What do you like best?

The easiness with which we can get started and the stability of the product. Right from downloading and installing to deploying an enterprise grade web app - The easiness that Wildfly provides, is absolutely worth a mention. I have also evaluated multiple paid / commercial app servers as well as open source servers. I would rate Wildfly as one among the best. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

So far, I could not find any reason why I should dislike Wildfly. If there is one minor thing then it might be the amount of memory it consumes while running. But then when you are dealing with an enterprise grade application server, you cannot complain much about this. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you need something quick and stable, you can just blindly trust this server. There is no way it is going to let you down. I have personally used and recommended Wildfly in multiple applications and projects and the reason why I keep recommending Wildfly again is the amazing amount of productivity you can achieve by opting for this. You would not be wasting time on unnecessary issues and you can focus on your technical needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I need a stable and robust application server to host my web applications. I have evaluated multiple servers and found it easy to deal with Wildfly Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The main admin console is very user friendly.

Especially after wildfly 18, the server restart process is also very very fast. Previously in wildfly 10, it will take lot of time on server restart. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not dislike actually, may be my less knowledge of wildfly

In Apache, there is a server directory, where we can just put a html file, and we can access that path directly from url.

In wildfly, I need to add that path from standalone file.

And also wildfly upgradation task may can improved. If possible by simple a path file or something, instead of the reconfigured the whole server! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Stablity. In my experience with wildfly, I have never faced any issue on the server due to AS or blocked while changing the configuration. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

There was a time when we faced a JDBC connection issue after a few hours of server start on our production server. By observing wildfly's admin console, we came to know what is the main reason behind the issue and resolved it within a few hours. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

On the company I've worked until recently, we used Wildfly at different stages of product development.

Then in the testing and production environments, we used Wildfly to host our web applications. It was always very reliable and it rarely caused errors. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I have been using Jboss application servers for almost 6 years (AS and EAP servers). I used to deploy my java applications in Jboss and tomcat servers. When wildfly (8) was released I did not hesitate to move to it. According to my experience the features and performance are greatly enhanced in the wildfly server Also as per my experience the server is very robust and stable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I did not come across any critical issues while using Wildfly. However I wish if the management console could be enhanced. I used oracle 12c server and I felt its UI is richer. Its better of Wildfly developers can enhance the UI some more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Wildfly solved a lot of my problems. I will mention couple of them.

6 years back we wanted a robust app server with enterprise container to deploy our EJB applications. We did a re search and proposed Wildfly. Because it was so easy for us to deploy, maintain our heavy weight EJB applications. The app server (Glassfish) which we were using was not very stable and we faced a lot of down times. Hence our clients were pushing us to get the issue fixed. With minimum of application level changes we could re deploy our applications on Wildfly server and then system outages did not happen. Our server admins informed that the management of this new app server is very convenient. Also recently I was looking for a front end load balancing mechanism and i ended up using the new load balancing profile of wildfly and it solved my problem completely.
