I am new to JBoss and EJB. I understand that JBoss can host EJBs. Does that mean EJB's cannot be deployed in other application servers like tomcat etc?
I have come across many people mentioning JBoss and EJB together. What is the advantage if so of using EJB with JBoss? Please let me know.
JBoss is a company that does Open Source development, they support an Application Server called JBoss AS, that incorporates Tomcat as a Web container and can use either Tomcat or Apache as its WebServer. JBoss is the first open source application server to be granted "compatible" status by Sun.
And BTW it's a full blown J2EE App Server, so it does EJB etc.
