Stable and easily handles applications that use only web containers
Pros and Cons
  • "Stable and easy to handle in terms of hosting applications."
  • "Lacks some functional requirements."

What is our primary use case?

My job is to analyze which particular application platform is suitable for the type of application. JBoss is one of the solutions I recommend. I'm a senior infrastructure architect.

What is most valuable?

This current solution is quite stable and the whole frame is quite easy to handle in terms of hosting the application, especially the applications that use only the web containers. We've introduced the clustering solution for our customers, which is a high availability solution and we haven't had any complaints. 

What needs improvement?

I'd like to see some sort of functional requirement that can convert technical requirements in the JBoss platform. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for close to six years.

September 2022
Find out what your peers are saying about Red Hat, IBM, Apache and others in Application Infrastructure. Updated: September 2022.
632,539 professionals have used our research since 2012.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is relatively simple. Our engineering team implement the solution and it's easy for them to understand. The applications are critical by nature. To date, we've implemented for around 30 different applications and if I try to consolidate the user base, there are somewhere around 200 users.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

JBoss is totally subscription-based and it's less costly for us. As a solution architect, I would say licensing is key. The cost involved in implementing the solution is a key factor now that most companies are looking to cut costs. WebSphere is really costly and less flexible. I think the JBoss subscription is quite competitive. Most people understand that the EAP kind of solution will save a lot of money in terms of licensing. 

What other advice do I have?

We've never had any complaints with customers who have implemented this product. 

I rate this product an eight out of 10.
