Which application server is better, ws or wl? I had passed the WAS std edition test but didnt get to work much with it.. I worked on WL 4.5 which was ok..Heard there is lot more to it in the later versions...

IMHO WLS is far better for the simple reason
that its been fast to keep up with J2EE specs.
I have started using WAS for last couple of days
and I have already started to miss those highly active WLS newsgroups.

Websphere is a piece of crack, admin console takes forever to load up and buggie, if you let console run overnight, you may not be able to close down on tomorrow, then you have to restart server.
JBoss is lite, it is a really good developer tool.
Weblogic is good. but they don't have developer edition somehow.
So I am coding on JBOSS and running on Weblogic 6.1. Very good combination for me so far.
Oracle 9iAS is footprint giant. I just don't like it.
Jrun is buggie also. The rest of App Servers seem do not have much market share.

Hi Sunny,
What features make JBoss a good developer tool?
I am about to look into JBoss, for it is so popular among developers. The only problem with JBoss is it has not received compatibility cert from Sun.

iPlanet is very good too. Unfortunately it is not recived the importance. You can try the trail version. It is easy to learn iPlanet, than WS or WL.
i have not tried jBoss, but used J2EE sdk it is good for developer, since u get the latest version

I think weblogic is easier for beginers. websphere AS needs quite a steep learning curve, and it lacks good document too.
Good thing about JBoss is that, if you want to know something inside of container model, you can look into the source code. it is a good tool to play with for developers too.
