apache is a software group
tomcat is a specific product of the apache group which works either as a standalone webserver, serving up HTML and JSP / Servlets or can work as a module to the Apache HTTPD webserver. The apache HTTP server is a more general and widely used server which can serv up HTML and work ith plugins to do PHP, Perl CGI, ASP and JSP / Servlets. when people say apache sometimes they mean the group, sometimes they mean apache http

Thanks Tim.
What I understood that Tomcat is specific product & works with JSP/Servlet(NOT with ASP, PHP, Perl). Where Apache HTTP server is more general for JSP, Servlet,ASP,PHP & Perl which also includes Tomcat. May I right?
Where can I find & download Apache HTTP server?
Thanks,
Angela

"Buy a man a burger, feed him for a day. Teach him how to make a great burger,
he's got Good Eats for life." --Alton Brown
Translation:
1) Visit www.google.com
2) Search for Apache HTTP server
Who knew?

apache http doesn't include tomcat until you specifically install tomcat but otherwise you are correct
also when you go to the apache site you will find tomcat under the 'jakarta' section, which is where all their java products are.

I miss the old days when I would think up a sinister scheme for world domination and you would show a little emotional support. So just look at this tiny ad:
