Yes, though each may support different specification versions.

For starters, Weblogic and WebSphere cost serious money, while Tomcat is free. Of course, Tomcat is just a servlet container/web server, while the other two are complete JEE servers that have oodles of other features Tomcat doesn't.

That depends entirely on what you want your app to do.

Google would probably be your best friend for this one.

A search for "J2EE Server Comparison" brought me right to this one.

Again, depending on what you want to do, you might want to change your search to only look for Open Source servers or Servers that support EJB, etc...
