This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
It use "software" word, thus is it speak about software architecture?
But sometimes it seems to speak about hardware, for example
What is yours thought?
If I have a classical j2ee application with jsp/servlets (presentation tier) and EJBs (business tier) and I deploy web container and EJB container in the same single app server in the same single physical server, is this 2 tier or 3 tier?
And if I have the RDBMS in the same single physical server too, this is 3, 2 or 1 tier?
I think it is somewhat of both. In your case, you chose to deploy it on server - but your architecture allows it to be deployed to several servers: the web components could go to web server, and EJB components could live on a application server. Usually, in J2EE application, you would also access database, which can live in its own server box, right? So, in classical J2EE architecture you have 3 tiers, even when you choose to collapse some of them for the time being.
Hope that helps,

Thank you, you help.
I think the same of you, but I was not sure and want other people confirmations
