Tomcat is compliant for Servlet and JSP specs (which are part of J2EE). 4.x is Servlet 2.3/JSP 1.2 (part of J2EE 1.3) and 5.x is Servlet 2.4/JSP 2.0 (part of J2EE 1.4) compliant. If you want EJBs, you will need to use an EJB container (EJBs are another part of the J2EE spec). JBoss, Sun, etc have freely available full J2EE containers.

You can use tomcat for Jsp and servlets,but for EJBs u need a J2ee application server.
Weblogic,Websphere and Jboss are good examples.
It is better to use Jboss which is open source and free.
try it out if u want to learn EJB.
url is www.jboss.org

I think that's an unusually broad statement, and not true for all circumstances. Each of the products have their own strengths and weaknesses. It's often easiest to learn EJB with something free like JBOSS or the Sun RI, but determining what EJB container to use for your production application isn't that simple.
