Hi, I just want to get some insight which portion in Apache Tomcat software is called Web Container and which portion is called Web Server. Please advice.

I advise not to use the term "web container", as it is confusing, and not used outside of the Java world. Tomcat is both a web server and a servlet container.

Sure. Which portion (folder or files) of the software plays the role of web server and which portion plays the role of servlet container

There is no separation of these functions - it is just one piece of server software, after all.
