Difference between an application server and a web server, JAVA Programming

An application server creates data for a Web server - as, collecting data from databases, processing security checks, applying relevant business programs, and/or storing the state of a user's session. The term application server can be misleading since the programming isn't limited to applications. Its role is more as manager and retriever of data and processes used by anything executing on a Web server. In the coming age of Web services, application servers will probably have an even more wiled role in managing service oriented elements. One of the reasons for using an application server is to improve service by off-loading tasks from a Web server. When heavy traffic has more transactions, more users, more data, and more security checks then more likely a Web server goes a bottleneck.
