Yes. No. Maybe. The term does not have a solid definition.

My answer would be yes, as it is more than a web server. Others will say no because it doesn't support EJB. Your milage may vary.

I have seen in Apache Site which quotes " Tomcat is a Fully Compatible J2ee Server, A Fully Compatible J2ee Server should be able to Support EJB as well !!

Any way i would like to call it a Application Server but any Solid Coments to DisProve the Statement is welcomed.

Thanks

Personally, I consider Tomcat a web container. We use it as an appserver in the office since we don't use EJBs (and it does fairly well with just servlets and JSPs), but I would put myself into the camp that would feel that an application server would also handle EJBs.
