Cons
"Having the support combined with Red Hat support would be an improvement.""In general, the support of the ERPC would be really good due to the fact that, so far, I have not seen it.""It can have automation features. Everybody is focused right now on automation. In terms of saving cost, automation is always the first thing that comes to light.""The initial setup is a bit complex.""Sometimes the console has a glitch.""The solution could improve by providing more integration."

More JBoss Cons →

"The integration could be improved.""The quarterly updates can sometimes lead to instability depending on the configuration of systems.""Its pricing should be better. We are analyzing other options, such as JBoss, because of the cost of WebLogic.""I can't point to anything missing.""Licensing fees need improvement.""The administration is hard, and it is more complex to use than others.""In terms of what could be improved, maybe something related to the processes automation or starting and stopping the processes, because often WebLogic comes with something called Node Manager. Node Manager needs to be configured and administrated manually.""If you want to use Oracle products to the fullest with enhanced customizations, you need to get trained. There is enough documentation and the flexibility to configure the application to your needs but you will need to spend more time gathering the knowledge."
