Default java web app

What do you like best?

And, yes... Jboss/wildfly should be default web server for java web applications. Is an open source Java EE application server implemented in pure Java, specifically the Java EE specification. Being Java-based, JBoss can be used on any operating system for which the Java virtual machine is available. WildFly is free and open source software, subject to the requirements of the GNU Lesser General Public License.

What do you dislike?

Wel, it is not perfect. All you can see es lines and lines of code, errors, warnings, information, all is text in a console. It need a configuration that is not for beginners, at least not alone beginners, without an expert helper. If yo need to apply styles, be patient, consult the web and go ahead with this arduous (and hard, if you use faces) task.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to run web applications developed with java, do not hesitate and use jboss / wildfly, the initial configuration is puco ruda at the beginning then you get used to it and finally it is routine. It does not need servers of great magnitude and you can always count on your console to control your log. Besides, it has its web interface, where you can configure many things, like datasource, drivers, deploys, etc. IT'S FREE.

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

Five years ago, when i start to development in java web applications i needed ans erver that can run those, and find jboos. This along with the help of communities on the web, allowed my applications to come to life and be used by my clients.

an excellent server for JAVA web applications, I always use it is quite robust and reliable.

What do you like best?

What I like most is the stability it provides, it supports large loads of requests from multiple users and rarely gets out of line, has a great capacity to balance the loads.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like very much is that I think it can improve by increasing the documentation to facilitate the problems of continuous integration to the developers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend this server to the development community.

It is highly stable and reliable and above all easy to use. it's great.

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

Use Jboss for the first time to develop a logistics system based on Java technology, jsf and restfull web services. and I really liked the performance of the server throughout the project.

jBoss Review

What do you like best?

jBoss offers a ton of flexibility in its application platform. It is easy to get up and running and there is plenty of documentation and forums on the internet to help figure things out. jBoss is also very stable and easy to upgrade as well. So far we have been very impressed with this product.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike about jBoss. The only thing that I can say is that there are so many plugins, both third party and Red Hat built, that it can be a bit overwhelming when you are first getting jBoss up and running. You also need to be very proficient in Linux in order to administer this product - so you will definitely need to have a savvy RHEL administrator on staff.

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

jBoss has brought a lot of stability to our application development platform. Our developers are able to collaborate on new projects easier and we get new enhancements turned around faster so our business users are happy.

A Pain To Use For Developers

What do you like best?

Maybe there's a lot of things that jBoss is doing great--in general, it does the job serving the needs of our application. But because of the terrible things that I experienced myself with using JBoss, it all boils down to those

What do you dislike?

Developers point of view--JBoss is not very easy to use upfront. It has complications and is not very user friendly. It takes a lot of things to get it up and running. Not very lightweight. Full iteration takes so much time and effort because of need to restart the server. "Hot deploy" almost always don't work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are a lot of reasons not to use jBoss. It is not simple to set up and even more on development time. I wouldn't say jBoss is very reliable in serving up the needs of an application. Therefore, It adds up to developers burden.

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

We need aJ2EE application server that is scalable AND offers ease of use for developers as well.

JBoss for JEE apps

What do you like best?

JBoss is much faster, cheaper and more solid and innovative then the IBM or Oracle's alternatives. JBoss in the free version works and the pay one adds a few more features and support.

JBoss always works perfect on Linux and is very scalable. I really like that it doesn't require too much configuration. Really a few settings for your apps and for a database.

Undertow the HTTP engine is really fast and works great. This is a nice choice to use for running jars instead of Jetty. This is worth the price of admissions and is really fast. You have to love Redhat and Jboss for all the work they do for Java and JEE. They are the only independent voice pro enterprise java these days.

What do you dislike?

They keep the open source version a little behind the EAP pay version. Also sometimes there's issues with data connection pooling and i've had some crashing. Logging to check things can get ridiculous and if you send that too splunk it could cost you a ton of money as the megabytes of log files can build up in seconds.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Download it and try it. Try it for a local project, good replacement for tomcat or jetty.

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

Running ecommerce applications for a large book store. And it worked. Just as good as brand DB and brand Blue.

It is a pleasure to develop with jboss, you can run it local or on a server or through eclipse.

Nice and stablish Java Server

What do you like best?

JBoss is an Application Server java-based designed that offers the same features as others proprietary servers for less than a thenth of the cost with excellent support for common enterprise practices and specifications.

What do you dislike?

Probably, one of the worst thing is the documentations ,is not good and sometimes difficult to find.

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

In our enterprise we have solved all production deployment, it is fast, easy to maintain, escale and configurable.
