Hello,

I am developing an e-commerce website using servlets and jsp and tiles, .
i want to know whether there will be a performance difference when running the same application in a web server(tomcat) and application server(JBoss) 5.0

Well, JBoss AS uses Tomcat as its servlet container so it should be much the same. But then, if you are only using servlet technologies why use JBoss?

If you use only servlet/jsp I suggest tomcat because is more lightweight than an application server like jboss
