In general, JBoss would be faster.  Searching for facts to back this up using "weblogic jboss comparison" found many links.  It really will depend on the app as either one could be better or there could be a negligible differences.

This one says JBoss is faster:

How about this one:

http://community.jboss.org/thread/85559?decorator=print&displayFullThread=true

As far as cheaper, it's hard to say.  I see some saying WL is 25K/cpu and some that JBoss is 40k/year support.  But the wiki has:
 "The JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) with management option 16 core bundle premium support costs $11,250 per year"
 So it depends on the support contract and number of CPUs.  The wiki also says complete pricing is availalbe for JBoss.

Weblogic is probably better for large numbers, but JBoss is probably better with memory.  I'm sure it would depend on the details of exactly what J2EE parts you were using, the database, and other specifics.  The links in that Jboss thread have some info on this.

From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java_Platform,_Enterprise_Edition
Java EE includes several API specifications, such as JDBC, RMI, e-mail, JMS, web services, XML, etc., and defines how to coordinate them. Java EE also features some specifications unique to Java EE for components

You would have to know the code and see what APIs are being used.
