Confused about Websphere and Weblogic features

Hi,
I have been learning about servlets, JSP and EJB in Apache/Tomcat and Sun Application Server environment using Netbeans as the IDE. So my knowledge in Java quite limited....
I have been trying to learn about Websphere and Weblogic.....
but I am confused.
Is Websphere and Weblogic:
1. Web and/or EJB container
2. Act as a Server (like Apache)
3. Is a IDE too (like Netbeans?)
If they are containers/servers then can I use them with Eclipse or JBoss?
And also, what is the difference between Websphere and Weblogic? (As they both belong to IBM.)
I have googled on this topic but unable to find clear understanding, please help
Thanks,
Danveer.

Thanks Andrew, it does help !
Just one doubt....
"j2ee application server" - does this mean that it is a web + ejb container and also it acts like a server like Apache ?



I hope if someone could please provide me some info on Weblogic and the differences.
Thanks.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
