Smackdown II: WebSphere versus .NET

Now this is an interesting challenge from IBM:

I wonder... is this really OS/2, the Sequel?

Comments, anyone?

IMHO, this whole discussion was written by PR departments --- lots of broad
brush insinuation, very little on details.

J2EE write once run anywhere? Please. Nor is .NET at the moment. And the
J2EE arguments omits the whole "Java is cool but slower than molases" thing.

WebSphere doesn't run on OS/2 but on zOS. This is IBM's view of an
Enterprise class server:

MS isn't even close for this kind of applications.

Bo,
It really depends on what you consider to be WebShere.

http://www-3.ibm.com/software/info1/...tab=highlights

"WebSphere" is marketing's attempt to get brand recognition. Personally it
only confuses the managers whose developers actually need to use the
products. Oh you know WebSphere then you can use this RPG compiler on the
AS/400 (yes the RPG compiler on the AS/400 now falls under the WebSphere
Studio brand of products).

One variety or another of WebSphere application server runs on the zSeries,
the iSeries, the xSeries, the pSeries, as well as Linux, Windows XP, and
Windows 2003, plus a number of other platforms.

WebSphere refers to both the development tools and to the Web/Application
server.

Hope this helps
