Nowadays, a huge number of application developers and enterprise companies want to use lightweight application servers for deploying and running their web applications. They do not want to use heavyweight Java EE Servers that are fully compliant with Java EE Specifications. They want to manage light weight, cloud environment friendly servers. Nonetheless, they also need more technology stack for implementing their web based applications, such as "JPA, JSF, JTA , EJB etc."
Moreover, most of them deploy their critical enterprise web applications into the Apache Tomcat in their production systems.
