Tomcat is a Servlet container not an application server. You will need an applciation server to provide yuo EJB container. Might I suggest Glassfish or JBoss?

Indeed, without an EJB container, you can't deploy and test EJBs.

EJB3.0 does use something called JPA, or the Java Persistence API. You can also use JPA on normal JavaBeans and deploy them to a non-EJB container using something like Hibernate. They're not actually EJB components without the EJB container, but they're pretty darn similar! It's an option, but it might be more confusing than helpful.

For real EJB development, Glassfish or JBoss are both affordable resources.
