Web Server simply process your HTTP request and send you HTML page while application server has some processing then it sends you the HTML page. eg :
Apache is a web server and weblogic websphere or J2EE servers are application servers

Hi

There are lotes of different kinds of server (anything that responds to a client). But what I think you want to know is this:

  • Web server - think Apache servers up web content (HTML, etc) and can be extended with plugins (CGI, PHP, etc.)
  • Servlet Container - e.g. Tomcat, hosts servlets/jsps and used to serve dynamic content (usually to http clients)
  • EJB container - Used to host EJBs and can serve many clients.
  • Application server - Weblogic, Websphere, Glassfish, JBoss, etc. Typically consists of a web server, servlet container and EJB container. Often provides other stuff as well.


  • Depending on your needs, you would use some or all of the servers available. If you only have static content, then a web server will do. You can often implement all of an application using JSP/Servlets (and maybe a web server upfront). Occasionally, you will have a large scale, transactional system and you could use an EJB container (probably with the other servers as well).

    Hope this clears things up
