Yes Tony I have waited for this day for a long long time. When I has started out it was a Herculian task as the Weblogic forum was started more than 6 months before this forum. But we all have sucessfully done it. Hope WebSphere surpasses Weblogic in quantam sales too with its WAS 4.0 version.

It's amazing what a book promotion will do: it increases the posting rate dramatically in the relevant forum.
Whatever, I think BEA still has the edge in market share and adherence to the J2EE standards. Still, that may change.
I'm not sure when it turned into a race for you but now I consider it, it's not all that surprising that there are more cries for help in the Websphere forum anyway. After all, Weblogic Server is widely considered the easier app server to set up and use, so less people should need help over there.
Of course, now I'm just inviting flames, but consider this: I just added another post to the WAS forum tally...
Please direct all flames to the Weblogic Servers forum

Hi George,
Good to see you in this forum. Looks like people do are looking out for whats going on with Websphere. WebSphere is catching a lot of attention now. Thats good. Any how with WebSphere 4.0 , Weblogic may be passe.

Book promotions have taken place in Weblogic forum too!!!

Try out WebSphere 4.0 and see how easy it is to use. It is totally J2EE compliant and you will start loving the ease with which one can develop and deploy applications.
I do agree however that WebSphere 3.5 was not a great product with respect to the learning curve. Other than this it is a good product.
Rahul.

umm... I don't remember that. You see, there have hardly been any books on Weblogic in the past. Even now it is poorly represented with only a few books that are specifically about WLS. But I may try to set up a promotion with the Zadrozny WLS book sometime.

I might just do that. Is there an evaluation version available for download?

To try out WebSphere 4.0 follow this link here
You will need to download the documentation too. This documentation comes by the name of InfoCenter. You need to download this from Version 4.0 English InfoCenter
By the way I am presently working on Weblogic Application Server and Weblogic Commercer Server for Nokia
