BEA, IBM engage in fight for speed

BEA Systems Inc. has challenged IBM Corp. to build a Web service in fewer than 14 steps and has claimed that its WebLogic Workshop platform requires fewer than one-fifth the steps to build a Web service than does archrival IBM's WebSphere Studio Application Developer.

BEA said developers can create a simple Web service in five steps with Workshop -- as opposed to the 28 steps it takes using WebSphere. Big Blue retorted that BEA's statements were "lame" and countered BEA's challenge by suggesting that both companies submit tools to an independent testing lab.
