Web Server vs Application Server
Apa bedanya web server dengan application server pada arsitektur untuk aplikasi berbasis web ? Uraian paling mudah dimengerti saya ambil dari sini:
An application server exposes business logic to client applications through various protocols, possibly including HTTP. While a Web server mainly deals with sending HTML for display in a Web browser, an application server provides access to business logic for use by client application programs. The application program can use this logic just as it would call a method on an object (or a function in the procedural world).
