Pradeep,
JBoss is free. It is a full fledged app server, so you can use Servlets/JSPs/EJBs.

Many many thanks to both of you. What is "WebLogic Server for dev"? Is there a version for dev? Can't I use it for production?
I hope JBoss and Sun servers are completely free?

You need a licence for live WebLogic Server use. JBoss is free for live, I think, but you have to pay for support.

Hi Pradeep,

You can freely download WebLogic server from bea�s site. The bad news is that the trail version will expire after 30-60 days (I don�t remember exactly). The good news is that unlike most of the Windows software, WebLogic won�t write anything to the Window�s registers. Hence after 60 days you can remove the BEA_HOME folder and reinstall it again; is that simple. For a local development environment this could be acceptable though.
Regards.

For WebLogic Server, there is an unlimited development licence. So, I and several of my colleagues freely use this server for dev for years. However, we undoubtedly pay BEA a lot for licensing of the production servers.
