    Web Server is a program that uses HTTP to serve the files that form Web Pages to users, in response to their requests which are forwarded by their HTTP client's.Dedicated Computers and appliances may be referred to Web Servers as well. Web Servers are responsible for static content. It does not support multithreading. It involves only to Web or Servlet Container and cannot be used for EJB. It provides environment to run for Web application.

    Application server is a server program in a computer in a distributed network that provides the bussiness logic for an application Program.Application Server are suitable for Dynamic content.It does support multithreading.It provides environment to run for Enterprise Application.

    Both terms are very generic, one containing the other one and vice versa in some cases.

    Web server: serves content to the web using http protocol.

    Application server: hosts and exposes business logic and processes.

    I think that the main point is that the web server exposes everything through the http protocol, while the application server is not restricted to it.

    That said, in many scenarios you will find that the web server is being used to create the front-end of the application server, that is, it exposes a set of web pages that allow the user to interact with the business rules found into the application server.

    Difference between webserver and application server:-

    ->Web servers are desirable for static content whereas application servers are appropriate for the dynamic content.
    ->Web servers support scripting languages like Perl, PHP, ASP, JSP, etc. As against, application server assists scripting languages as well as application level
    services such as connection pooling, transaction support, object pooling, messaging services etc.
    ->Application server contains web and EJB containers and a web server as an incorporated part of them. In contrast, a web server only contains web or servlet
    container and can employ EJB.
    ->Web server does not support multithreading whereas application server assists multithreading and distributed transaction.
    ->Web server uses HTML and HTTP protocol. On the other hand, the application server could use graphical user interface and protocols like RPC/RMI including
    HTTP.
    ->Load Limit or capacity is higher in case of the application server as compared to the web server.
    ->The web server provides an environment to run a web application and features like caching and scalability. On the contrary, the application server provides an
    environment to run web with enterprise applications.

    (1) Web server is meant to serve static pages Ex: HTML and CSS while Application Server is responsible for generating dynamic content by executing server side code Ex: JSP, Servlet
    (2) Web server is supposed to provide http protocol level service while Application server provides support to web service and expose business level service.
    (3) Web server consumes or utilizes less resources while Application server utilize more resources.
    (4) Web servers arrange the run environment for web applications while Application servers arrange the run environment for enterprises applications.
