If an adv requires WebSphere experience (or JBoss/Weblogic for that matter) , can I assume they are using EJB3 (or, well, 2.x). Because my experience is on Struts+Spring+Hibernate in Tomcat. Quite often, I see adv requiring WebSphere experience without identifying specific Java technology experience they are looking for.

To rephrase my question, if a company is using Struts+Spring+Hibernate, would it be normal that they are using Tomcat (or other Servlet-container-only server) rather than some full JEE app server?

No. For WebSphere, companies are likely to be on 2.X and just migrating to 3.0. (although knowing 3.0 is an asset since their existing staff likely doesn't have experience.) For JBoss/Weblogic it could be either. IBM WebSphere was late in the game and the EJB 3 version hasn't been out as long.

Also no. They could be using anything. Why would it matter though. Usually the Java skills are more important than the app server.

Heck, Websphere 3.5 was released in 1998, and I had the displeasure of using it from 2001 to 2004. If their staff doesn't have experience in it, I'm not sure who to feel more sorry for. ;)

Unless it's an admin position, if they're insistent on specific app-server knowledge without a specific reason why, that's usually a good sign that they don't know what they're doing.

Cheers!
