Hi
what's the difference between j2ee application server and web server? i know that application server also receives an http request and sends back an http response.
thanks,

web server serves static content, and sometimes allows plugin to run scripts (typically cgi type scripts, perl, C modules etc.)
j2ee application server implements whole or part of the Sun J2EE specification; a full J2EE container has a servlet container, EJB container, and a lot of services (security, transactions, threading etc.)
often these two are used tohether: the web server servers the HTML, CSS, images etc. The J2EE server does all the dynamic content, and does the backend.
