Channel One

Denis Gantsev

How to make an application server for an android app or ios app



Igor Lukyanenkov 

Do you mean, that Apache HTTP with mod_php - is an application sarvar?

Senad Zeco 

what a load of bullshit. put it simple : web server = web pages app server = data.

Sebastian B. 

Though it's true that webservers return "static content", all webservers have modules for creating dynamic web-apps. I would argue that webservers are stateless, while application servers are not. Dynamic - static content is not the issue here..

Prasanth Sasi 

how it communicate server

Prabhanjan T 

It is wrong what u have explained, a web application hosted on IIS also interacts with database and gives response. In the video u showed IIS as web server. How does it make diff. Plz explain.

Harshvardhan Vipat 

Can you please explain the web server and the application server, like how do they interact with each other.

Can you just paint a picture where the user, the web server and the Application server come in one scenario. I am finding it a bit difficult to visualize all the three in one frame.

Though you have done a great work explaining this.


Avinash Sisodia 

Great Simple explanation differentiate between Web and App server. can you suggest URL for training on Middleware Application Server from Infrastructure point of view (Not Middleware Admin) like Infra Solution Architect who needs to provide Server sizing,integrating with Authentication servers (Mircrosoft AD),deployment architecture ( Clustering, Topologies)

Jalal Sordo 

This is is wrong, it's not about Dynamic/static content, it's about services that each one of them provide.

David B 

Hey you rock man I like this


You are saying Web sever only handle static content. But we can host dynamic application in IIS and Tomcat. Take example of Login page. It is a dynamic page. IIS and Tomcat can handle.

Srini Jagadeesh 

Tomcat is not Application server, its a web server which helps to run https, Servlets/JSPs. Some call it application server, but its definitely not full fledged JavaEE application server

Muhammad Umer

Zetaro P

Sunny Islam 

Where can I get this PPT.

Dogma 360 Media 

Hey, great video, very insightful! I'm new to code and I have a quick question. Hypothetically: I develop a program in python3 that generally interacts with and stores user data in PostgreSQL. I use python's tKinter to design the gui and flask to connect it to the web / domain? Can you please elaborate on the complete workflow/process guide of this program-to-web hypothetical? Thank you, I appreciate any help.

vikash vik 

Hello there.Thank you for this video.Can you clear my doubt. WAMP contains Apache web server.Then how can it work with PHP coding(say in MVC) because PHP code can interact with a database and serve up dynamic content based on what input user has supplied. A little detailed reply will be appreciated. Thank You

camille brachet 

I don't understand one thing, I mean, static web site no longer really exist, they always have kind of a database to deploy there content or a administration interface where the administrater can manage the content of his website. Wamp is a App server so ?

Biswajit Roy 

It's not about static or dynamic content it's about what kind of server container we have inside the server. Apache tomcat is basically a web server it has web/servlet container but doesn't have all the java EE containers like EJB and again web server can handle dynamic content. And application server doesn't contain web server in it but it contains web containers (servlet container) along with other J2EE containers like EJB containers.

How can I get a hold of you for more detailed questions?

Ladedadeda SchlobOnMeKnob 

So what brand of server should i use to return json and such? Like how does facebook display my profile info through the iOS facebook app? 


John Calilung 

Would it be correct to say that

a web application that only has static content uses a web server? Also if it does have dynamic content, then it uses an application server?
