webserver=you can deploy jsp/servlet project //you can not deploy ejb related project[example:Apache]
ApplicationServer=webserver=you can deploy jsp/servlet+ejb project[example:jboss]
I think at the moment that this thread fits quite well here. I think it is a general question about servers. But it might change character and need changing later . . .

This has been rehashed over and over and over in the Tomcat forum. It used to be that pure web servers such as Apache served static resources faster than app servers (and let's not get into the whole "what's an app server" debate). So you used to see a lot of setups where Apache would be set up as the front server to serve up the static resources, and it would delegate, via a connector, dynamic resource serving to Tomcat (or other).
This is no longer the case. Tomcat serves static resources as fast as any static web server, so the dual-level server setup isn't something you see all that often anymore (inertia aside).
