People say Jboss support is much better than Websphere's. Is that true?

Objectively as possible, utilizing people that were expert in each, and concluded that JBoss EAP is the clear winner over WebSphere AS ND with a 50.91%
lower TCO, easier application development characteristics, noteworthy operational ease-of-use advantages, and a smaller footprint.

Hope this article helps you!

RedHat commissioned a study that concluded that their product was better. I can't help but be skeptical there.

I haven't interacted with JBoss support so I don't know which is better.
