JBoss vs Apache Tomcat: What are the differences?

Developers describe JBoss as "An open-source Java EE-based application server". An application platform for hosting your apps that provides an innovative modular, cloud-ready architecture, powerful management and automation, and world class developer productivity. On the other hand, Apache Tomcat is detailed as "An open source software implementation of the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies". Apache Tomcat powers numerous large-scale, mission-critical web applications across a diverse range of industries and organizations.

JBoss and Apache Tomcat can be primarily classified as "Web Servers" tools.

Apache Tomcat is an open source tool with 3.51K GitHub stars and 2.4K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Apache Tomcat's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Apache Tomcat has a broader approval, being mentioned in 566 company stacks & 432 developers stacks; compared to JBoss, which is listed in 14 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

Decisions about JBoss and Apache Tomcat

I was in a situation where I have to configure 40 RHEL servers 20 each for Apache HTTP Server and Tomcat server. My task was to 1. configure LVM with required logical volumes, format and mount for HTTP and Tomcat servers accordingly. 2. Install apache and tomcat. 3. Generate and apply selfsigned certs to http server. 4. Modify default ports on Tomcat to different ports. 5. Create users on RHEL for application support team. 6. other administrative tasks like, start, stop and restart HTTP and Tomcat services.

I have utilized the power of ansible for all these tasks, which made it easy and manageable.
