Does the .NET SOAP Toolkit correspond to Apache SOAP?

Does the .NET SOAP Toolkit correspond to Apache SOAP? Do you still need to install Apache Web server if you have installed Apache Tomcat? Does JBoss run alone or do you have to install Jetty or Tomcat?
The .NET SOAP environment or the MS SOAP Toolkit correspond to Apache SOAP. They are SOAP runtime servers. (The tools that generate SOAP client proxies and SOAP server interfaces are tied to the SOAP runtime servers.) The Apache SOAP runtime runs as a servlet, therefore it requires a servlet engine to run. You can deploy the Apache SOAP runtime in almost any servlet engine (Tomcat, Jetty, JRun, WebLogic, WebSphere, Resin, etc.) Some servlet engines include an HTTP engine (e.g., Jetty, WebLogic). Others don't (e.g., Tomcat, JBoss). If you're using Tomcat, you often use it with Apache Web Server. If you're using JBoss, you also need an HTTP server and a servlet engine (Jetty or Apache Web Server and Tomcat).
