Living & Breathing in Web 2.0 Era

What’s under GlassFish application server?

Hobi: Is Glassfish sitting on any web server like Apache or does it have its own container?

Alexis: GlassFish comes with it’s integrated HTTP server implemented using Grizzly. It performs extremely well (better than Apache in some cases). So, if you have a simple network topology with no need for a DMZ or load-balancing in a web-server tier, you can do without Apache. Settings for the integrated HTTP server in GlassFish are available in the admin console: Configuration > HTTP Service. The documentation is here: http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/819-3671/ablsw?a=view
Having said this, you can use Apache as a front end to GlassFish if you want to leverage existing Apache knowledge.
