What do you like best?

For developing large java enterprise applications, it gives lots of features. Deployment of applications really fast and for configuration wise it is super easy. Fast scalability is another great feature for Jboss. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Pricing for cloud it too high. Although it has gui, sometimes it needs more time to learn and get familiar with it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

For using java web apps, Jboss gives flexibility to easy to administrate,install and deploy. It gives a chance for scaling so fast together with providing security management features. Another great thing about Jboss is you can easily find documentation and necessary support which is really helpful if you are stuck at some point. It is a great tool for large j2ee applications.

What do you like best?

I like flexibility of Jboss; when it comes to logging for external components you can configure easily. Architecture changes like standalone to high-available can be achieved with few steps as very well documented. GUI helps to see if any runtime changes allowed Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Heavy configuration when it comes to application specific requirements. Developers find it hard to track environmental changes so microservices are better for CI/CD deployments. Manageability sometimes rely on manual or shell scripted procedures. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Active messaging queues, Customer adaption softwares which is written in Java. Benefits are in expansion deployments, EAP brings automation which same inputs can be automated via script provided by Redhat, that makes an easy when you expand your environment Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

There is a lot of documentation all over the internet talking about almost any topic of this server: How can you configure a database pool? How can you activate security? etc... Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's not the fastest server in the world. Specially during the startup, if you need to use a lot of modules (datasources, EJBs, queue managers, and so on) don't expect it to start in less than 3-5 minutes.

Of course it might mean that your application is too big to be deployed fast enough. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

It help us deploy a really big monolithic application built on top of EJBs specs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike but there is a suggestion to improve UI based installation which can take custom configuration changes like support for HTTPS certificate or SSL certificate. Also, create standalone.xml file with all valid attributes leaving end user to update as per business needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If possible, kindly provide a UI based installation which can take custom configuration changes like support for HTTPS certificate or SSL certificate.

What do you like best?

RedHat Jboss Enterprise is a fully fledged Java application platform that is very dynamic. It can be extremely robust and versatile at the same time. The entire documentation from RedHat is very thorough and detailed and covers every aspect you can possibly imagine. The updates for Jboss Enterprise has also been very steady and new features are being pushed out with every minor/major versions with constant performance improvements. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Jboss server logging could use a bit more work. When multiple applications are deployed on the same platform, server logs usually get overcrowded and its very hard to debug application or platform level issues under such circumstances. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it out, the learning curve may be a little bit steep at first but its well worth the effort and time. Your time in learning Jboss Enterprise wont go to waste for the next 20 years and I highly recommended any Java developer to look at Jboss as their primary deployment platform. You will not look back! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We utilize Jboss Enterprise platform as the standard application platform to deploy our java applications. These applications cover all aspect of the financial industry and are both customer-facing and internal-facing. With jboss enterprise, we know that we have a standard platform to develop and to deploy on among the entire development teams across the corporation; and as usual, RedHat offers excellent support service with their offerings. We have standardized our deployment practices and our server environments through the use of jboss enterprise, making infrastructure level and development level maintenance much more streamlined and standardized.

What do you like best?

JBoss is fairly easy to set up compared to other application servers. It has a short start up time and has less configuration issues compared to WebSphere or WebLogic. There are some oddities when dealing with REST libraries, but you have all expected features working properly on the platform. Our applications were easy to deploy and debug when things went wrong most of the time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The technical support often felt underwhelming. When dealing with support staff, we would often be asked to write a sample application displaying the issue, however it seems that the support personal often could not deploy our application. The administration of the platform also felt incomplete, as the UI did not meet up with the CLI interface in all instances. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Evaluate what systems you need to integrate into JBoss before deciding to move forward with the product. External systems sometimes were easy to integrate, other times were much more difficult. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Our goal for the company was to move toward a standard method of deployment via all our applications. The company moved toward the J2EE standard and looked at multiple platforms. The most stable and functioning of all that we tried was definitely JBoss, specifically the enterprise platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

JBoss is java EE 7 certified and has great features for cloud ready applications like high availibility, clustering, and even distributed caching. This makes it much easier to scale out enterprise wide and feel comfortable knowing JBoss will perform Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

JBoss has gone through quite a bit of updates recently and it does take some time to learn new functionality and the value behind it Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Very robust application server. It has native support for J2EE and most features that I was looking for. everything worked right out of the box seamlessly with minimal configuration. Also ongoing maintenance was simple. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The cost is a little bit higher than expected; however, the quality of the product justifies the cost. Hence it was a non-issue at my organization when we upgrade with the regular version of JBoss to this enterprise edition. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Very good application server technology. Robust, easy to use with a nice admin UI. Never did we end up with downtime or any OOM issue (besides ones that is cause by bad code) once we started hosting our application via JBOSS. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Hosting scalable web services as well as web applications. Benefits was excellent uptime, robust infrastructure and ease of use/integration. Also we never ran into any OOM issue or unexpected downtime. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Configuration takes a bit of a learning curve. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Commonly available. Community edition simplifies developer use. We have standardized on this for all our demo situations. Because of the widespread usage, many customers are comfortable going with it, and it is not a hard sell in order to distribute my products on it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Unnecessarily complex. Minimal thought have been given to a clean, rational, easy to use form. But that somewhat comes with the territory. Most of the competition is just as unruly. In the jump from version 5 to version 6 they did not support compatibility, and the installer generally had to be 100% rewritten. That is annoying, and can be excused once if they get into a format that they can guarantee going forward. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Don't skimp on the training. That will cost you something, but the software is then relatively inexpensive -- at least for non production use. The tradeoff is that you have to train well to get the most out of it Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Supporting applications in a reliable way. Clustering support. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It s the best software with all the competitive features and with low or no cost to buy and little cost for support. It now I have been using this for running one application and the stability is good as compared to other software that are much costlier. I would say this one can beat the other competitors with some improvements in features. Stable environment setup. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing much about it to dislike, Only some improvements must have made. I would say some clustering features would be good to improve on. Although it has the clustering features but those needs to be improved for more stability. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This can be used for light weight applications if you are seeing for some cost effectiveness. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We are hosting an application on Jboss, it is being run without any problems. It's cost effective. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
