Understanding Application Server --- WebLogic, WebSphere, 9iAS, OC4J and others
Posted on 2003-03-27
Would appreciate reply on this please.
I am new to Application Servers and all I know is there are couple of Application Servers available right now and most famous among those are WebLogic, WebSphere, 9iAS. As I understand, application servers are needed and used for J2EE architecture involving developing and deploying EJB components.
What I want to understand is..
1). While there are so many app servers available, How does a company's architect decide which one of to chose? whats the use of WebSphere over WebLogic or vice versa? How should I decide which One should I be using?
2). which app servers are available in the market other than I mentioned? Do we need App Server as I understood for developing and deploying EJB components only? or is there any other purpose of app servers?
would appreciate help plz
