Apache Tomcat is a popular open-source web and application server framework and servlet container that runs a Java Virtual Machine HTTP environment for a wide range of Java code. Tomcat executes Java servlets to deliver web pages that use Java Server Page coding and processes each HTTP request from a web browser in a separate thread. Although Tomcat comes with tools to configure and manager code, it also lets developers directly edit XML configuration files. Developers can use Tomcat as on its own using the internal web server or in conjunction with other web servers, including Apache, Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS), or Netscape, among others. For developers and operations teams building and managing applications with the Tomcat application server, the AppDynamics platform provides a comprehensive solution for monitoring and managing the performance of your Java applications.
