          A: Please read the "General Questions" section of the FAQ page: http://www.jboss.org/faq.jsp

          JBoss 3 comes integrated with Jetty by default.
          There is a JBoss/Tomcat bundle available from jboss.org.
          In this bundle Tomcat replaces Jetty because some people are used to Tomcat.

          Jetty/Tomcat takes care of the JSP/Servlet part of J2EE, JBoss handles the EJB stuff.

            I was unable to find this on the FAQ page, are you sure that you have looked at the most recent static FAQ page? I am wondering this same thing.

            I am currently trying to port a .WAR away from a proprietary system (it calls on libraries out side the .WAR). It will simply be a Servlet/JSP/Bean environment. Is JBoss overkill? Is there an speed/scalability adavantage of JBoss or Jetty or Tomcat?

              AFAIK for JSP+Servlet either Jetty or Tomcat are enough.

              So you don't need JBoss now. But if you ever need one of the following it will be easily available if you used JBoss right from the start:
              - EJBs
              - CMP2
              - Clustering (even for JSP/Servlet)
              - WebServices

              Some consider Jetty to be faster than Tomcat.
