislike?

The installation is usually a bit tedious, requires many dependencies and a high level of hardware

Recommendations to others considering the product:

recommended projects developed in java of a very broad scope, under architecture oriented to services

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

For projects developed in java of a very broad scope, it is a web server that works very optimally

"Robust Web Application Layer"

What do you like best?

Ease of use - WebLogic is very straightforward and organizes the most important server configurations in organized screens. Major IDEs export in WAR or EAR format which is staged in WebLogic and deployed to your cluster or node.

Heavy load - Can handle 30-40 applications running on a four-server cluster at one time. The UI remains responsive and isolated on an AdminServer separate from the running applications.

What do you dislike?

Heavy memory usage - Out of the box, WebLogic is configured for mainly 5-10 mid-grade applications. You need to alter memory parameters and sometimes boost physical hardware to increase heap stack to support heavier application loads, when pushing 35+ applications on one instance.

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

Web applications for business use.

WebLogic allows for easy deployment and maintenance.

"Its very cost effective and almost complete "

What do you like best?

It is almost complete solution for the web logic. It has some of the good features like customizing fields which can give us flexibility for the make the it more powerful. Also it has support of the java and. Net which I like most so that we can have kind of flexibility for choosing platform.

What do you dislike?

The migration support is not that good and the tools that they provide is not as expected and make life more complex. Other than that I think everything is good.

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

We have taken our whole data layer to the Oracle web logic so it is very cost effective and less to maintain the hardware. And very handy.

"Standard Commercial Application Server. "

What do you like best?

I have used weblogic and websphere application server and I do not see any pros or cons on either of them. They serve the purpose and you have good community support in case you need support.

What do you dislike?

Containers have stale application in some scenarios and could not be deleted without bringing down the server. Force Delete option should be supported.

"Oracle WebLogic for Java EE"

What do you like best?

Its ability to support Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL Enterprise and most JDBC enabled databases. It's connectivity with IBM WebSphere MQ was definitely a plus!

What do you dislike?

As with all application servers, there are concerns over performance, reliability and security. This is no different which resulted in redundant database backups just in case! Other than that, no major dislikes.

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

Business Process Management (BPM) and Data Mapping Functionality. Also it's support of security policies!

"The best Oracle server that I've ever used"

What do you like best?

As an Oracle Weblogic server administrator for a year I have to say that it's security is very good and you can rely on especially if you are using it with Linux operating system. I also like it's management because it is very easy to learn.

What do you dislike?

The most thing I dislike in Oracle Weblogic server is it's installation process because it is very complex and not easy to learn. You have to be professional to install it and make it stable so you can work with no problems. You have to choose the right version depending on your work.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend it
