Are you asking which is the best J2EE application server?
If you are, you won't get a straight answer as it's mostly a matter of opinion and varying requirements.
The biggest names are BEA WebLogic, IBM WebSphere, and JBoss. WebSphere is a bit behind in the latest specs, WebLogic (as well as WebSphere) cost big bucks but scales well, and JBoss is open source but performs well too.
Then there are Caucho Resin, IronFlare Orionserver, Oracle 9iAS, Borland AS, Macromedia JRun, Pramati Server and others that don't have so much market share.
You'll probably find your favorite EJB implementation among these, but the only way to find that one is to give all (or most) of these a chance.

Does anyone have any experience with Oracle 9iAS? The powers that be where I work have ordered us to standardize on Oracle, including their application server, and I'd kind of like to know what I'm getting into...

Hi,
I suggest Weblogic is one of the best application server for EJB's.Compared to Websphere it always complies with the latest EJB 2.0/2.1 specs and good support for JMS.Always Websphere is not updated with the latest specs of EJB its always one version down.Weblogic 7.0 has good features of configuring your servers in clustered environment.

My personal favorite is, I guess, WebLogic because I've gotten used to the deployment descriptor and so on. But, as WebLogic is commercial, I'd opt for JBoss in personal projects. I used to use Orionserver (around the 1.5.2 release) but not any more as they seem to be lagging behind in development.

Well, 9iAS is based on Orionserver, so the basics are alright, but somehow Oracle has messed up the structure of the .jar files etc. that I get somehow repelled about it (look at all those sub-directories created when installing "OC4J").
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
