WebLogic Suite Review

User-friendly Admin features, easy to implement and reliable

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature to us is its user friendliness as well as its admin features, which are much better then the previous versions of Oracle.

How has it helped my organization?

First of all, what we do is, we have some products which run on WebLogic. They're really great, in the sense that we have never found a bug or the like. It's just very easy to implement. It's been going great. There are really no issues at all.

What needs improvement?

I am not a very techy guy, though I know how to use the product. Areas for improvement should come from my developer.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's pretty stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It has scaled well to our needs over time.

How are customer service and technical support?

When you open a ticket it is resolved in a timely fashion, absolutely. Obviously Oracle has a an advanced process with these things, like the priority of the service request. Based on that it is resolved. We're happy with how it gets prioritized and the service we're getting.

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

The previous version was called Oracle Application Server. That was the one we used. That used to have a lot of issues. 

After Oracle started pitching on WebLogic, things were really great. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't consider any other vendors along the way. We are Oracle partners and we are very happy with this. We will continue with them.

What other advice do I have?

I would say out of the servers that we have used - one is an Apache Tomcat which is Open Source, which we typically use for demos and other things; and then the WebLogic, and then the Oracle Application Server. These are the three things we have used. I rate WebLogic at least a nine out of 10.

I would say I'm very happy with it and I would recommend using this product. However, if you want to use Oracle Apache Tomcat, that is also something which works great. The only thing with Open Source is, as long as long as it's working great, it's great. But, there is a possibility that if something goes wrong you will need support. The support will cost as much as buying WebLogic.

It's always better to go with Oracle, where you know what you are getting and you will get good support. That way, I would recommend WebLogic.
