Can anyone tell me what exactly is the diference between web server & application server?? Currently I am using Apache Tomcat/4.1.34-LE-jdk14 for studying jsp.I think its a webserver as it only catains JSP & servlet container & not EJB container.SO is this the only difference between web & application server that it doesnt contain EJB container??
Please explain me this.

This is not a JSP issue, and has been discussed to death in the Tomcat forum. Please reference the existing topics there.
