Hi I am a bit curious about websphere. Is there anything special about the app server? What are the advantage a company would pick websphere rather than other app server? Is developing j2ee app a lot different with websphere than other server? Thank you.

The big advantages I can think of are a highly scalable app server with IBM support and good integration with other IBM products.

Conceptually, developing j2ee apps is the same with any server. There are IBM extensions you can use though.

If you use Process Server or Portal you have to use WAS. Otherwise there is not much between WAS,WL and Jboss.
