An application server is installed as a software engine in a computer network. One of its functions is to host software applications. Neither the file server nor the print server has such a function. Another function of the application server is to transmit applications to linked computers. It further manages most of the applications for business logic as well as the data access applications of your computer. Server software can carry more that one software package which makes it readily accessible on networks such as a Web Server.
