Hi

I am using Weblogic Application server 5.1 and another team in my company is using IBM Web Sphere.
I personally feel the Weblogic 5.1 and JBuilder 4 is an excellent combination. As far is IBM Web Sphere, there seems to be some missmatch between the IBM Visual Age (IDE) and the Application Server - its like they both are being developed seperately ,but sold together.
Hey this is just my thinking
Cheers

if i am not mistaken Jbuilder and Visual Age are IDEs
they should not have anything to do with what is the appserver
I am talking about webserver and appserver combination
appserver as you said like weblogic, websphere
webserver like apache,IIS etc.
which one is used with Weblogic
or is it that webserver functionality of Weblogic only is used
(Weblogic gives webserver functionality with appserver
if you use http protocol on port 7001 it serves it as web requests,
for EJBs you use t3 protocol of weblogic)
my question is still not answered
which webserver is popular

I am sorry
here is wat I am using, all these are on different Boxes
Application Server : WEblogic 5.1
Web Server : Apache
JSP Engine : Tomcat
Database Server : Oracle 8i
Currently all the boxes are Win2000 Boxes , and I have also tried out The Web Server and JSP Engine on Linux Box.
Currently we are using two instances of Tomcat with a common Apache Web Server.
The reason that I mentioned about the IDE is that you are not going to use the Application Server alone, u will also require an IDE - though u can program with an IDE and use Notepad instead, but that would waste a lot of development time.
I hope this answers u'r question.

Hi,
By far, Weblogic is the most popular App Server. It is also the one which supports J2EE to the maximum extent.

------------------
Hope this helps. Correct me if I am wrong.
Cheers ,

Hi
If you are integrating Apache and the JSP Engine Provieded by Weblogic then you will need a plugin, -- as far as i know this plug in is avaliable only for Linux Platform ( data obtained about 4 months back - u can confirm again ).
It is important to understand here that Apahce is just a web server, and it does not process JSP pages. When a requrest is made of a .jsp page that request is forwarded to the correspnding JSP engine ( depending on the plugin installed in Apache )
What you are talking about it is all .jsp request to be forwared to the JSP engine provied by Weblogic, so the web container provided by Weblogic will contain all the JSP pages, Java Beans and Custom Tags, and these in turn will communicate with the EJB(s) in the Weblogic Application Server.

I hope this clears something ..............
