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."
"It offers good support for various types of classes, along with many open source libraries that we can readily utilize in our application development process. This gives us a lot of options when it comes to custom development solutions, without having to worry about licensing or other programming-related issues."
"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."
"In terms of improvement, it doesn't support concurrent processing. When we want to process anything on a concurrent basis, we have to divide it into a number of things, like a queue, or we have to run it using Cron jobs. We would like to have the capability to run any thread or process in parallel."
"The Zend PHP engine is open source technology, so there's no need for us to worry about licensing or other costs."
