Understanding of application development concepts in ESB due to the easy application of concepts within the tools.
The almost zero administration of the tool that contributes to almost 99% of service availability and easy integration with third-party applications.
Versatility for design and development of customized frameworks in an agile way due to the diversity of prefabricated components that are included in the Enterprise Service Bus.
The development of support packages either by IBM or by the community is of great help when implementing or obtaining specific features such as traces, quick statistics on the behavior of the integrations and evaluation of resources based on work load.

Application server with Enterprise features

We have implemented IBM WebSphere on a core banking environment. It was actually a migration from giant middle-ware vendor. The migration was very smooth. WebSphere is capable of providing almost all enterprise feature required by our client. The solution is implemented using following features.
+High Availability
+Enhanced security
+ Transaction management etc.
During the migration , we did not faced any major issue. The client and ourselves extremely satisfied with the capabilities of WebSphere.

Finally I can say this is a fully pledged implementation of java specification,.

Big enterprise solution and comes with a lots of problems

I would recommend to anyone to really think do they really need IBM WebSphere or if their business problem could be solved using some other (more stable and cheaper) options.

I would recommend to anyone to really think do they really need IBM WebSphere or if their business problem could be solved using some other (more stable and cheaper) options.

Pros

I have been using IBM WebSphere Application Server and Portal for a long time, and it does come with tons of options and integration features, which is great for big enterprise systems.

Cons

I've had many issues with it - official docs are really bad, the community is small and it is hard even to describe some problems you experience, and it takes more time to learn than other options available. And since not many people are familiar with it, it is sometimes not easy to find a good engineer to support it.

Pros

It is one of the oldest running application servers from IBM, though they keep upgrading it to a newer version. It has all the basic functionality that you will look for in an application server. You can host all your applications especially the Java built applications on it. Our complete middleware tools like MQ and Message Broker were integrated very easily and securely with it.

Cons

The administration part of the tool is little difficult to understand at first. One really needs to go through the documentation thorougly to get the hang of it.
