Can Someone Tell me what is the difference between Web Server and a Web Application.?
Web Server is a computer program that delivers (serves) content, such as web pages, using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), over the World Wide Web.
Web Application is an application that is accessed over a network such as the Internet or an intranet
A Web-Server (By definition) acts as a traffic director between a client (user) and the application (webapplication)
A Web-Server (Colloquially, also confused with web container) is the repository program which helps the application(web application) to execute
A Web Application is the program which the client (user) wants to access over the net.
Hope that helps.
