What is most valuable?

We use it to build integrations for customers. It has a broad set of tools for handling SOAP and REST integrations to FTP, files, and JMS depending on need.

How has it helped my organization?

For customers, we have often made integrations from batch processing to propagating changes in a few seconds. With the integration platform in place, it is easier and quicker to make the integrations they need.

What needs improvement?

There is always room for improvement, but it has shown a continuous growth in functionality. Nevertheless, the stability when used with JDeveloper needs improvement.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using it for six to seven years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

There have been no issues deploying it.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The product is stable, but we have seen less stability with JDeveloper.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It contains good options for handling scalability. We haven't had issues scaling it as necessary.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is good and available, but you need to know how Oracle Support works to get the best help.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We had no other solution in place.

How was the initial setup?

Setup of the development environment has become a lot easier, as has the production environment. For the production environment, I would recommend someone who has done this before.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing has been an issue for smaller customers. Fortunately, the cloud will now give more options.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No other options were looked at.

What other advice do I have?

There is an active community -- read blogs and books, and attend conferences, and training, or work side-by-side with someone who knows the product. Also, plan the architecture well.
