Maybe its different from company to company, but I don't think I ever encountered an administrator that was dedicated to just Weblogic or WebSphere. Heck, even the application server admins that I encountered had other duties.

IMO, in the "job point of view", it may be better to consider yourself as a system administrator, with Weblogic or WebSphere experience, perferrably both.

To answer you question though... Weblogic is Oracle, and WebSphere is IBM, both huge companies that is unlikely to go away in the future. Can't really go wrong with learning either.

Some large companies/consulting firms have someone dedicated to administering (and being the subject matter expert) for the app server. I have seen it.

I agree that neither is preferred. I can't see either going away. A good way to decide between is to see which has more job listings in your area. That said, most places don't hire someone for this position without experience.
