Application Servers

As explained earlier, Web servers don't do that much—they serve content that is read from disk. Application servers are software applications that extend Web servers, allowing them to do things they couldn't do on their own. These include:

  • Accessing databases

  • Sending and receiving email

  • Manipulating XML data

  • Personalizing content

  • Building ecommerce applications

  • Powering rich Internet applications

  • Much more
