JBoss actually embeds Tomat for it's HTTP engine. JBoss contains a
significantly greater amount of functionality when compared to Tomat.
Tomat is for HTTP whereas JBoss implements the entire J2EE stack (EJB,
JMS, etc.) JBoss is pretty much the defacto standard for free J2EE
stacks so if you need that type of functionality then you probably can't
go wrong with it.

I know more or less that, so my question is about
experience about several application  servers, like
J2EE or JBoss, about their security, use,
implementations, ...

J2EE is not an application  server, it is a set of specifications. I can
only imagine that you are talking about the reference implementation,
which in all truth is just that: a reference implementation. It
probably isn't something you'd use in production.

The whole point of J2EE as a specification is to make it possible to
move from server  to server without needing to worry too much about
security, transaction management, etc. since it is somewhat standardized.
