WebSphere need huge memory and CPU as well, but if you want use it only for testing purposes I think it will be ok.

Then could be JBoss an alternative for you, but I have a few experience with it.

Jboss is pretty good. It is J2EE 1.4 compliant unlike Weblogic. Websphere required lot of memory but I was able to run the version 6 server with 512 MB configuration. It is J2EE 1.4 compliant.

It also depends on the application is running within the server.
Read this topic about hardware requirements.

Saran is trying some samples so minimum memory should suffice

First : you should be used J2EE RI 1.4 from http://www.java.sun.com/j2ee (J2EE 1.4 Reference Implementation) , It's good for start.


Application Server
1. JBoss Application Server //Free
2. WebLogic Application Server
3. WebSphere Application Server

JBoss Application Server is good but user MUST take time in some config file of jboss because it's not standard for another J2EE Server (jboss 3) , But now, jboss 4 is have standard of J2EE 1.4 .

You can make JBOSS run the new EJB 3.0 code.

I can suggest you to start from BEA WebLogic 8.1. It's free (for developers :-)

But you need to install only BEA WebLogic Server! Forget about Workshop, Portal, Integration parts of WebLogic's platform.
Just server works rather good on my laptop Celeron 1Ghz/256mb/WinXP, so I shouldn't it will slow down your PC too much.

Personally I've started from JBoss, but you will miss documentation. WebLogic Server has good documention, and free (however with mistakes :-), but there are also a lot of articles dealing WebLogic Server.

Also, many J2EE IDE's support WebLogic. Elipse 3 requires Lomboz plug-in for it, but Intellij IDEA 4.5 has that support from the very beginning.
