What do you like best?

Wildfly is very easy to use, a developer can configure its java based web application without having to worry much about the configuration. The developer can then test the application locally before it is installed in production level. In production, Wildfly handles request efficiently and the throughput is great. Since it is a widely used application server, the community can help configuring Wildfly. Chances are that that configuration was already done previously. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Starting Wildlfy is a bit slow and the logs could be improved in order to debug errors that occur Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

At the company where I used to work until recently, wildfly is used locally with a wildfly docker image to do integration tests by developers. And across different environment, I.e. testing and production, it is used to deploy web applications. Wildfly is robust and it rarely caused problems Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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?

This is a Java-based application server that is used to run microservices. It's run on a java platform and its configuration and installation are very user-friendly. We could manage it through GUI and CLI both but need good knowledge to manage from CLI. Its deployment is easy and the user can deploy it from the web interface as well as from CLI. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some time JBoss stopped suddenly and then the user has to restart it. but its' happen in rare cases. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If any organization need to run Java-based application to run microservices then this is the best for them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

My experience with JBoss EAP is fascinating - specifically EAP 7.1, where they provided a graphical management console and an out of the box support for mod_cluster and load balancing, which made my life a lot easier. It's really open and supports everything I needed - either out of the box or with a simple tweak. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not a big thing - but the error messages aren't that helpful, and sometimes the community itself gets confused by the error. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

To go with the latest version, as the changes made between each release and the next is HUGE. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

JBoss EAP is an application platform mainly used as an application server, but also provides other modules/subsystems which makes it provide the functionality of a messaging queue, a load balancer, a gateway, or even a firewall. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Jboss is a complete package for develop, test and deploy applications. It has great integration with openshift which saves lots of our time. You can connect your OSE projects in this tool itself and can view logs as well. You can use git close right in this tool. Lots of useful features and very fast tool.

What I like most is the stability it provides, it supports large loads of requests from multiple users and rarely gets out of line, has a great capacity to balance the loads. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like very much is that I think it can improve by increasing the documentation to facilitate the problems of continuous integration to the developers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

jBoss offers a ton of flexibility in its application platform. It is easy to get up and running and there is plenty of documentation and forums on the internet to help figure things out. jBoss is also very stable and easy to upgrade as well. So far we have been very impressed with this product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike about jBoss. The only thing that I can say is that there are so many plugins, both third party and Red Hat built, that it can be a bit overwhelming when you are first getting jBoss up and running. You also need to be very proficient in Linux in order to administer this product - so you will definitely need to have a savvy RHEL administrator on staff. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

jBoss has brought a lot of stability to our application development platform. Our developers are able to collaborate on new projects easier and we get new enhancements turned around faster so our business users are happy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

And, yes... Jboss/wildfly should be default web server for java web applications. Is an open source Java EE application server implemented in pure Java, specifically the Java EE specification. Being Java-based, JBoss can be used on any operating system for which the Java virtual machine is available. WildFly is free and open source software, subject to the requirements of the GNU Lesser General Public License. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Wel, it is not perfect. All you can see es lines and lines of code, errors, warnings, information, all is text in a console. It need a configuration that is not for beginners, at least not alone beginners, without an expert helper. If yo need to apply styles, be patient, consult the web and go ahead with this arduous (and hard, if you use faces) task. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you need to run web applications developed with java, do not hesitate and use jboss / wildfly, the initial configuration is puco ruda at the beginning then you get used to it and finally it is routine. It does not need servers of great magnitude and you can always count on your console to control your log. Besides, it has its web interface, where you can configure many things, like datasource, drivers, deploys, etc. IT'S FREE. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Five years ago, when i start to development in java web applications i needed ans erver that can run those, and find jboos. This along with the help of communities on the web, allowed my applications to come to life and be used by my clients. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

it's slow, takes a long time to start up, has a major footprint Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would strongly consider moving to a more lightweight server infrastructure if you can. jboss is ok for what it is, but most of it seems for big monolithic applications in a world where we're moving towards light weight web apps. look at cloud foundry with spring boot, etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It's very easy to deploy to it without restarting, most of the time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's slow, takes forever to start, uses a lot of memory, it's possible to get it to crash, sometimes it doesn't find dependencies in the jar files, sometimes just deploying war files doesn't work and it needs to be restarted. Its configuration is quite complex. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Maybe there's a lot of things that jBoss is doing great--in general, it does the job serving the needs of our application. But because of the terrible things that I experienced myself with using JBoss, it all boils down to those Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Developers point of view--JBoss is not very easy to use upfront. It has complications and is not very user friendly. It takes a lot of things to get it up and running. Not very lightweight. Full iteration takes so much time and effort because of need to restart the server. "Hot deploy" almost always don't work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are a lot of reasons not to use jBoss. It is not simple to set up and even more on development time. I wouldn't say jBoss is very reliable in serving up the needs of an application. Therefore, It adds up to developers burden. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

JBoss is much faster, cheaper and more solid and innovative then the IBM or Oracle's alternatives. JBoss in the free version works and the pay one adds a few more features and support.

JBoss always works perfect on Linux and is very scalable. I really like that it doesn't require too much configuration. Really a few settings for your apps and for a database.

Undertow the HTTP engine is really fast and works great. This is a nice choice to use for running jars instead of Jetty. This is worth the price of admissions and is really fast. You have to love Redhat and Jboss for all the work they do for Java and JEE. They are the only independent voice pro enterprise java these days. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

They keep the open source version a little behind the EAP pay version. Also sometimes there's issues with data connection pooling and i've had some crashing. Logging to check things can get ridiculous and if you send that too splunk it could cost you a ton of money as the megabytes of log files can build up in seconds. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Download it and try it. Try it for a local project, good replacement for tomcat or jetty. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Running ecommerce applications for a large book store. And it worked. Just as good as brand DB and brand Blue.

It is a pleasure to develop with jboss, you can run it local or on a server or through eclipse. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

My experience with the Red Hat JBoss revolves around the web server software that they provide. I love that it is an open-source, free software solution. It has allowed myself and the rest of my development team to stand up a web server that we can use for development purposes. It is easily deployed on a local machine or a server on the local network. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Configuration can be a bit confusing, especially for newer users. There are some settings that can cause issues on various platforms, such as OSX. I've also experienced some issues when upgrading JBoss versions (even minor ones) that usually relate to configuration. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As with almost all other open source software, take advantage of the community support for any problems or questions that you have with JBoss. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

You can't have two different versions of JBoss on the same OS

If you use RPMs, Jboss is exploded all over the place, it follows the Unix conventions for deploying applications, but you end up looking everywhere for jboss

Having JBoss installed from RH repositories the app admin is dependent on unix admins for updates Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
