I agree that Weblogic and Oracle are not cost effective.  What was your experience with Weblogic/Oracle like?

wouldn't that really apply to *any* technology you decide to deploy?  + J2EE is not cost effective, app servers come @ a pretty cost in terms of scalability (ie WebLogic, WebSphere, etc).  From what I have *heard*, much can be said in regards to LAMP + things like mod_backhand ( that can take you a long way ... (wishing i would have done it instead of being sucked into WebLogic/Oracle during my heyday).  i too am interested in hearing other deployment experiences.
