The performance and stability characteristics of the BEA, Sun and IBM
offerings are different, and in my experience it is difficult to hail
one of them as a clear winner.
If you _are_ going to mention vendor-specific offerings, it may be idea
to mention all three, since they are all pretty decent and available on
x86 and x86_64 (IBM has a beta of 1.5 for PPC; BEA works on IA64).
