Know about Tomcat

Apache Tomcat,formerly under the Apache Jakarta Project; Tomcat is now a top level project is a web container developed at the Apache Software Foundation. Tomcat implements the servlet and the JavaServer Pages (JSP) specifications from Sun Microsystems, providing an environment for Java code to run in cooperation with a web server. It adds tools for configuration and management but can also be configured by editing configuration files that are normally XML-formatted. Because Tomcat includes its own HTTP server internally, it is also considered a standalone web server. Tomcat is a web server that supports servlets and JSPs. Tomcat comes with the Jasper compiler that compiles JSPs into servlets. The Tomcat servlet engine is often used in combination with an Apache webserver or other webservers. Tomcat can also function as an independent web server. Earlier in its development, the perception existed that standalone Tomcat was only suitable for development environments and other environments with minimal requirements for speed and transaction handling. However, that perception no longer exists, Tomcat is increasingly used as a standalone web server in high-traffic, high-availability environments.
