WebLogic is quite nice, but you could also try JBoss. Both are very competent app servers.

If money is not a problem, I'd recommend weblogic. It is very complex true, but at least it has a great documentation and this can certainly make a difference when you want to become acquainted with a product. For the same very reasons (although I never used it) I believe WebSphere is another very good choice.

While people will have reasons for their preference to a particular server, you need to ask yourself, why are you looking for one? If you need a container just to learn EJBs, Sun's reference implementation that comes with the J2EE tutorial should be enough. You may also pick other light weight servers such as Geronimo at or JBoss (not so light but still light enough, becuase you can start it with "minimal" option). Also if you have jdeveloper, I think it comes with OC4J (Oracle's container). You may also want to think about the hardware specs you have available. Home PCs typically work better with a lighter container.

If you are trying to choose a server for a commercial implementation, you need to consider many factors: enterprise direction, cost, other tools (for compatibility purposes), skills available in house and many more.

Let us know if you have more questions
