I am a Java certified programmer and a Java certified developer. I was laid of some time back and looking for a job. Unfortunately, I do not have any commercial app server i.e. Weblogic / WebSphere experience. So I am not getting any interview calls. Can you guys please recommend how I can study one of the above 2 app servers? Which one is easier to install & learn on my own? Also any books for Weblogic / Websphere? THANKS a lot!!!

I think that is debatable and highly dependent on location. For example, in the Philly area I see a larger demand for WebLogic than I do WebSphere. However, I am sure that this is not true for all places. Personally, I don't feel that you can go wrong with either. If need be, someone that is proficient with one App Server should be able to transition fairly easily to another.
