Hi,

Web Server is just meant for serving requests coming from the client(mostly browsers). While Application server would have a Servlet Container, EJB container, Transaction Services, JNDI Services and a lot more to offer along with the web server! You can call Tomcat is a kind of mini-App. server as it only has very few of such capabilities.
