jboss complys JEE including web and ebj containers but tomcat only has web jsp/servlet container. why someone wants tomcat integrated to jboss? i think jboss does more tomcat. why you want both engines running together for you? thanks. tony
JBoss and JOnAS are 2 open-source products that implement the JEE stack. They provide their own EJB and JMS subsystems, but rather than re-invent the JSP/servlet framework, they decided to borrow one that already worked and let someone else worry about keeping that part of the package updated and repaired, so they could spend more effort on the parts that made them unique.
Both JBoss and JOnAS actually support a plug-in JSP/servlet architecture, and you have the choice of Tomcat or jetty. Jetty is supposed to provide higher performance, but I believe it's less functional. Tomcat is more popular, although some of that is because people also tend to use the stand-alone Tomcat more than they do stand-alone jetty.
