We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"I think installation only took a couple of minutes — no more than 10 minutes."
"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 scaling should be built into the software rather than configured from an outside source."
"Compared to other similar solutions on the market, I think it's over-priced."
