The Standalone edition directly controls all Web Applications and in general is the simplest to configure and run.
To install and configure the Standalone Edition, all you need is access to a working database server and the permissions required to install a database. The Standalone Edition includes a built-in Tomcat web application server and thus requires no external application server. On the other hand, the Standalone Edition does not support advanced capabilities such as clustering, JMS, or workload management.
Since the Standalone Edition directly controls the embedded Tomcat Web server, from Admin Center you can individually enable and disable each Web application or service. Also, the Standalone Edition of Admin Center knows the URL for each web application, so a set of links to each available application is presented in the main Admin Center window. If a given application is disabled, its link will be disabled as well.
