Comparing BEA Weblogic and Websphere

hello,
I had been using BEA Weblogic for quite some time around 6-7 yrs or so. Now I am working on websphere in one of my projects. I am trying to map many things which I learned there.I am using RAD to develop the websphere application. version is 6.0.
I have a basic question here. In weblogic we create various domains using Domain creation wizard which creates the domain as a physical directory in file system. i know that if I want to know deploy any app then I have to go the "applications" directory and then move the JAR,EAR/WAR over there and if hot deployment is ON then it will deploy the file if server is on. We use startweblogic.cmd/sh to start the server. That script has all the classpath set and everything.
Now when I try to explore websphere in this way I am not able to find anything of this sort. Do we have domains concept in websphere. I created a workspace using RAD and created a project "some" and deploy it to websphere. Then created another workspace created another project "another" and deploy it to websphere. When I see the admin console I see both the apps running in the server.
I hope I am clear with my question.
Please let me know if somebody can resolve my confusion/doubts around this.

Hi,
I think I will try giving answers to these question myself.
DOMAIN in WLS corresponds to the profile concept in Websphere. I have successfully created a profile and could link its usage with the Domain in weblogic.
thnx

A profile in WebSphere to me, is akin to en entire new isntallation of the software. Basically, to do in earlier versions of WebSphere what we now do with a profile, we'd have to install WebSphere into a completely new and separate directory. It's like a brand new installation.

From there, the new installation in the past, or profile in present day, can exist on its own, representing prop, pre-prod and testing environments, or, you can federate the profiles and do some WLM, although just clustering JVMs in a single profile makes more sense.

Happy WebSphere!

Hi Cameron McKenzie,
I was looking for changing the HTTP listener port in websphere could not locate that.
We have config.xml in weblogic installation which has all the information about the connections,connection pools,Http and Https ports etc. I was trying to locate such a file for websphere but could not find it.
Or it is only possible to manage the server through console itself?
Thanks,
Amit

Listener port is a property of the server (JVM). Dig into the server, and you'll find the option to configure the port.

Make sure you also configure the WebSphere virtual_host, or nothing will get routed propertly. And regenerate the WebSphere plugin as well, or the web based requests won't get there.

Good luck!
