Client container?

What is the "client container" I am reading about? Is this an abstract concept that does not correspond to a single software construct or is it something more?
We are using WL 6.x and our system includes a java application component distributed vua Java Webstart. If I had to point to the "client container" I'd say it's the JVM running on the client machine with access to the appropriate weblogic jars (to enable JNDI, JMS, JDBC, et al).
Am I off base?

Yes and No.
Yes - this question should be directed to the
J2EE - EJB discussion group.
No - I would think a client container would
imply two EJB containers. But then, we don't
know what you're reading.

A client container is usually a library that is distrubuted along with the client. It is specific to the J2EE EJB container, and is often provided by the same vendor. The container manages details of RMI-IIOP communication. It also handles security, transaction, and deployment issues.
