What is most valuable?

I have seen a few implementations where the JBoss application server is used. Initially, the applications were hosted on licensed servers like IBM WebSphere and BEA WebLogic. But, due to the license cost, we advised our client to shift to an open source application server. With open source, we had a choice of going with Apache Tomcat and JBoss. We chose JBoss as it's far more scalable, secure and… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Compared to IBM and BEA, JBoss provides the best support in the virtualized environment, and it also comes with multiple configurations which help in easy roll-out of the applications.

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

The earlier application servers - IBM/BEA - had a very huge license cost. Moreover, the cost went up as we wanted to scale the application for more users. Also, the application servers comes with poor support in virtualized environment.

What is most valuable?

The class loader isolation is good.

What needs improvement?

The deployment of data sources could be improved.

Keep the systems simple. Try to work with open-source solutions and pay for technical support and subscription to support the projects.

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

We switched because of the nature of the application and technology.

What other advice do I have?

What is most valuable?

This open source Application server is a good choice for Enterprises using J2EE . This gives much better value than Websphere and Weblogic. Easy to setup and self contained software. The product offers advanced J2EE features like queues and topics. Also provides for failover, high availability, support. Webserver can directly communicate with the database, Much cheaper implementation.

What needs improvement?

Level of customization is low as compared to other competitive products.Runtime diagnostics and DR (Disaster Recovery) features are limited as compared to Weblogic and Websphere. Since oracle now has Weblogic , they are introducing integration of other products like coherence into it.

What other advice do I have?

We chose JBossas it scales well, supports multiple nodes redundancy and has an integrated Tomcat which can be customized.The price is a big plus and out of the box implementation is good. Most people are skeptical to run Enterprise applications with ope source jboss.

What is JBoss?

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP), a market-leading, fully certified Java EE platform, gives you a single platform to quickly develop and deploy applications. Use traditional Red Hat JBoss EAP to gain business agility with your existing applications and reduce the costs of proprietary platforms.
