Which one is better and why? Your question is flawed. You haven't given us the criteria at which you are comparing the two. Are you most concerned about performance? Scalibility? Legacy Connectivity? Stability of the vendor? Ease of use? Price? Development Tools? Support?
It is impossible to say that one is better than the other. They both fully implement the J2EE Specification and are good choices large applications. Go download both and see for yourself.
I can tell you which one I prefer. I prefer WebLogic and JBoss(can't forget JBoss) because I find them easier to do development with. Then again I am also more familiar with WebLogic and JBoss than I am with WebSphere. Ask someone else and you are likely to get a different answer.
Besides, the majority of the time the decision on which Application Server to use is out of the Developers' or even the Architects' hands. Most of the time it is a business decision based on political issues, rarely on technical merit.

I think it is more meaningful to compare market share.
I remember reading a post in Javaranch before, saying weblogic was on top, having slight edge. But it was at least half a year ago. I don't know how things will change?
