Rated 4 out of 5 by from For administration purposes, it offers a robust and easy-to-understand interface. Valuable Features:Technologically, the product offers excellent performance and high reliability. Because it is an application platform on which applications and products are deployed, these are probably among the most important features. For administration purposes, it also offers a robust and easy-to-understand interface. Performance monitoring tools are also comprehensive.Use of Solution:I have used it for four years.Deployment Issues:It is a complex product with many "moving parts". Installation, upgrade and patching are probably the most challenging administration tasks. Individual components may need to be upgraded to support the deployed applications, and yet these components and their patch level have to be compatible with each other. One should not underestimate the human administration requirements for the product, although these are not that far out of line when compared with similar products. This can be somewhat complex technology.Technical Support:Oracle Technical Support tends to be excellent in general, and that extends to this product as well.Initial Setup:Initial setup is straightforward, but as noted, ongoing maintenance requires a significant investment in time, effort and technical administration expertise.Implementation Team:As an IT consulting firm, we handled implementation in-house. A full range of in-depth skills are needed, especially in troubleshooting issues and for ongoing maintenance. One needs not only senior-level WebLogic Server experience, but also experience in the related technologies such as Java, virtual machines, Linux OS, among others.ROI:Once again, the model for Oracle technology in general, applies to this product. For the most part, Oracle is a technology leader in the functionality of the products it delivers, such as this application server, the database server, BI and analytics and others. But they are also among the more expensive for initial licensing and for ongoing product support. The products likewise require a high level of expertise. It is clearly a high-end, enterprise-scale solution, and pricing reflects this. At the same time, absolute costs and ROI based upon successful deployment and use of technology are not exactly the same.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:My company, an IT consulting firm, is an Oracle Gold Partner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gives us two main features that we use the most and which are the most valuable to us: the administration console and clustering. Valuable Features:WebLogic Server gives us two main features that we use the most and which are the most valuable to us:* Administration console - Compared to open source application servers, the WLS administration console is quite complete in terms of features. It would be easier for developers and sysadmins to manage, monitor and config the app server from an administration console.* Clustering - The clustering capability is also pretty robust.Room for Improvement:I'd like to have a lighter version for micro-service architecture. In my experience, it can sometimes take 15-30 minutes just to start the server if we deploy a lot of applications. I think this may be in the latest version, although I'm not sure.Use of Solution:I've been using it for three to four years.Deployment Issues:We had no issues with the deployment.Stability Issues:We've had no issues with the stability.Scalability Issues:There have been no issues scaling it for our needs.Initial Setup:The initial setup was pretty straightforward, but my advice would be to read the documentation first. Their documentation is very comprehensive and contain basic tips for installation and tuning the products.Implementation Team:I implemented as part of a vendor team. I have seen and heard of implementations where the basic configuration and features are not configured, which can actually enhance the reliability and performance of the app server.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Important features out-of-the-box are the JMS server, database tuning options, full script ability, and Java EE 6.0 support. Valuable Features:WebLogic is a mature Java application server and when compared to competitors, it excels in speed, scalability and stability. Important features out-of-the-box are the JMS server, database tuning options, full script ability, and Java EE 6.0 support.Improvements to My Organization:It's improved our organization in lots of ways. For example, using the WLST scripting allowed us to build a continuous integration environment. We’ve also managed to increase throughput and reliability by replacing an older JMS server with the internal WebLogic JMS engine.Room for Improvement:Although WebLogic is fully supported with different Linux distributions and most installations run on Linux machines, on a clean installation there are no startup or service scripts, requiring time investment and perhaps external help for a robust set up.Use of Solution:I've used it for over ten years. WebLogic server was developed by BEA systems as an early adopter of the J2EE specification and was later bought by Oracle.Deployment Issues:We have had no issues with the deployment.Stability Issues:There have been no issues with its stability.Scalability Issues:We've had no issues scaling it for our needs.Technical Support:Oracle support is expensive, but they're good and available 24/7. Support for any version is for years and any given version of WebLogic is already extremely stable. Bug fixes, security updates, and bundle patches come often.Previous Solutions:For a 120 requests/second web shop I was consulted in, WebLogic was chosen because of the seamless service – production redeployments allowed for user sessions ending and the new application taking over without any end-user errors. Rolling upgrades and automatic server migration on failure were also important arguments that other offerings could not match.Initial Setup:As mentioned, some Linux scripting is needed to set up a system that will survive reboots. However, after the first graphic or command-line setup, it’s easy to roll out additional domains: you have many options for different levels of expertise such as domain extension, templating, having the installer saving the installation script and so forth.Implementation Team:I set up implementations for our customers. If implementing a mission critical system, you should consider getting external expertise for advice on monitoring and failover configuration and such.Cost and Licensing Advice:WebLogic uses a per-physical core pricing model. The basic “WebLogic Server” license does not support clustering and is useless in most enterprise situations. The often-bought “WebLogic Suite” license is very expensive if you do not plan on using the included Coherence cache. Take special care when using virtualization: Oracle licensing will insist on counting the number of physical cores on the hypervisor and will not care for configured partitioning of CPU’s!Other Solutions Considered:When compared to Tomcat and JBoss, WebLogic performed better with the same applications and also allowed for easier scaling and system administration.Other Advice:WebLogic is an amazing product, reflected by its pricing model. I would always advise on setting up a clustered environment, even if this is not a user requisite, as this allows for more flexibility. Also, consider using Apache with the WebLogic plugin as a web tier and SSL terminator instead of a commercial offering.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
