Whether Tomcat is Web Server or Application Server?
What is the difference between Web Server and Application Server?

There is no clear definition of what an application server is. In general an application server can create dynamic pages (and hence run an application) for the browser. Tomcat has a servlet engine and can jun servlets and JSP. Hence it is not a simple web server like apache. But it is usually configured along with Apache.
