Horses for courses a nutshell.
WebLogic - nice GUI,more ���, more geared towards the business logic layer.
Tomcat - text file confg, free, more geared towards the presentation layer.

An other difference (it kept me awake for long nights!):

- war deployment under weblogic is different since the war archive is not expanded into directories.

consequence: any configuration from included files is bound to fail if file API are used.

Yet more differences - WebLogic is an EJB container - Tomcat is a Servlet container.

WebLogic is commercially supported. Tomcat is community supported.
