Why use an EJB Container like JBoss without a Web Container?

Is there an instance where I need not to use a Web Container?

Um, JBoss AS contains both an EJB container and a web container. That is one of the requirements of the Java EE 5 spec.

Hi Philip,

It is possible not to use the Web container of a given JBoss instance.

An example would be a clustered Business tier where your EJB objects live (no Servlets and JSF).

HTH.

Yes, you could have an server running that is connected to by JMS, GUI clients, or a remote Web tier etc.
