An application server is a type of platform middleware and is primarily used for tablets, mobile devices, and cloud applications. It is a system software which lies in between the operating system, external resources such as database management system (DBMS), communications and Internet services, and user application. Application server acts as a host for the user’s business logic while facilitating access to and performance of the business application. The application server performs the basic business requirements of the application despite the variable and traffic of client requests, hardware and software failures, the distributed nature of the larger-scale applications, and potential heterogeneity of data and processing resources. An application server also supports multiple application design patterns, in accordance with the nature of the business application and the practices in the particular industry for which the application has been designed. It supports multiple programming languages and deployment platforms.

The growing use of computer and mobile-based Internet applications and rapid developments in wireless networks and mobile device systems are the major factors driving the growth of the global application server market.
