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!!!

While I'll agree that Weblogic may be easier to learn, I would contend that there are more openings for WebSphere.

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.

Also, don't rule out JBoss.

p.s. I'd say go for WebLogic too.

In the Baltimore/DC market - I see nothing about WebLogic, and a lot of WebSphere. however, I'd learn JBoss, and say you can do anything they can do better. <smile>

Probably JBoss as many other servers aren't "officially" supported on Win95/98/Me.

Thanks Simon,
I am trying to download Jboss3.0 version but every time the system goes unstable at the last moment ( downloading through broadband connection
).
Did anyone experience this?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
