Tomcat is a servlet container server, JBoss is a Java (Enterprise) Bean server.
If you need Java-support and Java-Beans, then you need JBoss. If not, then Tomcat should be enough for you.

Setting up JBoss is very simple. JBoss uses an internal Tomcat server for servlets, so you should be fine either way. You need to decide if you need JBoss also.

They are all J2EE servers. You need to read their documnets in order to understand the difference. Weblogic and websphere are commericial servers whereas Jboss is a a open source server.

I agree. Here's the link:
