Tomcat is a web container.
and for it to act as a HTTP server, Apache and Tomcat are configured together..with apache as a HTTP web server and Tomcat as a Web Container.

A web server, as per my understanding, has only a web container.
On the other hand, the J2EE application server should have web container and the EJB container.


As far as the 2nd question goes: the services provide by the server to its container?
I think the container provides service to the server: by properly processing the requests which has a dynamic response. The only thing done by the web server is to forward the specific requests to the container.
