Does anyone know of a good paper that compares WebLogic vs WebSphere application servers.
We need to make a decision on our project and these are the only two options for us.
Thanks

We did a lot of research on this and never found any white paper that was any good.

There was no white paper that clearly addressed this question.
Both of them have their relative advantages and disadvantages.
WebLogic:
1) Always tries to comply with latest specifications for J2EE, EJB etc in a timely manner.
2) Many projects are already implemented and working well using this app server, lot of good programmer participation in their forums.
WebSphere:
1) Always way behind with respect to complying with specifications. Example: EJB2.0 out for some time and websphere is only complied EJB1.2 when EJB2.0 was released. ( So you loss some cool features like Message driven beans etc that are supported by WebLogic).
2) It has seamless integration with their products like MQSeries, MQ framework etc. But, if you are going to use only latest of technologies (like no case of integrating with legacy systems) then MQ series is of no great use. There are other good alternatives for cheaper price for their app server related products.
So, it all depends on your project situation and what kind of layers you have to touch(like oldline main frames for data availability etc).
WebLogic has the major market share due to its relative merits on different fronts, but WebSphere is catching up on the market share issue. And WebSphere is IBMs product, so they will we there to fight out this app server war and add or update their supporting products by aquisitions etc.
Its finally your call.
Kishore.
