"Excellent Product and highly recommended for enterprise use"

What do you like best?

This product is very easy to install and configure with manual changes. Also, there are active forums where you can get quick help.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike but there is a suggestion to improve UI based installation which can take custom configuration changes like support for HTTPS certificate or SSL certificate. Also, create standalone.xml file with all valid attributes leaving end user to update as per business needs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If possible, kindly provide a UI based installation which can take custom configuration changes like support for HTTPS certificate or SSL certificate. Also, create standalone.xml file with all valid attributes leaving end user to update as per business needs.

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

We are using JBoss enterprise server with custom configuration for our product. This is very easy to customize and configure and most important it is free to use.

"Excellent java application plateform, great support and stack, highly recommended for developers!"

What do you like best?

RedHat Jboss Enterprise is a fully fledged Java application platform that is very dynamic. It can be extremely robust and versatile at the same time. The entire documentation from RedHat is very thorough and detailed and covers every aspect you can possibly imagine. The updates for Jboss Enterprise has also been very steady and new features are being pushed out with every minor/major versions with constant performance improvements.

What do you dislike?

Jboss server logging could use a bit more work. When multiple applications are deployed on the same platform, server logs usually get overcrowded and its very hard to debug application or platform level issues under such circumstances.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out, the learning curve may be a little bit steep at first but its well worth the effort and time. Your time in learning Jboss Enterprise wont go to waste for the next 20 years and I highly recommended any Java developer to look at Jboss as their primary deployment platform. You will not look back!

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

We utilize Jboss Enterprise platform as the standard application platform to deploy our java applications. These applications cover all aspect of the financial industry and are both customer-facing and internal-facing. With jboss enterprise, we know that we have a standard platform to develop and to deploy on among the entire development teams across the corporation; and as usual, RedHat offers excellent support service with their offerings. We have standardized our deployment practices and our server environments through the use of jboss enterprise, making infrastructure level and development level maintenance much more streamlined and standardized.

"Product works as advertised"

What do you like best?

JBoss is fairly easy to set up compared to other application servers. It has a short start up time and has less configuration issues compared to WebSphere or WebLogic. There are some oddities when dealing with REST libraries, but you have all expected features working properly on the platform. Our applications were easy to deploy and debug when things went wrong most of the time.

What do you dislike?

The technical support often felt underwhelming. When dealing with support staff, we would often be asked to write a sample application displaying the issue, however it seems that the support personal often could not deploy our application. The administration of the platform also felt incomplete, as the UI did not meet up with the CLI interface in all instances.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Evaluate what systems you need to integrate into JBoss before deciding to move forward with the product. External systems sometimes were easy to integrate, other times were much more difficult.

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

Our goal for the company was to move toward a standard method of deployment via all our applications. The company moved toward the J2EE standard and looked at multiple platforms. The most stable and functioning of all that we tried was definitely JBoss, specifically the enterprise platform.

"A reliable application server"

What do you like best?

There is a lot of documentation all over the internet talking about almost any topic of this server: How can you configure a database pool? How can you activate security? etc...

What do you dislike?

It's not the fastest server in the world. Specially during the startup, if you need to use a lot of modules (datasources, EJBs, queue managers, and so on) don't expect it to start in less than 3-5 minutes.

Of course it might mean that your application is too big to be deployed fast enough.

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

It help us deploy a really big monolithic application built on top of EJBs specs.

"JBoss is good!"

What do you like best?

JBoss is java EE 7 certified and has great features for cloud ready applications like high availibility, clustering, and even distributed caching. This makes it much easier to scale out enterprise wide and feel comfortable knowing JBoss will perform

What do you dislike?

JBoss has gone through quite a bit of updates recently and it does take some time to learn new functionality and the value behind it

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are tons of available resources for JBoss so be prepared to spend a good amount of time learning about the api's and migration points

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

We were looking to reduce our deployment time across virtual environments.

"Robust application server"

What do you like best?

Very robust application server. It has native support for J2EE and most features that I was looking for. everything worked right out of the box seamlessly with minimal configuration. Also ongoing maintenance was simple.

What do you dislike?

The cost is a little bit higher than expected; however, the quality of the product justifies the cost. Hence it was a non-issue at my organization when we upgrade with the regular version of JBoss to this enterprise edition.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very good application server technology. Robust, easy to use with a nice admin UI. Never did we end up with downtime or any OOM issue (besides ones that is cause by bad code) once we started hosting our application via JBOSS.

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

Hosting scalable web services as well as web applications. Benefits was excellent uptime, robust infrastructure and ease of use/integration. Also we never ran into any OOM issue or unexpected downtime.

"Runs as expected"

What do you like best?

Commonly available. Community edition simplifies developer use. We have standardized on this for all our demo situations. Because of the widespread usage, many customers are comfortable going with it, and it is not a hard sell in order to distribute my products on it.

What do you dislike?

Unnecessarily complex. Minimal thought have been given to a clean, rational, easy to use form. But that somewhat comes with the territory. Most of the competition is just as unruly. In the jump from version 5 to version 6 they did not support compatibility, and the installer generally had to be 100% rewritten. That is annoying, and can be excused once if they get into a format that they can guarantee going forward.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't skimp on the training. That will cost you something, but the software is then relatively inexpensive -- at least for non production use. The tradeoff is that you have to train well to get the most out of it

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

Supporting applications in a reliable way. Clustering support.

"Jboss... The boss of Stability"

What do you like best?

It s the best software with all the competitive features and with low or no cost to buy and little cost for support. It now I have been using this for running one application and the stability is good as compared to other software that are much costlier. I would say this one can beat the other competitors with some improvements in features. Stable environment setup.

What do you dislike?

Nothing much about it to dislike, Only some improvements must have made. I would say some clustering features would be good to improve on. Although it has the clustering features but those needs to be improved for more stability.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This can be used for light weight applications if you are seeing for some cost effectiveness.

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

We are hosting an application on Jboss, it is being run without any problems. It's cost effective.

What do you like best?

light weight, does not take too much space, and good customization options using xml configuration files.

What do you dislike?

There isn't really anything to dislike. A very simple and light weight enterprise server that met all my requirements.

Recommendations to others considering the product

JBOSS is a very intuitive enterprise server. I found the capabilities of web application server to be in line with my deployment requirements. It's easy to setup, and very easy to configure via xml profiles. it is capable of hosting multiple web applications using different containers which is what made my deployments easy to manage.

Low cost application server for hosting J2EE application

"Solid enterprise grade application platform"

What do you like best?

Highly robust lots of great documentation. Leading industry standard of web application platform. We were using Apache Tomcat and switched to JBoss as we needed a more robust and established platform for a very high volume OTLP application.

What do you dislike?

Configuration takes a bit of a learning curve.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For those looking for a robust and performant application platform that can handle multiple high volume OTLP applications, Jboss Enterprise will not be a mistake.

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

Wanted a very robust and high performance application platform. JBoss gave us the high standards and best practices in developing OTLP applications.
