Flexibility and versatility make this product valuable while quarterly updates may impact stability

What is our primary use case?

Primarily we deploy WebLogic both as an in-house and a private cloud-hosted server solution for our customers. We have got a couple of different use cases as per specific clients. Our personal use case is just to understand its functionality deploy it to adapt to client needs.

Pros and Cons

  • "The product is flexible and allows us to leverage deployments."
  • "The quarterly updates can sometimes lead to instability depending on the configuration of systems."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to people considering WebLogic as a solution is to do the same thing that we do right now and what we make sure our clients do. Doing due diligence is not really an option. You have to make sure that a solution — any solution you are considering — matches up with the use cases you are planning to deploy it for. There is no point in investing in the wrong solution. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Oracle WebLogic Server as a seven or eight. If I had to choose between those, I would say seven. It could easily be better and that really…

Integrates well, scalable, but difficult to customize

What is our primary use case?

We are using Oracle WebCenter content to store our enterprise documentation. We want to create a database warehouse to hold all the document information and to allow someone access to any of the documents. This will be a single gateway where someone can check-in and check-out the documents.

Pros and Cons

  • "The technical support is responsive. They are always ready to help by various communication channels, such as Zoom calls. However, sometimes it will take a while because when we are dealing with a problem, they need to look at the logs and configuration. A lot of the issues are related to the configuration that they need to look at thoroughly before they can give us a solution and it can take a few days depending on the type of problem."
  • "If you want to use Oracle products to the fullest with enhanced customizations, you need to get trained. There is enough documentation and the flexibility to configure the application to your needs but you will need to spend more time gathering the knowledge."

What other advice do I have?

Those wanting to implement this solution will need to check what their desired functionality specific to the implementation is and if it in fact the solution can satisfy the purpose. For example, if the solution can operate without customization, and if so, you can relax and do the implementation easily. However, if your implementation requires a lot of customization changes, such as changing the behavior or the skin, it will not be straightforward. You will need to spend a lot of time getting the knowledge to do the customizations. I rate Oracle WebLogic Server a six out of ten.

Performs well and has good integration with security features, but we're having trouble with stability

What is our primary use case?

We are a software solution provider and I am a Java software developer. When I deploy my work, I use an application server like Oracle WebLogic. We have not deployed this product for our own use, but rather for a client. It is being used as a SOAP solution for a backend service for a BASE24-eps ACI product.

Pros and Cons

  • "It has good integration with security features, including OWASP."
  • "In the future, I would like to see better support for the REST interface."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

Is stable and scalable but not easy to manage

What is our primary use case?

We use Oracle WebLogic Server on our e-commerce webpage to manage and monitor it.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's a very stable solution."
  • "The administration is hard, and it is more complex to use than others."

What other advice do I have?

My advice is that you should test the performance after the installation. You may struggle while starting the application. You can analyze deeply how to manage Oracle WebLogic Server and how to set up the configurations. It's a little complex. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate this solution at six.
