Rashmi,
1) IDEs don't run EJBs. A server runs EJB. An IDE is used to develop and create EJBs.
2) Many servers are good for EJBs. An open source (and therefore free) one is JBoss.
3) Session beans, entity beans in EJB 2 or JPA in EJB 3, message driven beans

Note that you'll need to decide whether to learn EJB 2 or 3. They are quite different. I recommend learning EJB 3 since it is newer and more people will be using it going forward.

Thanks for your response.

For servlets and jsp i am using eclipse IDE.you are telling IDE's don't run EJB.then where to write the code for Home interface,remote interface,bean and client application(servlets,jsp or an applet).

please give the procedure to run a simple EJB application.that means where to install the server and what are the required components to run EJB.where to store all these files(remote,home interface,bean class,client application).and deployment descriptor.

and you told EJB 3 is better.what is mean by JPA?which is best site to learn EJB 3.?

Thanks in advance

You still write the code in Eclipse IDE. Then you deploy it to a server like JBoss to run. I recommend using a plugin to give Eclipse some more EJB support. Search the IDEs forum for some examples.

Have you looked at a tutorial online or a book yet? I recommend a book since you are a beginner and need a step by step guide. If you don't want to spend any money, Sun has a copy of their book/tutorial online

Hi,

Try the latest Netbeans Milestone release. It has all the features needed to develop EJB. You can also use the GlassFish app server which is included in the release.
