EJB Container: is the environment in which EJBs are executed. Application Server: usually contains a Web Server, EJB Container, Web Container + a few other things... Usually a J2EE Application Server has a EJB container also. So we could write, deploy and execute EJBs. I suggest you pick up a good book on EJBs and it would give you more information...
