Posted by Pradeepa on September 10, 2001 at 2:51 AM

Webservers are servers which only accept your requests related to Web over HTTP. Whereas Application Servers are bundle of servers which not only transmit your request but also provide other services like messaging, transaction management, mail service etc.,

Example of Webserver - JavaWebServer, jakarta-tomcat
Example of Application Server - IBM Websphere, BEA WebLogic
