JBoss vs Websphere: What are the differences?

Developers describe JBoss as "An open-source Java EE-based application server". An application platform for hosting your apps that provides an innovative modular, cloud-ready architecture, powerful management and automation, and world class developer productivity. On the other hand, Websphere is detailed as "Application and integration middleware". It is a highly scalable, secure and reliable Java EE runtime environment designed to host applications and microservices for any size organization. It supports the Java EE, Jakarta EE and MicroProfile standards-based programming models.

JBoss and Websphere can be categorized as "Web Servers" tools.
