I have a java server application that I would like to write a web client for.

I need to decide whether to use Tomcat or Glassfish?

Any opinions on the matter?

Tomcat is a servlet container, and thus is well suited for deploying web applications.

Glassfish is a Java EE application server which means that besides providing a servlet container it also provides a bunch of other services such as messaging, EJBs and so on. It is way more than what you need for a web application if you don't plan on using the additional capabilities.
