Hi,
I have free versions of websphere and weblogic server. Is it possible can i install websphere and weblogic server in the same system with different port numbers. Please suggest me the possible solution for installing the two servers in the same system.
Thanks & Regards,
M.S.Raman.

hi,
it is possible but you should think about it. do you really need
two app servers at the same time ?
Cause if they are not running at the same time you don't need to set
different ports. Be aware that Websphere and Weblogic need a lot
of memory.

both server are resource hungry, so think again whether u want to install both the servers. if u've decided to install both the server make sure that neither of them is running as windows service. start the server manually when u need it.

Hi Oliver & Subramaniam,
Thanks for your suggestion. I'll try to install both the servers in the same system and run the server once at a time.
Is it possible can a application in websphere (say a servlet/ejb/jms) can interact with another application in weblogic. As you said it will take more resource but i don't thing that it won't affect this mechanism from running successfully. What about the transaction for this system. If it is two differents whether is it possible to maintain everything in the same transaction.
Thanks & Regards,
M.S.Raman.

By default, WebLogic and Websphere run on different ports anyways. You shouldn't have any problems running them on the same machine. I have multiple versions of both on my workstation and handful of other Application Servers...

Servlets will run in separate containers so they cannot share session. You can do it with EJBs and JMS.

WebSphere and Weblogic are Enterprise application servers for Java. Do a search or go to www.ibm.com and www.bea.com respectively.

Thanks William. Even EJB Containers also be different. So why is it not possible?
Say for example I am using www.AAA.com deployed in Websphere send the request to www.BBB.com deployed in weblogic. I am not sure about the realtime requirements for this type? Because I knew application deployed in one app server can be deployed in another app server. What i want to know is whether is it practically possible for the transaction in different app server.
I don't have much idea about the transaction . Whether the transactions are container dependent?.
Thanks in advance.

From my J2ee application if i can able to interact with any other application say SAP application using XML messages, they why is not possible, transaction in this case?
Thanks & Regards,
