I have been working/implementing solution with JBoss app server for many years, but I am completly new to JBoss Web Server, so I have few questtions:
1) Is JBoss web server, at the same time a full app server.
2) For HA websites I am used to implement a layer for servers (web servers) load balanced by software or hardware, and a second layer of servers (application server) in a cluster environment.
So,here the question, With Jboss Web Server, do I need these two layers of server, or I could have a set of jboss web servers in a cluster, load balanced environment without losing performance.
I know this is a very deep topic, I am just looking for some highlights.....
1) No, it is a servlet container (rebranded Tomcat 6)
2) Since JBoss Web Server is not an app server, I don't think this question applies (there is no second layer, or the second layer could be JBoss AS)
