"Container" is a very general term. In this context it just means some software which looks after (manages) other software components.
An EJB container manages Enterprise Java Beans
A servlet/JSP container manages servlets and JSPs
and so on.
There are as many types of container as there are types of component.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
