Tomcat is a "servlet container". That is, it will run servlets and JSPs. In addition is server static web content.
JBossAS is a Java EE application server. It need to not only provide a servlet container (which it uses Tomcat to provide), but must also serve EJBs, messaging services, and a whole host of other services.
That is the basic difference.
What do you mean a server static content???, so It means that Jboss is a server dynamic content???
Thx for the reply
Sorry, typo. I meant "it serves static web content" In other words, it can serve HTML, CSS, GIF and other such content to web browsers.
Ok PeterJ, thank you very much now is more clear.... :D
