"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.

What Portals solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"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.

"Awesome tool for development "

What do you like best?

Jboss is a complete package for develop, test and deploy applications. It has great integration with openshift which saves lots of our time. You can connect your OSE projects in this tool itself and can view logs as well. You can use git close right in this tool. Lots of useful features and very fast tool.

What do you dislike?

Jboss have all good features we need, I dont see any issues with this tool.

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

I am using this to develop our Apis in openshift environment.

"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.

"It works for what it is designed to do, but feels very clunky for today's requirements"

What do you like best?

It's very easy to deploy to it without restarting, most of the time.

What do you dislike?

It's slow, takes forever to start, uses a lot of memory, it's possible to get it to crash, sometimes it doesn't find dependencies in the jar files, sometimes just deploying war files doesn't work and it needs to be restarted. Its configuration is quite complex.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Think twice if you really need this mammoth in your stack.

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

Deploying business solution. The primary benefit is that it makes PM feel confident due to its solid track record of powering large enterprises. Can't say the same about developers.

"jboss is a bit heavy, monolithic"

What do you like best?

jboss is secure, works well in a clustered environment

What do you dislike?

it's slow, takes a long time to start up, has a major footprint

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would strongly consider moving to a more lightweight server infrastructure if you can. jboss is ok for what it is, but most of it seems for big monolithic applications in a world where we're moving towards light weight web apps. look at cloud foundry with spring boot, etc.

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

we use jboss as our primary app server technology for our application in the automotive industry. we connect to apache web servers and mysql databases.

"Fantastic Open Source Web Server"

What do you like best?

My experience with the Red Hat JBoss revolves around the web server software that they provide. I love that it is an open-source, free software solution. It has allowed myself and the rest of my development team to stand up a web server that we can use for development purposes. It is easily deployed on a local machine or a server on the local network.

What do you dislike?

Configuration can be a bit confusing, especially for newer users. There are some settings that can cause issues on various platforms, such as OSX. I've also experienced some issues when upgrading JBoss versions (even minor ones) that usually relate to configuration.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As with almost all other open source software, take advantage of the community support for any problems or questions that you have with JBoss.

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

Allowing our development team to stand up a local web server for testing and continued development.

"Its been a good experience using Jboss"

What do you like best?

CLI is very system admin style

configuration file is very convinient

It starts really fast.

Easy to be added in application installation script

Creating a new server by simply copying the default instance

What do you dislike?

You can't have two different versions of JBoss on the same OS

If you use RPMs, Jboss is exploded all over the place, it follows the Unix conventions for deploying applications, but you end up looking everywhere for jboss

Having JBoss installed from RH repositories the app admin is dependent on unix admins for updates

Recommendations to others considering the product

A good application server to have which is comparatively easier to deploy and not complex to manage.

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

I am running financial software with jboss. The benefit I am getting is to use the Jboss Installation script with my application installation files to avoid complications to the customers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try it for a period of 2 months and then you can make your own criteria for choosing this software ahead the others you use.

the production deployment of applications
