Tomcat is not a webserver, it is an applet container and is required by JBOSS. JBOSS is a web server, so you do not
need a different webserver.  I don't think you need anything else beyond JBOSS, because it is all embedded. Except the JVM of course.

No you donot need a seperate one. you can use jboss itself.

>> blu : JBOSS is a web server

JBoss is an apllication server..

jbossweb is an enterprise ready web server designed for medium and large applications, based on Tomcat

I meant to say that it is an application that is embedded in an included webserver. No added webserver required.

This is great. So the web server that is embedded, its JBOSS own version.

I dont know why in the meeting today the brand wanted tomcat, as you said its just an applet container

So if I need to install JBOSS app server, do I need to install JBOSS web server separately or both comes in the same package.

That's what I said from the first. JBOSS is a dessert topping AND a floor wax!

Tomcat is just a web-container. JBOSS uses tomcat to provide web-container
functionalities.

Yes It does.

Tomcat. Its very lightweight

Ajay Thank you so much for further comments on this question. This makes it more clear. I was confused about Tomcat, I have a web server iplanet61 on 2 clusters, but i was looking for app server that has embedded web server, so if it comes with tomcat, that is a much better solution. I can also use JBOSS (send/receive response/request) to the web cluster running iplanet, right?
Thanks again for further clarification, appreciate it very much:)
