  Asked By: Anpu    Date: May 02    Category: Java    Views: 760

I am a beginner with server technologies/programming etc. I have a
question: what is the difference between a webserver such as apache
httpd server, or tomcat etc., and the servers that you write in the
java programming language using the rmi classes such as ServerSocket
and Socket? someone please explain since i am confused with a very
fundamental thing.
