    Open source is when you have access to the actual code that is running the system. You can usually get the code from the internet. This allows you to integrate other code easier.
    Proprietary is just the opposite. You do not have access to the actual code. Usually there are APIs available to do the functions that you require.

    Im new to all this.. I believe the work of an app server is to communicate information and share the database from the client and system. There are proprietary tools and open source ones.
