am I right?
then why do we need a web server like IIS, Apache etc?
I mean, for the enterprises it is scalable. but for individuals?

Tomcat has a built-in web server. For a single person's use (developer) this is just fine.

Even for small websites that don't get a lot of traffic, it is fine.

There is no need for you to use IIS or another webserver, as long as Tomcat can adequately handle your traffic.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
