I have downloaded and installed NetBeans 4.1 (90 MB), that has automatically installed bothe Java Application Server 8 2005Q2 and Tomcat server 5.5.x? When to use which server?

Personally, of those two products I would use Tomcat for any and all purposes for which it stretches itself. The main difference between Tomcat and Sun's application server is that, well, Tomcat is a web container while the Sun product is a full application server.

If you go to the NetBeans update center, you will find there is a module that allows you to use JBoss 4 directly in NetBeans.

If you use that plugin, you can do all the J2EE stuff (servlets, EJB, web services) etc in JBoss.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
