Why would you use JBoss if you're not using EJBs?

Dear All

Thanks for quick response

I want to improve and enhance the performance, scalability and transaction processing of my web application (JSP/Sevrlet, Structs), using much more sophisticated server, I want to know if I use Jboss , I can able to get such improving comparing Tomcat (is there any feature that the tomcat is not supporting capering Jboss )

JBoss uses Tomcat as it's servlet/jsp container.
If you're not using the features of JBoss (such as EJB), then using it, instead of Tomcat, is adding unnecessary overhead and complexity.
