More Magic xpa Application Platform Pros »

"Web apps are very easy to deploy.""The most valuable feature of this solution is that it supports Java Enterprise.""Tomcat is user-friendly and easy to set up, especially compared to WebLogic or JBoss where some specialty is required. If you are going for Tomcat, you can use their guidelines and can set it up easily.""We chose to use Tomcat because it's perfect compared to other containers that we have tested.""The most valuable features of this solution are the general web server features.""The most valuable feature is the free EE server."

More Tomcat Pros »

Cons
"The user interface could be improved to be more friendly for developers."

More Magic xpa Application Platform Cons »

"I would personally like it if the admin console would show more information specifically about memory being used.""The high availability is not as robust as the competition is such as WebLogic and Jboss.""Tomcat is used mainly for database connections. As of now, we configure that environment for any database configuration. But if any utility can integrate where we can pass the database connection as a string of details, then it should encrypt them and keep them inside. From that security perspective, Tomcat requires improvement. They should integrate this security feature.""The interface is not user-friendly.""Technical support is limited.""In the solution, we are using the terminal to enter command line codes for operations and management, this is difficult for me. It would be better if we had some administrator UI tools for this."

Pricing and Cost Advice
