In my opinion WebLogic is suppose to be the best. I've not used any of these products - but what I've understood from market is yes - WebLogic !!
Wish you all the best.

Hi
It would depend on various factors before you could consider using any of these App Servers available in the market. Certainly, BEA's WebLogic Server is one of the most used App server today in Enterprise applications.
One main factor which I can think of, would be the backend application environment that the EJB's would be interacting with. Say, if the environment is a legacy IBM Mainframe or AS/400, a better choice would be to go for IBM's Websphere, since it provides specific tools and various add-on features, which makes it easier to set up the integration of the application environment and please note, Websphere is very robust and reliable App Server.
Hope this Helps.
Thanks,
Suresh

I couldn't disagree with Suresh more. It is a very bad policy to base your choice of application servers upon proprietary interfaces available from the same supplier. You may as well have DCOM and be done with it.
Ask yourself why you are choosing EJB.
The whole point of EJB is to provide common component framework on the server. This then allows you to move your components around application servers freely. You would lose this portability taking Suresh's approach.
If you are choosing an application server then look at how it supports the EJB specification or more importantly how it supports J2EE.
Cost will also be a consideration.
Weblogic has a reputation as the market leader and is certainly behind more enteprise systems than any other EJB server. It also has the reputation of fully supporting the EJB specifications over and above any other application server.
Personally I'd go for iPlanet 6.0, then weblogic 5.1.
