Hi bipin, As far as my knowledge, Websphere is said to be ons of the best webservers for use with servlets. But this server is quite slow in operation, it takes up also quite a huge amount of memory. If you want a faster webserver, then weblogic is a great one to use.

application servers are ok. I want to know about web servers. Most probbably free ones.
I've tried quite a few and still prefer Resin for most uses. It's standards-compliant, fast, easy to install and configure and free for development. Tomcat is the official reference platform, but it can be clumsy and slow, and tends to need a lot of restarting. Jetty is free, standards-compliant and very configurable. Jetty is a great choice for embedded servers or other resource-constrained uses. BajieServer is also free and pretty compliant (with API 2.3 at least) and great for testing as it doesn't expand war files into a directory but serves them direct from the war. GNU paperclips is a supposedly ongoing free servlet container project, but it can be hard to find a usable download. Any more suggestions from anyone ?
RESIN RULES, ALL THE OTHERS DROOL! All kidding aside I run 7 sites, 2 with Resin & the other five with different versions of Tomcat. I find Resin 10 times easier to setup, implement (I LOVE that .conf file setup!) & it is definately the fastest thing out there. I also have to add that the people out at cauco are the nicest, most devoted folks I have ever dealt with. How many companies will put a developer on the phone with the main programmer when he has a problem....I kid you not folks, they did it for me! They are awesome!
