Glassfish vs tomcat difference?

Hi all,

we have an internal company application in Java which we want to run in Tomcat. WAR Deployment via tomcat manager completed successfully, the application shows running status, there is no error in catalina.log, but after clicking at the URL it displays "HTTP Status 404".

The weird thing is that when I tried this application in Glassfish it works.

Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be? AFAIK war should be server independent

We are running many other tomcat application on the same server.

Thanks for helping.

Glassfish, JBoss, Websphere, etc. are heavy weight application servers that support the EJB standard and many more advanced features out of the box, GlassFish is a collection of Java EE containers, one of which is a Web container, Tomcat is just a Web container.Compounding the advantages of GlassFish Server and GlassFish Web Container over Tomcat, the GlassFish Community has provided support for well-known features of Tomcat within GlassFish. The table below summarizes the Tomcat features that are provided by GlassFish and the additional GlassFish capabilities not currently provided by Tomcat. Here is a table with ClassFish vs tomcat features.
