What is Apache, Tomcat and Httpd?

Posted 17 September 2009 - 06:59 AM

I read through the

Apache is a public-domain open source Web server

Apache Tomcat is an open source software implementation of the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies. The Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages specifications are developed under the Java Community Process.

The Apache HTTP Server Project is an effort to develop and maintain an open-source HTTP server for modern operating systems including UNIX and Windows NT. The goal of this project is to provide a secure, efficient and extensible server that provides HTTP services in sync with the current HTTP standards.

Is it mean :
1. HTTPD more secure than Tomcat
2. Tomcat can run java program by HTTPD cannot

Can anyone explain What is TOMCAT and HTTPD generally?

Can both of them use together?

I believe both of them is web server... :)

HTTPd is probably one of the first well deployed Web server.
Actually I think that Apache derives a lot from it (why re-inventing the wheel ?).

Tomcat is the part of Apache that handles servlets.

HTTPd must be able to handle Java applet but I wonder if HTTPd is still a lot in use as Apache is free and is newer technology.
