Hi,


I want to know one thing clearly,

Does Weblogic8.1 acts as HTTP Webserver ? If so , Why do we use Apache2.0.47 as a seperate webserver ?

why cant we use Weblogic8.1 as both appserver and as well as webserver ?

If the answer is , Using Apache as a seperate webserver increases the robustness for the application, as how it increases?

Plz gimme clear idea abt those things.

Apache 2.0.x webserver does not contain heavy tools hooked into it. It can do a simple task serving statis html pages, and if enabled PHP or CGI modules. Since it's robust already and OSS, companies don't like to reinvent the wheel. They use it as a basic setup and extend its functionality by adding more modules to it so that it supports advanced enterprise features, support for JSP/Servlets, etc.

If the advanced features are not at all needed for a project OR the number of requests are considerably within limits for dynamic pages, using Apache simply is the best choice, and tomcat & Jboss Java engines can do very well.

Withouth knowing WLS just from the J2EE specs: an J2EE application has a build-in webserver. It needs that for handling the view part of J2EE applications (*.war - JSP,Servlet,HTML...).

Apache webserver usually has a better performance than an appserver.
