Hi All,

Could you please let me know the difference between Apache server & Tomcat server ?. I remember something like Apache HTTP server is only for static contents and it doesn't support Servlets & JSP's, Tomcat server is for dynamic contents. Is that correct ?

Please let me know the other differences also.

Thanks in advance.

Apache is written in C, and there are many, many modules available to support server-side programming in all sorts of languages, Perl, Python, Ruby, etc., as well as modules to do all sorts of other interesting stuff. Apache does a lot of things.
