This is probably a stupid question, but what is WebSphere?? Is it just a java based Frontpage program?

IBM Websphere is #2 Enterprise application server that supports Enterprise Java Beans, Java Server pages and other J2EE technologies.
BEA Weblogic is #1 server that does all that but better.

WebSphere is actually a software product family. Here is a partial list:
WebSphere Application Server -- this is a J2EE container/server. The current release supports J2EE 1.3; version 6, planned for late Q2 I think, will support J2EE 1.4.
WebSphere Studio Site Developer -- an entry-level development IDE for HTML, JSP, etc, but does not support development of EJB's.
WebSphere Studio Application Developer -- an advanced IDE for development of all/any J2EE component.

Hi, Aleksey,
you forgot to add "in my opinion".
Or could you give an independent source of such an information?
At least, javaranch forum shows websphere is twice as popular as weblogic

Hi Aleksey,
You're kind of lost of how the market shares are at this moment.
WebSphere is #1
WebLogic is #2
And the way I see it, WebLogic will continue to loss market share, companies want to do more that just create EJB's and JSP's, I'm so sorry for BEA.

Websphere is #1
Weblogic used to be #1 but they lost ground to IBM the person that said Bea is #1 just happens to use Bea and we respect his Opinion.
But it is not opinion but a Fact with numbers that Websphere is #1.
I don't work for IBM but I have used websphere in the past.
Take care.
