WebLogic v/s WebSphere Application Servers


Application Servers are classified based on the following features:
  • Ease of Administration
  • Clustering
  • Scalability
  • Availability
Below are the key differences between the WebLogic and WebSphere application servers:
  • WebSphere tends to focus more on integration, connectivity and web services. WebLogic has focused more on emerging J2EE standards and ease of use.
  • WebLogic has default Transaction Attribute as “Supports” but WebSphere doesn’t have any default Transaction attribute.
  • WebLogic is easier to setup "out-of-the-box".
  • WebLogic is way ahead in implementing latest specifications.
  • WebSphere is available for more platforms than WebLogic (e.g. IBM mainframes).
  • WebSphere has all IBM product stack to back it up.
  • WebSphere has more integrated IDEs.
  • WebLogic has a bigger community (more support).
Why to Go for WebSphere Migration:
  • WebSphere is cheaper as compared to other application servers. Its starts around 10 K per CPU per year.
  • WAS console easier to use as compared to WebLogic which has a lot of options to fill with.
  • WebSphere is actually a suite of products; it is having Express, Base and Network deployment application servers and WSAD as the development tool.
  • If your application needs only support for JSP and Servlet, go for Express version. For complete J2EE specification goes for Base. If you are doing clustering and load balancing go for Network deployment.
  • If you’re doing clustering, load balancing, Deploying on multiple number of Systems then it is better to go for WebSphere products, it is like one-stop shop, and you will get every thing for complete e-business application.
  • WebSphere’s administration console is really good, easy to maintain your application and for security setting.
