    JBoss Questions

    James Newbie

      Hi I'm learning about jsp and have been told to get Tomcat as a local server. Just wondering if JBoss is better? If so why? What extras does it offer or do over Tomcat?

      So go on.. sell it to me! :)

          JBoss is a J2EE application server while Tomcat is a web container. You can use Tomcat for deploying webapplications that use servlets and JSPs. If you are only going to be learning/using JSPs Tomcat should be sufficient for your needs. JBoss may be an overkill for your purposes. You could also download a Jboss dist bundled with Tomcat and use that. Check out jboss.org to see all the neat features that it provides you !!!

            I have got Tomcat and all setup etc if I download JBoss can they both run alongside each other?

            Also can i use it to test out asp, php, cgi, ssi etc?

              They sure can. But if you download jboss, it already comes with either tomcat or jetty setup. I don't think you can run asp and php pages in tomcat.
