Hi All,

Apache Tomcat called as Web-server and WebLogic called as Application Server

What is the difference between Web-server and Application Server.
What is the role of Tomcat and WebLogic in respect to these servers.

Thank you.

Tomcat is in fact a servlet container. It does not support EJBs.

Weblogic Express is also simply a servlet container.

The Weblogic Application Server combines a servlet container with an EJB container and other functionality that it needs to classify as an J2EE Application Server (in addition to all sorts of vendor specific extensions).
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
