Tomcat is a container for jsp and servlet, meanwhile, sun provides a j2ee server with J2EE JDK, what's the different between them. can j2ee server take place of tomcat?

Helo ,
Tomcat is a Java enabled Webserver. thats all. that can understand java,jsp,servlet codes.

But J2EE is a bundle of servers. Its a open std . It allow you develop applications not only in web-based context , also using Ejb, corba,rmi.
for more , refer to's tutorial parts.

You can't run EJB on TOMCAT where as on sun J2EE Server,you can run EJB and Tomcat is basically an Servlet Container and sun J2EE is an application Server.
