11.3. The EJB Container

An EJB container is the component that manages a particular class of EJB. In JBoss there is one instance of the org.jboss.ejb.Container created for each unique configuration of an EJB that is deployed. The actual object that is instantiated is a subclass of Container and the creation of the container instance is managed by the EJBDeployer MBean.
