The Basics Page 2
In general, an application server prepares material for the Web server -- for example, gathering data from databases, applying business rules, processing security clearances, or storing the state of a users session. In some respects the term application server is misleading since the functionality isnt limited to applications. Its role is more as an aggregator and manager for data and processes used by anything running on a Web server. In fact, in the coming age of Web services, application servers will probably have an even more important role in managing service components. More on this shortly.
Where a developer typically picks a variety of tools to manage and program the Web server, most application server software is sold as a package with an integrated development environment. More often than not this is a Java environment.
