I am going to move this to a more approriate forum. This forum is for ORM related questions about mapping Java classes to Databases, querying the data, etc...

OK, so my question, and there is bias here. Why aren't you looking at JBoss app server?

Anyway, my experience with both Weblogic and Websphere is this.

1. I found Websphere much more difficult to learn and deploy applications. Basically felt like you had to jump through too many hoops to deploy.
2. Weblogic was the first App Server I ever used in 2000 and have come accross it much more than Websphere. Weblogic does a great job in making management of its app server easy with its console app and easy to deploy apps.
3. I am sure there might be a different in price.
4. In terms of market space and future job opportunities, I think Weblogic is used in more places than Websphere, (Not that this should be used as a basis of decision making, just a point)

My choice between those two app servers is Weblogic. But if I had choice of any App Server, I would choose JBoss or Glassfish over both of those because I feel they are better app servers and also FREE!!! Of course I would choose always JBoss because I like it so much that that is who I now work for.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
