hi sachin,
Actually this is a very wide topic but just a short exp. below.
Apache Web Server: The most widely used HTTP Server in the world
developed by the Apache Project Organisation. U can visit their at http://www.apache.org/ and download free the latest version of the server.
Java Web Server: Javasoft's efforts to implement %100 Java Web Server. Wasnot accepted as much as Apache. Easier to configure than Apache but lacks of performance.
Tomcat: An application server created by Java and then passed to the Jakarta Project Org for further development. Visit http://www.jakarta.org/ and download a free copy. It listens to port 8080 and implements a JVM running on the server side. actually you run your servlets on this app. server and serve content and response queries from clients.
J2EE: Java Platform 2 Enterprise addition. Lots of APIs and classes to build enterprise apps. Take a look at the related forum at Javaranch.
JSP: It does the same thing like servlets but in a different way. You can insert java code inside html code using specail tags. Increases the performace if you have more static content in your page. Again refer to Sun's web site and releted forums in this site. Heaps of information.
Web Logic: commercial HTTP server. Comes with lots of APIs for database connectivity as well.
EJB: Enterprise Java Beans. Reusable java components for fast app. development.
Hope that gives a little idea.
cheers,
Gokhan

Hi sachin,
I'm going to move this over to the Servlet and JSP forum as it's not related to Programmer Certification
