Hi Senthil,
application server and web server are the 2 basic types of server.
Application server is used to deploy the application on it. This application is may be comprised of EJB, Beans , Object database etc.
On the web server we can deploy the web pages like servlets, jsp, asp. These pages we can see through the Web brower so that we can call them web servers.
Jrun is just a application server, so as per my previous message we cannopt use it as a web server. If you want to use a web server alogwith this JRun application server then following is the list
- IIS web server
- IPlanet Web Server
- Netscape enterprise Server
- Apache

Not entirely true. Application Servers handle http requests just the same as a Web Server. With that being said, it is not recommended to use an Application Server as a Web Server in production. But for testing it is fine.
