Sir we used Tomcat5.5 server in our local system,now we need to make the application used through internet i.e through central server,as per my knowledge some thing like sun server or jboss server is used if i am correct they are webservers.so like that what are the servers that support java web applications?and how to configure them and host my web application in it such that they can be used through internet
Tomcat is a perfectly capable web server and servlet container. I use it for my personal web site. JBoss and Sun Glassfish are EJB containers. If you don't have EJB's, you don't need to use them. Making your application available on the internet has more to do with configuring your network than server choice. Are you going to host the application yourself? Do you have the kind of bandwidth and availability that your application requires? You may want to consider renting server space or a server with an ISP.
