This is the e-mail i got from IBM.

IBM WebSphere Application Server V.4, Advanced Edition is the
premier Java-based Web application server. It provides a rich
application deployment environment that streamlines development
while giving you the flexibility to adapt as your needs change.
To make it easier than ever, WebSphere is the first Java application
server to be offered at no charge for development use only. Even
though we aren't releasing this option for V.4 to the general public
until next week, you can download it right now at http://www.ibm.com/websphere/welcome and get 60 days of free
access to our online technical support team. Think of it as your
reward for all of your interest in WebSphere. If you download this
code, we'll be sure you get advance access to all of our new code.
V4 is the first app server to deliver everything you need in one place:
speed, reliability, scalability, unparalleled integration capabilities
and
the broadest open standards support, especially for Web Services. It's
got all the capabilities you need to deliver flexible applications
fast,
including:
- A comprehensive open standards platform that includes XML and
is fully J2EE-certified.
- It's the first Web Services-ready app server, with protocols like
SOAP, UDDI and WSDL.
- Upgraded Java Message Service support (JMS) to JMS-XA
(eXtended Architecture) to provide for coordinated transactions
involving reliable, asynchronous messaging through MQSeries
- An implementation of Java 2 Connectivity (J2C) and an enhanced
set of application adapters for enterprise systems, including SAP,
PeopleSoft, CICS, IMS host integration and more.
- A new Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) cache is
provided to store name server requests. As a result, application speed
is increased 2-3 times.
To get your hands on V.4 code for development right now, simply
visit us at http://www.ibm.com/websphere/welcome.

Oh NO!!!
WAS 4.0 requires 512 MB RAM. Though i have not installed it as yet. It is already difficult to have a 256 MB machine in the company and now they want us to install 512.

Good News is that i have installed WAS 4 on my system and it works really well.
Things have changed a lot since WAS 3.54 and 4.
There is a hell of a difference!!!
Most important of all things have become really easy for people from weblogic to migrate to Websphere.
Try it and you will love it.
