    1. What is web server? what is the use of web server?

    Eg: Apache Tomcat

    Is able to handle jsp, servlet. doesn't have ability to handle EJB.

    2. What is application server? what is the use of application server?
    Eg: Weblogic & WebSphere

    Can handle EJB also, no need the code effort for transaction management. In-build its having this feature.

    3. Difference between application server & web server?
