Web Server
Application Server
Web Server handles only http protocol.
Application server handles all protocols (ftp/tcp/ip) including http protocol.
Web Server mainly deals with request, response i.e. fetch static content from some location.

E.g. Servlet,JSP Applications ,EJB
Websphere, Tomcat Application server, BEA Web logic.
