Deciding between Tomcat and Glassfish is really a matter of application
requirements: GlassFish is a full J2EE server, while Tomcat is limited
to a Java servlet container/web server. GlassFish actually uses Tomcat
internally as its servlet container and web server, and adds features to it.

If you only need a servlet container and web server, Tomcat can meet
your needs. If you need additional services provided by a J2EE server
(EJB, JMX, etc.) then you'll want GlassFish.

Both are equally compatible.

is this ?

Maven is a build tool. Whether Tomcat has been mavenized shouldn't be
relevant if you are developing web applications for deployment onto Tomcat.
