So Tomcat has somehow a WebServer implicitly?

am I right?
then why do we need a web server like IIS, Apache etc?
I mean, for the enterprises it is scalable. but for individuals?

Tomcat has a built-in web server. For a single person's use (developer) this is just fine.

Even for small websites that don't get a lot of traffic, it is fine.

There is no need for you to use IIS or another webserver, as long as Tomcat can adequately handle your traffic.
