Apache Tomcat

Posted byShailesh Posted onAugust 30, 2011 Comments0

Apache Tomcat (or Jakarta Tomcat or simply Tomcat) is an open source servlet container developed by the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). Tomcat implements the Java Servlet and the JavaServer Pages (JSP) specifications from Oracle Corporation, and provides a “pure Java” HTTP web server environment for Java code to run.
Tomcat should not be confused with the Apache web server.

Tomcat is an application server from the Apache Software Foundation that executes Java servlets and renders Web pages that include Java Server Page coding. Described as a “reference implementation” of the Java Servlet and the Java Server Page specifications

Tomcat is a free, open-source implementation of Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies developed under the Jakarta project at the Apache Software Foundation. Tomcat is available for commercial use under the ASF license from the Apache web site in both binary and source versions.

Finally, Tomcat is one of several open source collaborations that are collectively known as Jakarta.
