I know this is not the right forum, but I'm interested 
in what you people might have to say about this. 

The project I have been working on selected IBM WebSphere 
as its base infrastructure. The tool seems good, though a 
tad expensive. Anyway, when I started looking for something 
that made a reality of the much mentioned separation 
between content and presentation, I realized WebSphere 
did not have anything that provided such separation. Indeed, 
after some research, I found that Cocoon is the most 
advanced implementation of technologies that achieve 
this separation (go Cocoon!). Together with this, came 
the realization that actually what we are using from 
WebSphere is a very tiny portion, and that we could 
(probably; this is not proven fact yet) move our whole 
architecture to JServ/Tomcat, Cocoon, etc., all freely 
available tools (I'm all for it, but I hope management 
doesn't get in the way). So, I decided to research a bit 
further and come up with a comparison of WebSphere (or 
WebLogic, for that matter) and whatever components 
running on top of Apache (such as JServ and Cocoon). 
It seems that ALL we have done on WebSphere could be 
implemented on these OpenSource tools, with one (possible) 
exception: EJBs. We are not really using EJBs at this 
point (and maybe we never will), but that still begs 
the question: is it possible to write EJBs on the OpenSource 
world of JServ+friends? 

Sorry if this took so long, but I wanted to provide a 
little context on where I'm coming from. Any wisdom is 
greatly appreciated. Thanks, 

Gonzalo A. Diethelm
