I just wanted to know which of these servers is the better to use.

Also are they compatible with MySQL database, cant seem to find anything that says this.

Is there a particular OS I should be considering for either of them??

What do I need to take into consideration when choosing between these servers??

I want to develop a fully functioning application that is secure and relaible, able to handle 100 or so concurrent users.

Thanks in advance for the advice,

First thing to know is that JBoss have Apache Tomcat "built" in. There is the Tomcat service.

Apache basically is used to serve static web pages. When you wnat dynamic pages through JSP and Servlets then you want Tomcat.
