Day 7. Preparing a Server for Dreamweave... > The Dreamweaver MX Application Serve...

The Dreamweaver MX Application Server

Before you can set up a dynamic site, you'll need to decide which language will be used to generate the embedded source code. This will also control what server OS you can use to deploy your applications. It's a decision that you don't want to make lightly.

What Is an Application Server?

The scripting platforms are typically called “application servers.” Throughout the text, you may see references to the scripting languages, server platforms, and application servers. For our purposes, you can assume they all refer to the same thing.

They are not, however, to be confused with a Web server. The application server processes and controls the dynamic Web site, whereas the Web server sends the information back to the client browser. Application servers often support multiple Web servers running on multiple operating systems.
