Tomcat Webserver versus Application Server

This is has to do with the Apache Tomcat webserver versus application server debate.

Can't I easily make a web application into a J2EE application just by adding J2EE jar files to the WEB-INF directory with Apache Tomcat?  Is it the fact that Tomcat doesn't have J2EE jar files in its lib directory that makes it not an application server?  Does Tomcat recognize .ear files or J2EE deployment files?
