Hi Gurus,
I'm just a novice in J2EE technologies and just have started developing & deploying EJB's on Weblogic server. So far this is what all i have done.So can i please know what exactly is the difference between Weblogic & websphere. i know they both are the J2EE containers, but as per my understanding these app servers also provide some more features and GUI whcih make the life of developer easy. so can anyone please tell what are the extra features packed in Websphere and does websphere also comes with its own libraries?
I guess both websphere and weblogic does the same thing, so can a component deployed in weblogic and be deployed in websphere as well without any changes?
Can i also know about the tutorials/Guides and books wherein i can learn about websphere and can use it in my J2EE practice?
Thanks in advance

I believe that if the componenets are written to the J2EE spec, without any vendor specific code or deployment features, then they should run equally as happy in any compliant Container.

If you are looking to learn websphere first place to start would be

Then install the product & try some samples.
The Infocenter & handbook should help you through the deploy process.

Then move a bit deeper - WebSphere Scripting wsadmin
