Hi all,

I came across this question in an interview.

I was like what is the web server we use in the weblogic application server. Does't Weblogic come with a web/servlet container. Is web server different from a servlet container. Can we use Tomcat along side with weblogic. Finally is Tomcat an app server or web server.

With Regards

Q- what is the web server we use in the weblogic application server?
Answer - HTTP web server

Q - Does't Weblogic come with a web/servlet container?
Answer - Yes

QIs web server different from a servlet container?
Answer - Yes. Web server is a server which basically use to handle all incoming request to a particular port/application and serves clients request accordingly.
Servlet Container is a compiled, executable program using which we can run our Servlet and JSPs.The Servlet container is the intermediary between the Web server and the servlets in the container. The container loads, initializes, and executes the servlets.

Q - Can we use Tomcat along side with weblogic?
Answer - I think , you can. but not sure. Practically, you will never use Tomcat with Weblogic.

Q- Finally is Tomcat an app server or web server?
Answer - Tomcat is web server and Servlet container but it is not app server.
