These products are intended for different purposes. You can't really compare them directly. Tomcat is a Servlet Container, whereas WebSphere is an Application Server. Which is "best" depends entirely on what type of container your project needs.

Websphere is a full J2ee Application server
It means all components of J2ee are available in Websphere ,
for instance : EJB stuff
Tomcat is a Servlet container it means that no ejb stuff will operate insde tomcat.

You can use Websphere when you need a reliable high performance full J2ee application server .
but Tomcat is for place where you have no EJB stuff.
Websphere could well integrate with other IBM techs like tivolli , access manager , its EGL ,...


hope it helps

Hi,

The simplest answer is Tomcat is a open source project, and Websphere is a commercial one, so you know the difference between open source and commercial.

And Tomcat is a Servlet Engine or Web container, so you cannot deploy EJB components. Websphere is a J2EE Application Server, you can deploy all J2EE componets.

Thanks
