    Accepted Solution

    The Portal Server allows companies to build their own custom portal, which is a web site that puts the needs of employees, business partners and customers in one central location. Portal users can receive personalized Web pages providing access to information, people, and applications.

    WebSphere Portal Server provides the required framework and functionality to develop and deploy many types of portals. ( A portal is a single, secure point of access to diverse information, applications, and people, that can be customized and personalized. )

    Application Server is a product that provides the core software needed to deploy, integrate and manage e-business applications.
