Ok, apologies accepted.  And our own apologies for having a bit of fun.

Now, what do you really want to know, that is not already in the online Tomcat 
documentation ? (available here :

Tomcat is a Java application, which runs under a Java virtual machine (JVM).
It is a Servlet Container, which means that it provides an environment to run Java 
servlets (and JSP pages), as described in the Java Servlet Specification, which you can 
download here :
It is suggested that you browse this document first, to provide you with an overview of 
what Tomcat is supposed to do.
Tomcat is also a generic webserver (or HTTP server), capable of serving static html pages

and other resources (like images etc..).

Then, if your next question would be a bit more focused, it would help you get answers.
