finally i agreed that it is better to use IBM server with IBM tools. i have a question to ask, it is enough to use websphere studio advanced edition if i want to develop JSP, Servlet & Javabean? seems VAJ professional edition is included in the Websphere studio package thanks!
Actually, VAJ is the preferred tool for Servlets, JSP's and JavaBeans. That is because it includes the built-in WebSphere Test Environment (WTE) for testing those classes immediately without having to deploy them into a separate WebSphere instance. I strongly suggest you go get a copy of my book if you intend on using the IBM toolset -- it explains the ins and outs of how these tools work. On the other hand,you might want to check out the URL I gave you in a previous posting that allows you to download the new IBM toolset (IBM WebSphere Studio Application Developer, or WSAD).
