Dan MarinBranch Technical Manager at a computer software company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We only use the basic features, but the most valuable one for us is the Publish-subscribe pattern."
"The solution has good integration."
"Performance-wise, this solution is really good."
"Integration and mapping are easy, which is a major advantage."
"The most valuable features of this solution are scalability and performance."
"The solution is much lighter as an application server than other solutions that we used before. We used IBM Workshare Application Server and Oracle WebLogic. They are heavy application servers. JBoss is lighter. It starts faster and iterates its application fast. It's much, much faster than the competition."
"Stable and easy to handle in terms of hosting applications."
"Technical support is very slow and needs to be improved."
"The installation configuration is quite difficult."
"The images and size of the containers are too big and I think that they should be more lightweight."
"Technical support is good but they could have a better response time."
"This solution needs better management UI."
"IBM offered JAVA profiling, which is something I used often and I wish that JBoss had something similar."
"Lacks some functional requirements."
"The price is very high and it's the main reason that we are searching for alternatives."
"This product is more expensive than competing products."
"I feel with IBM, when you want certain functions or features, you have to continuously purchase add-ons. There are always additional fees."
