OK, I've discovered that trying to find information at the IBM site is like wading through a dictionary that's not in alphabetical order looking for a specific word.

Can anyone clue me in to what the latest and greatest version of websphere server is, and what its J2EE compliance level is? Specifically, I'm looking for Servlets 2.4 and JSP 2.0 compliance.

I think Version 6 added JSP 2.0 support. See here

And looks like 6.1 is the current version. Read here.

Just to add to that, we were working on a WebSphere 6 project up until a few weeks ago when the client compelled a switch-over to Weblogic 9.1.

I found WebSphere slightly easier to configure, and IBM's on-line documentation is a whole lot easier to get answers from. On the other hand, WebSphere is stuck in Java 1.4, while Weblogic comes with two Java 5 runtimes, so you are free to use all those kewl J5 features.

Given the choice I still vote for Resin, which now comes with built-in PHP support

If you are looking at the IDE too, note that RAD (rational application developer) 6 is what goes with WAS (websphere application server) 6. They renamed it from WSAD (websphere studio application developer) to RAD.
 
Yup, yup, yup. Tiny ad:
