Which container? EJB container? Web container? Cargo container?
Assuming that this "container" has something to do with J2EE, the container is part of the application server.

In context of EJB, there is a very thin line between container and application server.
Its left to the product vendors for further classifying the two.

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...
