Techopedia explains Apache Tomcat

Apache Tomcat allows the implementation of Java Servlets and JavaServer Pages (JSP) to promote an effective Java server environment. Users can also access resources for configuration and use extensible markup language (XML) to configure projects. Successive versions of Apache Tomcat have solved different problems by applying software patches and other solutions. Some experts characterize Apache Tomcat as a product offering a runtime shell for Java Servlets. Users can also set up Java virtual machines (JVM) to configure virtual hosting.
