    JBoss and Tomcat

    substring Newbie

      Hello All,

      I am new to Java. Just installed Tomcat 4.1.24 and have been playing around with the sample servlets. Then I stumble across JBoss.

      Can someone please tell me what are the differences between JBoss and Tomcat?

      If I have already installed Tomcat, should I install the JBoss standalone or should I install the JBoss + Tomcat bundle (uninstall my old one first of course).

      Any help will be very much appreciated. =)

          JBoss and Tomcat are very different, but are often used together. Tomcat is a servlet/JSP container which services HTTP requests. JBoss is an EJB container which provides a rich environment for deploying componentized distributed applications. There are lots of good books on J2EE and EJB's out there which I'm sure will provide you with a more complete (and probably more accurate) explanation than I have.

            Hi.

            Does JBoss support JSP-servlets without Tomcat?

            Thanks in advance

              Hi,

              To run a JSP/Servlet, we need a servlet container.
              Normally, all the J2EE compliant Application servers come along with a servlet container.

              JBoss provids support for two servlet container.
              One is Tomcat and another one is Jetty.

              So, you have to use either of the servlet container whicjh is interagted with JBoss to run the servlet/jsp program.
