Enterprise JavaBeans is first and foremost a component technology while web services are a standard way to expose services. The difference might be subtle but it is there. EJBs can be used to compose applications in a more tightly coupled way, while web services are a larger-grained concept aimed at interoperability.
Maybe someone else on this forum has a better explanation of the differences?
