What is most valuable?

The feature that I have found to be the most valuable is the ease of deployment. In the beginning, you do tend to struggle a bit, but once it's deployed, then everything falls into place and maintaining it is quite simple.

What needs improvement?

It is difficult to say which features can be improved at the moment, as we are not working with the most current version and I am not aware of the features offered in the new version. Once we catch up and move on to version 12C, we need to see what can be migrated to the cloud. It might not be… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Previously, we used the IBM product called WebSphere. WebSphere and WebLogic are both very similar. They have the same purpose, the same end. I liked the way WebLogic is compartmentalized in the server where you can go and find the configurations, and see it on a file. It's fairly file-based, the… more»

What other advice do I have?

I am a subcontractor to Vodacom, and the company I work for is a vendor, and they are an approved vendor with Oracle. It is difficult to offer advice because every scenario is different, but I would suggest that you use the available expertise. There is a lot of expertise, don't try to do it all… more»

What is most valuable?

WebLogic is and has always been a leading application development platform even going back to the BEA days, so some of the great features that WebLogic provides is scalability, the ability to build very robust applications that can support… more»

How has it helped my organization?

A lot of times customers really have to consider 'do I want to use a solution like WebLogic or do I want to look at an opensource solution and what kind of app server container do I want to begin to look at.' Some of the great features that… more»

What needs improvement?

Probably some greater ability to support API management and some greater ability to do things like supporting Node.js. Obviously they have some of that already in there but just basically getting some additional programming languages so… more»

What other advice do I have?

I don't give anyone a ten but from an app server perspective, WebLogic is definitely going to be a 9 to a 9.5 because they've been in my opinion one of the leading app servers on the market today. They've been around for so long, they're… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Information to consider when choosing a vendor: Scalability, capacity planning and growth. Can the infrastructure support what the customer's needs are? Can they create applications faster? Is this a framework or a tool or a product set… more»

What is most valuable?

Ease of scalability through both asymmetric and symmetric clustering; ease of integration with existing and potential future Oracle product technologies; leverages many… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Provides a uniform technology platform between multiple application installations, whether Enterprise Resource Planning or Customer Relationship Management (ERP/CRM) based… more»

What needs improvement?

Cloning and replication (detailed below) could be much more flexible and standardized. WebLogic out-of-the-box installations are only templated and automated for… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

As an application platform, you will need to carefully forecast your overall user and process load, and service-level agreements (SLA) in order to purchase an appropriate… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We use a half-dozen different application server technologies - which one is used depends more on application compatibility than choosing one specific one-size-fits-all… more»

What other advice do I have?

Cloning and replication of WebLogic instances isn't exactly a rote science. Because the stacks become secured against the hosting environments, encapsulating and… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

As mentioned, we purchase based upon application-focus, and not for custom development. As a result, choice of application hosting technology is driven according to… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature to us is its user friendliness as well as its admin features, which are much better then the previous versions of Oracle.

How has it helped my organization?

First of all, what we do is, we have some products which run on WebLogic. They're really great, in the sense that we have never found a bug or the like. It's just very easy to implement. It's been… more»

What needs improvement?

I am not a very techy guy, though I know how to use the product. Areas for improvement should come from my developer.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

The previous version was called Oracle Application Server. That was the one we used. That used to have a lot of issues. After Oracle started pitching on WebLogic, things were really great.

What other advice do I have?

I would say out of the servers that we have used - one is an Apache Tomcat which is Open Source, which we typically use for demos and other things; and then the WebLogic, and then the Oracle… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't consider any other vendors along the way. We are Oracle partners and we are very happy with this. We will continue with them.

What is most valuable?

A valuable feature is its integration with Oracle Database. We have another system running Oracle Database which can be easily updated from the database and pushed to the middleware. Also, it easily… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It is connected with our systems, and our systems run on Oracle. It is beneficial because it integrates with our internal systems. This resolves half of our problems for our internal system… more»

What needs improvement?

We need to have more adapters and connectors, especially healthcare system adapters. This solution doesn't have connectors to other external applications. We connect with other vendors' and other… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

In general, it is a costly solution.

What other advice do I have?

I rate this solution as a seven out of 10, because it is not fully satisfying our needs. It is good in specific areas, but it's not satisfying all of our requirements. It is not a one stop shop. Most… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the update deployment feature. Update deployment is when you already have an application deployed and you want to handle a new deployment. The feature ensures you don't need to add or remove anything. Rather, you just need to update and the feature will handle everything… more»

What needs improvement?

I had issues when I installed the SSL. With WebLogic, it's a very lengthy process.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing for the solution is pretty expensive. It may be the most expensive solution, if you were to compare it to the competition.

What other advice do I have?

I'd suggest those considering implementing the solution to move to the cloud. It's very simple and easy. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
