classes that extend the capabilities of servers that host
applications access. Nevertheless, Tomcat avoids some of the
overhead associated with full-featured application servers.

available, we have compiled a list of 7 impressive open source
application servers. Hopefully, there will be something of interest
here for any organisation that wants a layered architecture."
