We performed a comparison between JBoss and Tomcat based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Application Server solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The solution is easy to use."
"The solution's technical support is good."
"The product integrates well with Java applications."
"We can deploy the applications on the JBoss server, so it is easy to manage. It's also easy to add new certificates to the config."
"The high availability is great."
"The solution has flexibility and stability."
"JBoss has made it very easy to implement web applications."
"The greatest benefit of JBoss is that it was procured by IBM, thereby offering exceptional support for our banking operations."
"Tomcat is a simple, light environment, whereas the full Red Hat Fuse solution is heavier."
"The deployment process is very fast."
"It is easy to set up."
"It is a robust solution."
"Tomcat's best feature is the open source server. It's a flexible and lightweight solution."
"The most valuable feature is how simple it is to deploy the solution."
"One of the most valuable features of Tomcat is its compatibility with the Apache web server and its ease of configuration. It is simple to set up and maintain and allows for easy management of database connections, transactions, and isolation. Overall, Tomcat is a user-friendly application server that makes it easy to manage various aspects of database interactions."
"Our company doesn't face any stability issues while using Tomcat."
"The stability of the solution could improve with Microsoft Windows."
"There is not much ability inside of the solution. The world is going beyond different micro and data-type things like Microsoft Office, so we are not seeing much ability within the solution."
"The solution sometimes crashed and had some compatibility issues with the DevOps JAR file."
"The solution's documentation could be better."
"Logging-related issues in JBoss require improvement."
"The documentation could be better. When we have questions, we need to check multiple websites. There isn't one place listing a set of common problems and how to fix them."
"The solution could improve by providing more integration."
"Sometimes the console has a glitch."
"Vulnerability is one of the areas that can be considered an issue in the solution."
"One way to improve the solution is by making the logging capabilities of Tomcat better by providing a logger within the server itself and making it easy to access and view the server logs. This can be especially useful when debugging issues with applications deployed on the Tomcat server. By having the ability to view both the application logs and the server logs, you can more easily identify the source of any issues and troubleshoot them more efficiently. Providing a connector or other similar feature that allows you to access the server logs from within your application can also be helpful in this regard. Having access to both the application logs and the server logs can be a valuable resource when trying to identify and resolve problems."
"Security integration in Tomcat is complicated. We need to use another tool to solve the security issues."
"The disability and memory management is a problem with the solution and has room for improvement."
"The solution cannot host .NET applications."
"Tomcat is not user-friendly. I would also like to be able to have multiple applications run at the same time."
"The solution's interface and backup features could be better."
"I would also like to see a dashboard with some integrations in order to see the logs and trace performance easier."
