Very informative article.
Have a query regarding Weblogic 8.1 that implements teh J2EE 1.3 spec. Since your article says:
J2EE 1.3 provides some specification with the packaging standard; however, there are still no standards on how to deploy an application — this is where the initiative like JSR 88 (the J2EE Deployment API) comes in.
does it mean that Weblogic 8.1 does not use this.
I am aware that WebLogic 9.0 is J2EE 1.4 compliant and uses JSR 88 implementation for deployments, but not sure if WebLogic 8.1 uses JSR 88 as an extension?
Thanks and Regards,
