Why are you choosing between the latest version of WebLogic and a back version of WebSphere? WebSphere's current release is 5.02, with version 5.1 coming out within days...

Out of those two, I'd definitely pick WebLogic 8.1.
However, if you'd get to pick between WL 8.1 and WS 5.0, I'd put some weight on WL 8.1 probably having some amount of nasty bugs that nobody has yet found...

I think it suffices to say that WebSphere 4.0 is, what, three years older than WebLogic 8.1? I once had to use WebSphere 4.0 and that was simply a nightmare compared to WebLogic 6.1, which was the appserver on the following project.

Vela is the code name for WAS 6.0, due next year. We are not allowed to discuss features of products that are that far away from release without an Non Disclosure Agreement.

Kyle,
Does WAS detect connection leaks?
Why do we need to give J2C authentication details when we create a Datasource? I havent used it in other servers?

Nothing bad to say about WAS 5.0. I've played around with it on my spare time so I haven't seen it in real action, but those things I did try worked like charm.

(1) Yes, it detects them and recovers them (there is a reaper thread that reclaims lost connections).
(2) We are doing this in anticipation of the JDBC 3.0 spec, where there is a merger between JDBC and JCA. Everyone else will have to start doing this soon.

You're right. Vela is not English, it's Greek. Vela is southern hemisphere constellation. The story on the constellation Vela can be found here.
