Servers

Apache

Tomcat

lighttpd

Gained notoriety when it was announced that YouTube uses it for video distribution. It is highly optimized for multimedia and streaming purposes in general.


jetty

Jetty is an incredibly lightweight server environment, which is why the most common use of Jetty is as an embedded server (where it can be deployed with other projects as a jar file, which then builds the server dynamically at run-time of the other project in question). By default, Jetty uses port 9090 (as in: http://localhost:9090).


jBoss

WebSphere

WebLogic

Glassfish

IIS

Internet Information Services (commonly abbreviated as IIS) is Microsoft's web server environment for Windows-based Operating Systems. It is also the basis for their primary server software lines including (Windows Server 2000, Windows Server 2008, etc)[4].
