what webserver is used with websphere ?
IS websphere compatible to be used to ASP and JSP both ?
As Apache-Tomcat can not be used for ASP and IIS can be used only for ASP, are there any restrictions with websphere ?

Thanks

WebSphere Application Server (WAS) has an internal proprietary web server. However, when you buy WebSphere Application Server, you also get a license to IBM HTTP Server (IHS) which is basically just the Apache HTTP Server with a few enhancements. In a production environment, you would normally have IHS running on port 80 as the main interface with the user and then a plugin for IHS forwards any dynamic requests to the WAS server.

No, it isn't. WAS is a Java application server and therefore only serves JSPs.

As stated above, WAS cannot be used to serve ASP. One difference between WAS and Apache-Tomcat is that WAS can serve EJBs, where Apache-Tomacat cannot.

Thanks, this clarification helps a lot.

Do you have the details about WebLogic for the same questions ?
If yes, can you please provide those details.

Thanks again

Actually, WebSphere ships with plugins for a number of web servers, including straight Apachee, IIS, and Sun's Java System Web Server. As far as I know, *NO* J2EE application server would run ASP's -- ASP's are unique to Microsoft's technology and only run on IIS.
