Hi,

Can any one help out to get difference between Tomcat 4.0 and 5.0?

Hi anil,
tomcat 5.0 is niether a application server nor a web server you can say it is only a servlet container.

Tomcat 4.x supports J2EE versions up to JSP 1.2 and Servlet 1.3.
Tomcat 5.0 supports J2EE versions up to JSP 2.0 and Servlet 1.4
Tomcat 5.5 is the same as 5.0 but is built with and works with Java1.5.
Tomcat 6.x will support the new JEE5 specification.

The difference between the major release numbers in Tomcat is directly related to the versions of the Servlet and JSP specs that are supported.

There is a (blue) table right on the front page of the Tomcat website that shows the correlation.
http://tomcat.apache.org

Tomcat is an application server with full webserver functionality.
It can also be used as a component in other webservers such as Apache httpd or MS-IIS.
