There's a discussion floating around my company that I would like to gather some of my fellow JavaRancher's opinions on. Our product distributes with Tomcat 3.2.1. I find it very easy to use, quite robust, and have not found any compelling disadvantages. The opinion floating around is that we should use WebSphere. I have my own opinions regarding WS, but I'd like to hear from anyone else who's had experience with both packages.

hi,
I cannot compare with WebSphere, but what I do know is that
1) tomcat is slow!!
2) is a servlet container (doesn't support J2EE) while other servers are applications servers
3) tomcat doesn't support EJB's

Tomcat is free (my favorite price) and it's the place where the latest and greatest J2EE features are being prototyped, but in a business sense you may find it cheaper to administer an all-in-one server instead of managing a conglomeration of JSP/Servlet, EJB, JMS, etc. servers each having its own configuration rules and peculiarities.
