Tomcat isn't a full J2EE server, it�s only a WEB container, without including an EJB Container, so you can't use any services included inside this container ,like run EJB�s,... To do this, you can use JBoss or another ejb container

Thank you Tomas. I understand that you cannot run EJBs in Tomcat. Can't you get around EJBs with normal Java Beans using Tomcat. For example, connecting to the database, you can have a controller from the login screen, and when it is initiated, you can use an instance of the controller that has the initiated connection pool etc.?
