A web server only gives you ability to get html file by http request. Application server, also known as Componet Transaction Monitors, give you the ability to contain Components, manage Transaction, pooling Resources (as db connections for example), and provide different Services such as:

  • EJB
  • HTTP
  • JSP/Servlet
  • JMS
  • JNDI/LDAP
  • Security
  • Accessibility (with JNDI/ORB/RMI)
  • Others...
