Web servers don't act as application servers, but they can be configured to act as a front-end for application servers. The instructions are usually specific to both sides, ie depends on both the web server and application server sides.

I'm not sure what you're after, but it's generally possible to 1) run the app server on the same host as the web server, and 2) have the web server be the app server. Is one of these what you are asking about?

Y'all seem to be confident that you have the same definitions of web and app. Is web HTTP like IBM IHS and app anything with Java like a servlet or EJB container?
