Hi,

I don't think they both are clear and distinct defintions.

Usually an EJB container is only a part of a full J2EE enterprise application server which handles the EJB parts of an enterprise application. Some people may use "EJB server" synonymously for either an EJB container or and application server.

On the other hand there are real standalone EJB servers like OpenEJB which can be used for example to add EJB functionality to pure web containers like Tomcat or Jetty.

I hope this makes it somewhat clearer. But don't worry too much about it because confusingly there are often different names for the same things

Thanks for the tip of using OpenEJB with Tomcat. I will try this.

I thought the difference is that there is no such thing as EJB Server only EJB Container. Where EJB Container is normally a component of a Java Enterprise Application Server.
