WebLogic Suite Review

The cluster configuration and cluster performance are the most valuable features for us.


What is most valuable?

The cluster configuration and cluster performance are the most valuable features for us. In fact, they're better in this most recent version than in previous ones, making it a better solution overall.

What needs improvement?

Transactions monitoring graphics need to be improved. When I need to monitor sample transaction response times or something similar, I need to use third-party tools. I assume that it is possible to see transaction performances on the WebLogic console with some graphics, so I'd like to have that feature.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using WebLogic for 10 years, and v12.1.3 for the last year.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

If the packet is bigger than 800MB, then the deployment is very, very difficult with the Weblogic admin console. To make this work, we have to use wlst.sh scripts to deploy.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have had no issues with the stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There have been no issues scaling it for our needs.

How are customer service and technical support?

Oracle Support is perfect for their Database, but for WebLogic/CC&B it is not so good, and for that I give it a 6/10.

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

I have used many application servers, and this is the best for performance and for a user-friendly management console.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

I have implemented it both through a vendor team and through our in-house team.

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

Due to the exchange rate, it is expensive for Turkish companies.

What other advice do I have?

It gives good performance, but we still have to use third-party tools for monitoring. You should take that into consideration when deciding whether to purchase it.

We have used WebLogic over 10+ years. It is a very good and stable application server. The patching and upgrading processes are seamless. However, whenever we submit a service call and/or bug, it takes awhile for the support team to respond.
