What is an Application Server?


To use computers, users need certain software to be present on those computers. These software are known as applications. Common examples of Applications are Microsoft Word, Lotus 1-2-3, CodeWarrior, etc.

A server is a huge, powerful computer into which users can login and access the resources provided by the server.

Thus, an application server is a computer which allows users to login and work with certain applications on the server itself, without having to install those applications on the user's home machine.
