What are the reasons for not using EJB much?
Is it only because of expensive containers?

I'm not sure there is a universally applicable answer to this. Technology choices are really in the end an individual decision. I have used Java EE and EJB for many years now and have absolutely no regrets. I think it is an awesome technology. I've commented on Java EE/EJB adoption on other recent threads, please check it out.

If your application does not need to worry about business logic, transaction management, threading management, security, and container managed components, then you may have a case for not using EJB but even in that case you can still use an EJB and not use most of those features
