A look at the best application servers: WebSphere, Web logic and JBoss
There are various application servers which operate at the hosting market. It is required for any developer to choose the best server from the available options that suits the mode of his development. There are a few application servers which are provide some superior features – which makes it impossible to choose an absolute best. Undoubtedly, the leaders in this group are WebSphere, Weblogic and JBoss. The free version of JBoss known as the JBoss community can be obtained free on the Internet and it is developed by the Red Hat foundation. It is developed with the users through the open source community. The community supports and provides with contribution for the JBoss which helps the server to develop as a better application server.
If you are using the Java framework and the contributions find your web application in a good state, you would definitely opt for JBoss as your required Web application. If you are up against some complex function you may subscribe to Jboss’s paid version which can help you to develop a better application. It works well within all the frameworks such as Struts and Hibernate which may lead to a better design.
Now we compare it to Web sphere. WebSphere is another application server form the house of IBM. It is a server that offers free community edition just like JBoss however its functionalities vary from the JBoss. Apart from the free version the WebSphere even has some better versions which are paid ones. SOA embedded server instruments, E-commerce versions also add to the arsenal of the WebSphere.
IBM has developed Websphere as a support system which helps it to maintain the applications built with the help of the IBM products such as IBM RSA. Websphere works well in case of the websites which are more common and commerce related. It has good security and works considerably fast as compared to the other servers. Its paid versions have better capabilities and once implemented with your project they do act seamlessly and help you to increase the throughput of the project.
The high and demanding architectures can be easily done using the WebSphere which is the most important feature of the WebSphere and noteworthy if you are up to building some commercial websites.
WebSphere when compared to JBoss would score considerable well since it has more number of features as compared to JBoss. However JBoss being a community based free web server has a considerably good rating as we have to keep in mind the high price tag IBM puts upon the WebSphere which may not be feasible for the smaller projects.
Whereas coming to the third server that we are considering here, the Web logic is designed by the Oracle. Weblogic has a history of providing a strong support to the high end projects. Clustering and scalability are the two main features that you would never want to miss once you are using a web server. This is exactly what Weblogic delivers better than the other two server applications mentioned above. Weblogic has been reinvented by Oracle after its BEA acquisition. Now Weblogic integrates best with the Oracle products which makes it mandatory for you to use one of the Oracle products if you are to maximize the scalability of the Weblogic server application.
