Course Description

Apache Tomcat, often referred to as the Tomcat Server, is an open source Java servlet container developed by Apache Software Foundation (ASF). Tomcat implements several Java EE specifications, including JSP (Java Server Pages), Java EL, Java Servlet and WebSocket, and provides a “pure Java” HTTP web server environment in which Java code can be executed.


Tomcat began as a servlet reference implementation by James Duncan Davidson, software architect at Sun Microsystems. He later helped to make the project open source and played a key role in donating Sun Microsystems to the Apache Software Foundation. The Apache Ant software building automation tool was developed following the creation of Tomcat as an open source project.


Apache Tomcat is a web container that allows to run servlet-based Web applications and Java Server (JSP) pages. Most modern Java Web frameworks are based on servlets, for example. JavaServer Faces, Struts, Spring. Apache Tomcat also provides an HTTP connector on port 8080 by default, which means that Tomcat can also be used as an HTTP server. However, Tomcat’s performance is not as good as that of a designated Web server, such as the Apache HTTP Server.
