I do not think that Websphere is simply an add-on to a web server..I just come back from Solutions 99 and I can tell you that Websphere is in the center of all IBM strategies! Websphere has 3 flavours (Standard Edition, Advanced Edition and Enterprise Edition). The latest has not been announced on the AS/400 because it includes the Component Broker Connector ORB (written in C++) which has not been ported to the OS/400. Servlets and JSP are one approach to web development but the goal is to run EJB Applications on the AS/400 with entity/session beans which then accesses several technologies or environments like Domino, MQ series, TX series, others connectors to other RDBMS... For example, EJB for RPG shops will wrap existing applications with the AS/400 toolbox for Java. Websphere manage the DB2 accesses through pools, it also manages the sessions, look at security issues, performances, etc..
Furthermore Websphere is available on many platforms, AS/400, NT, Novell, 390, AIX, etc... and runs on many web server type, even Microsoft IIS....
