We are going to be implementing an Internet application utilizing the WebSphere Application Server. I’m new to WebSphere and just want to make sure I understand what it is used for.
It the last environment I was in we used a Cold Fusion Server and developed the application using Cold Fusion Studio. The reason for using this was to cut down the amount of time to develop the application (using Cold Fusion Studio) and the ease connecting the application to the Oracle Database (the server used Oracle’s native drivers).
The question is – Is the WebSphere product (Server and Studio) comparable to the Cold Fusion product? Are they both meant to do the same thing, or is there another function(s) the WebSphere product provides?
