just a query..

Posted by chetan on September 25, 2001 at 11:59 AM

hello !

i want to ask some questions related to web server and application server. as u r saying that web server accepts requests related to web over http and in case of application server u r talking about transaction management , now does this means that applicatin server has a support of database or it has embedded database which is not in web server.

and why we call java web server as web server and weblogic as appplication server.

hope u will help me in finding the answers of these queries .


> 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
