    JBossWeb Server vs. Tomcat&Apache

    Xabier Cenoz Newbie

      Hi everyone

      After reading some documentation about the JBoss Web Server I am still confused about something:
      which are the real differences between JBoss Web Server and Tomcat?

      I know that it is common to integrate Tomcat with Apache Web Server using the mod_jk module. In this way, Apache Web Server will serve the static content itself, and will redirect to Tomcat the dynamic requests (jsp, etc...)

      Is it necessary to connect Apache Web Server to JBoss Web to improve performance? Or is Apache already integrated in Jboss? I have read that Jboss includes APR (Apache Portable Runtime) but i dont really know what it means.

      Thanks for any kind of advice
      Best regards
