I was wondering if someone could give a brief explanation on what Apache and TomCat are and some reasons on why someone should choose them over other products (other than being free). Thanks.

hi, rob , for the question, what is tomcat, you should refer to link
and why people using tomcat is of course it is free as major factor, some other reasons like stability , easy to use ..it did a very good job considering if you only want to use tomcat for jsp and servlet processing, it running is light weight as compare with j2EE application server which consist other components that you may not need..
further points like supported and intergrated with major IDE , finally, it is extensible if you want to plugin some nice framework like struts
