We performed a comparison between Magic xpa Application Platform 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 best feature of Magic is the development time. The time it takes to develop something is incredibly fast if you compare Magic with, for example, Java."
"The solution makes the managing and adapting of the software very easy."
"The Magic xpa Application Platform is very suitable for production since it is easy to update. The program is simple to upgrade and deploy. The solution is convenient in production. You need to adjust the data, then adjust the program which is not difficult."
"What I found most valuable in the Magic xpa Application Platform is that it has a client-server and web browser technology that's perfect for company users."
"xpa gives us a fast development speed."
"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."
"It is easy to set up."
"The deployment process is very fast."
"Tomcat is a simple, light environment, whereas the full Red Hat Fuse solution is heavier."
"Tomcat's best feature is the open source server. It's a flexible and lightweight solution."
"The solution has very robust functionality."
"The most valuable feature is how simple it is to deploy the solution."
"The most valuable feature is the free EE server."
"Throughout my career, I've encountered difficulties when integrating new technologies with Magic xpa Application Platform. In particular, when attempting to incorporate features from other development languages into earlier versions of the solution called uniPaaS. I struggled to integrate .NET components due to the limited options available. This made the process more challenging and complicated. I find it challenging to create a more user-friendly experience for users who may be comparing the system to other systems they have used outside or within the company on different platforms."
"Support is very bad."
"They want to be one toolbox for everything, but primarily, we are using xpa to develop desktop applications, and in that area they're lacking functionalities, flexibility, and modern stuff."
"There is room for improvement in Magic's marketing and licensing. I would like to see more integration of web functionality."
"In the next version of the Magic xpa Application Platform, I want tables or small programs where I can directly add expressions. I can do it on SQL, but it would make life much easier if that specification were added to the platform."
"Tomcat is not user-friendly. I would also like to be able to have multiple applications run at the same time."
"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."
"Vulnerability is one of the areas that can be considered an issue in the solution."
"In the solution, we are using the terminal to enter command line codes for operations and management, this is difficult for me. It would be better if we had some administrator UI tools for this."
"If Apache can come up with a better solution to provide better security, that would be ideal."
"Sometimes we face issues with the private and public networks and ensuring that once Tomcat is installed, that it is secure."
"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."
