    If you want to use .NET InfoView, and if you do not want to use a Java application server to host your CMC, then you can use WACS to host the Central Management Console (CMC). Java goes for Tomcat.

    WACS is a application server bundled with SAP BO like tomcat but you cannot deploy separately any other application to it.

    It hosts different services like restful web service any others as well.

    WACS is a black box webapp server based on apache tomcat, which you cannot control.
    Tomcat is a wildly available, open source webapp server which is fully controllable by the user.

    WACS will also be used to connect to tools like Lumira.
