Robust middle tier to deploy Oracle applications

What do you like best?

- Ease of deployment

- Fully supported by Oracle - and comes free with any oracle database

- Ease of administration of the tool and applications deployed within weblogic

- Enhanced logging and debugging functionality

What do you dislike?

- Oracle specific (which is good and bad)

- Sometimes the debug messages can be cryptic

- Steep learning curve for application administration via weblogic

Recommendations to others considering the product

Web logic plays quite well with other Oracle applications (guess it is an Oracle product). Using it with Oracle APEX extended the capabilities of the tool. You can now use web logic to integrate with other services such as Apache FOP to generate PDFs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We deployed Oracle APEX within Oracle web logic and enabled REST web service capabilities within APEX. This allowed us to segregate the application from the database layer (more like an MVC framework) - and allowed us to use weblogic to interact and create RESTful services to interact with data

Very robust if you know how to use it

What do you like best?

The admin console is extremely robust and you can monitor things that you can't in a less robust app server like tomcat, etc.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how weblogic does clusterinf additionally the CPU footprint is ridiculous

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Oracle weblogic to host Oracle Integration Cloud which solves our SOA needs

Oracle made this robust application server unbeatable

What do you like best?

Oracle weblogic as per me is the best application server to host our applications. Easy deployments, clustering capabilities make this a best software. Oracle did a good job after acquiring this weblogic server from BEA. I used to use this application server right from the BEA days and now I see this has become stable and when we moved from Sun to Linux operating system, we even observed better performance using this oracle weblogic server.

What do you dislike?

Some of the major draw backs of this Oracle weblogic is that we don't have a graphical tool to develop our scripts. We use wlst scripting tool which is provided by oracle itself, but looking forward to get some kind of graphical tool that can build all the scripts required.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best applications server if you are looking to host your business application with zero outage and 24/7 availability

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Hosting the application on this weblogic application server.

Oracle Weblogic

What do you like best?

Graphical console to manage most features. Multiple managed servers.

What do you dislike?

Byzantine complexity. Although there is a ton of documentation, it's not very useful. There are a ton of security issues and fixing them is not well documented.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd look elsewhere. Oracle licensing is draconian (I call it the Hotel California model - you can check out any time you want but you can never leave) and obscenely expensive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've used it for our Liferay portal and running a number of java web applications.

Good App Server but lacks good installation documentation

What do you like best?

It works pretty good once installed or when installed as it is out-of-the box. It works well for web applications particularly Java applications and it's fast, scalable and stable.

What do you dislike?

The installation documentation is not straightforward. Need to go through different docs to be able to install it efficiently. It doesn't provide clear steps to follow in case one wants only to use some of its features, for example, JMS or if issues are encountered. Technical help and support are minimal. It makes me think there's no expertise available in their technical support.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a tight deadline, get an expert to help in the implementation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Deployment of Web applications as well as High availability for said applications

A must Application server to host the applications of any kind

What do you like best?

The varied features it offers but best is the Weblogic console and WLST which is becoming secure and informative by each version release.

What do you dislike?

Didn't .like the feature of encrypting passwords for SSL certs while browsing through WLST.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving variety of business problems like we are using customized oracle weblogic apps such as RMS, RIB and RPM. We have also worked on RPAS solution. I have worked from version 10.3.0 through 11 g and currently working on 12.1.3 and 12.2.1. Have also integrated to use ADF with 12.1.3 and 12.2.1. We have also enabled Okta single sign on using Weblogic 12.2.1 and 12.1.3.
