Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is really good in terms of features, and it is stable.""The solution is extendable so you can start with two cores and add more at any time.""The scalability is good.""Oracle Fusion is stable.""The solution is quite good for applying patches or performing upgrades.""One good thing, which is a little bit common across all middleware products, is that you can build asynchronous as well as synchronous processes. The SOA part is where it can maintain your state for any state-full integrations. If you have failures, you can replay all that, which is a good part.""Fusion Middleware's main feature for me is that it is quite flexible, and, as middleware, it provides us with all sorts of technology and application adapters, which makes it very handy to use."

"The deployment process is very fast.""Tomcat is a simple, light environment, whereas the full Red Hat Fuse solution is heavier.""The ease of use of Tomcat is its most valuable feature. Once we grade particular software, we simply download it and we keep an eye on if Tomcat is working.""It is easy to set up.""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.""The scalability overall is good.""The most valuable feature is how simple it is to deploy the solution.""The most valuable features of this solution are the general web server features."

More Tomcat Pros →

"The price could always be better.""An improvement for Oracle's Fusion Middleware could definitely be found in the SOA component. It's a heavyweight container and, if you ask me, if a product is available as a docker image where we can easily port it in to another Kubernetes platform, that would be perfect. But as for the current situation in the market, nobody is really willing to deploy this on premises.""One thing that I would like to see is if this product can be containerized. We are moving away from virtual servers and moving more towards containerization to be able to quickly set up environments or have the flexibility of scaling them. It would be good if it can be containerized, and it works well in containerized platforms.""Technical support should resolve issues more quickly.""Oracle Fusion Middleware is based on the regulations in Saudi Arabia and the legislation changes. There is a need to be improvements all the time. It needs to adapt quickly in this market. Additionally, there could be some improvements in the construction sector.""Its price can be improved. We are currently looking for more cost-efficiency. It should also have a little bit more flexibility for customizations. The customizations should be quicker.""The documentation might not be good enough for new users."

More Oracle Fusion Middleware Cons →

"The disability and memory management is a problem with the solution and has room for improvement.""The solution cannot host .NET applications.""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.""Technical support is limited.""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.""Vulnerability is one of the areas that can be considered an issue in the solution.""I would also like to see a dashboard with some integrations in order to see the logs and trace performance easier."
