A good back end software for web based apps

  • July 31, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
For the most part, this application is solid and very reliable. We used it for back end software applications and it's rare we even need to touch it.
What do you dislike?
Java updates constantly break it. This is no fault of the software but it is extremely annoying. It can also be a huge memory hog unless you limit it.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We benefit from a reliable, easy to troubleshoot application that does what we need it to do.

Un producto solido.

  • July 30, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Fácil de desarrollar y aplicaciones web. La mayoría de las personalizaciones e integraciones están bien documentadas y son fáciles de implementar.
What do you dislike?
La configuración de un marco de registro no predeterminado no es fácil.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Alojando nuestro producto SaaS en la nube. Como desarrollador, la simplicidad de crear una instancia de desarrollo de tomcat es crucial. Puedo ponerme en funcionamiento en unos minutos sin personalizaciones. Esta simplicidad me permite concentrarme en los problemas que mi empresa está tratando de resolver, y no en la infraestructura.

My first steps on Apache Tomcat

  • July 25, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
The manager used to upload projects is very simple to use. It has a great stability and has no problems with MySQL connections. I manage the deplyment of several web application in JSP and I have no problems, no unexpected server crases or web applications shutdowns.
What do you dislike?
It is not as easy to configure as I would like. You have to find out how to configure/secure your Apache Tomcat, there is a lot of documentation on configurations but for a non-expert user, the information is not entirely clear.
When you have to change the version of an application, you have to stop the application, which is normal, and replicate it, by doing this everything is deleted, there were problems once since some documents that had been uploaded by the users were lost.
For subsequent versions of this application, another project was created where these files were uploaded in order to change versions without having to make a backup of the documents with each version change.
This is not sufficiently documented to avoid this type of failure.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I make some web applications running on Apache Tomcat. All applications have connection with MySQL database and allow sending files to the server, as well as generating reports to download.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Apache Tomcat configuration is not as easy as you want, but, it works great, it has a good stability and it's free.
It works great with MySQL, you can have a correct web server full of applications with no cost without counting the hosting costs.

    Information Technology and Services

the best server for developers

  • May 11, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
It is a pretty good server that supports many technologies, besides having a free version, quite complete, it is the most used server and popular among programmers
What do you dislike?
I really think it is quite complete, the only thing that may seem to me to be really bad, is that when it comes to having several versions of tomcat, it can be a problem when starting the server, besides that you have to clean it and run it several times so it can run perfectly
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
has developed several web applications, which allow running these applications and see their different behaviors, this is beneficial for the client since they can see how their application is being developed, also allows the QA staff can also perform their reviews and quality control of the application
Recommendations to others considering the product:
It should be noted that Tomcat implements the specifications of servlets and JavaServer Pages of Oracle Corporation Users have free access to its source code and its binary form in the terms established in the Apache Software License

One of the easier tool to configure a web server!!

  • May 08, 2018
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The project is hosted by Apache and it is open source which makes it best for SMBs.
What do you dislike?
The documentation and support provided for the application can sometimes be not adequate enough if you are using it for highly commercial projects and face some major issues.
The Log can be difficult to interpret for new users but you will get the hang of it soon.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It is opensource and free. It is highly secure since most of the vulnerabilities have been checked thoroughly and fixed by the open source community. Moreover, the tool is tried and tested by time and thousands of developers like us.

Strong web server for JavaEE

  • May 01, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
It is easy to setup your local system and production server with it. It can be used alongside IDEs such as Eclipse and Netbeans. It is platform independent. If the web interface is installed, deploying your war file is so easy. It's free and open source.
What do you dislike?
It crashes unexpectedly without any reason and sometimes the errors displayed are not clear enough to find the real reason.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
To run user experiments to gather research data.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
This is a great option to other web servers for JavaEE, however, you need to have the basic terminal skills to help with troubleshooting at points. You have to careful with the JRE versions that you have initially used with the project.

Probably the best web server for Java Servlets and its eco system.

  • May 01, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Simple and intuitive user interface and easy to get started. Some with knowledge of JAVA and a basic understanding of PATH would be able to get a Tomcat server up and running in a couple of minutes.
What do you dislike?
Nothing to call to explicitly, but user-friendly CLI messages would be great for new users. But one gets used to it soon.
Tomcat is servlet container and EJB support was not available, thus on few occasions, we had to use an Application server.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I have used Tomcat for serving Java Web Application. It's primarily a Java Servlet container if EJB support is not needed this is probably the best bet. Among the benefits of using Tomcat is it being open source software and a huge community base, there are nearly 36K questions tagged with "tomcat" in StackOverflow. Also, it is easy to report and track bug if found in the software.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Apache Tomcat software is probably the best open source server for the Java Servlets. It is most well know and popular compared to its competitor, Jetty being the closest competitor.
