Hi All,

Apache Tomcat called as Web-server and WebLogic called as Application Server

What is the difference between Web-server and Application Server.
What is the role of Tomcat and WebLogic in respect to these servers.

Thank you.

Tomcat is in fact a servlet container. It does not support EJBs.

Weblogic Express is also simply a servlet container.

The Weblogic Application Server combines a servlet container with an EJB container and other functionality that it needs to classify as an J2EE Application Server (in addition to all sorts of vendor specific extensions).
