    Hi
    web server is used to serve web based applications.(i.e servlets and jsps)
    application server is used to serve web based applications and enterprise based applications(i.e sevlets, jsps and ejbs...). because application server contains web server internally.

    hi vandahana

    A Web server handles the HTTP protocol. When the Web server receives an HTTP request,
    it responds with an HTTP response, such as sending back an HTML page. To process a request, a Web server may respond with a static HTML page or image, send a redirect, or delegate the dynamic response generation

    Application server

    An application server exposes business logic to client applications through various protocols, possibly including HTTP. While a Web server mainly deals with sending HTML for display in a Web browser, an application server provides access to business logic for use by client application programs. The application program can use this logic just as it would call a method on an object

    Thanks

    Apllication Server means we can store applications (DATA) in that Server & it manage the entire clints systems. web server means we can access internet ( what company given permissions to clints according to that we can use web applications ).

    Hai,
    portal server
    A "portal server" is just an application server running a portal sofware or a portal application (Microsoft Sharepoint Portal Server is an example).
    application server
    An application server is a system that provides the execution environment that is at the core of network computing or web-based architectures, providing a full set of services.
    Web server
    A computer that delivers Web pages to browsers and other files to applications via the HTTP protocol. It includes the hardware, operating system, Web server software, TCP/IP protocols and site content (Web pages and other files). If the Web server is used internally and not by the public, it may be called an "intranet server."

    "App server, Web server: What's the difference?" Java Q&A author Tony Sintes summarized the distinction as follows:

    "A Web server exclusively handles HTTP requests, whereas an application server serves business logic to application programs through any number of protocols, including HTTP [...] While a Web server mainly deals with sending HTML for display in a Web browser, an application server provides access to business logic for use by client application programs. The application program can use this logic just as it would call a method on an object (or a function in the procedural world).

    Such application server clients can include GUIs (graphical user interface) running on a PC, a Web server, or even other application servers. The information traveling back and forth between an application server and its client is not restricted to simple display markup. Instead, the information is program logic. Since the logic takes the form of data and method calls and not static HTML, the client can employ the exposed business logic however it wants.

    In most cases, the server exposes this business logic through a component API, such as the EJB component model found on J2EE application servers. Moreover, the application server manages its own resources. Such gate-keeping duties include security, transaction processing, resource pooling, and messaging. Like a Web server, an application server may also employ various scalability and fault-tolerance techniques."

    Hi ,

    Websphere actually process static content like you request to access a webpage like Google , it will go to webserver as teh result is excpected and the page will be displayed .now application server comes into picture when you put something in seach box , like something you wanna search ,no there you require application server as webserver cannot take the dynamic request , like it cannot search the database and do lot of processing and yes application server is a software.
    Hope it make sense
