Yes, I am downlooading it. But I have Sun One Studio 1.4.1, Community Edition. I work on JSP and Servlets using that. So what else it's going to offer me? EJB support?
BTW, I am an admirer of SUN and always choose the product from SUN if I have other options also...

I'm not exactly sure what the comparison is. S1AS 7.0 is an EJB container, and Sun ONE Studio is a development tool.
If you are asking for a comparison between the Tomcat container bundled with Sun ONE Studio and S1AS, I'd say you get a lot more than EJB's. You get much more sophisticated management tools, vastly increased performances, EJB's, connection pooling, transactional support, RMI/IIOP support, commercial support, package based installation, and a whole bunch of other things.
In fact, I believe that S1AS will be bundled with Sun ONE Studio in the future. So it definately isn't an either/or decision between S1AS and Studio.

S1AS is a commercially development of the J2EE Reference Implementation (RI) along with iPlanet AS 6.x features. It's supported for production use, unlike the RI, more complex in its user features, and ties in to Sun's IDE very nicely. This makes the whole tool more like WebLogic and WebSphere, which dominate the commercial market.
I've taught support readiness training to Sun's tech support people on S1AS SE; there's a lot more in this product than the RI, in particular administrative control features, an embedded web server, and more. Most iPlanet AS 6.x services are includedor fused with J2EE; vestiges of the old Kiva stuff, like the C++ interface and the multi-process controller architecture, have been cleaned up and unified a great deal.
S1AS comes with the second major release of Solaris 9 media too, to help distribute the product widely. As a key component of Sun ONE, they naturally want everyone they can reach to try it.

So I left, I came home, and I ate some pie. And then I read this tiny ad:
