"lightweight" container means a lot.
1. Could be because it doesn't take so much time to start.
2. could be because the framework classes are less.
3. Lesser, Non-invasive code and lesser dependancy.
4. Unlike EJB's there is no vendor lock in in Springs. you can do away with any light weight cross-cutting concern managers like transactions, logging etc., They don't include code for any of them.

The book "Pro Spring" has a pretty good definition on p 3:

"Spring is described as a lightweight framework...the lightweight part of the description doesn't really refer to the number of classes or the size of the distribution, but rather, it defines the Spring philosophy as a whole -- that is, minimal impact(emphasized). Spring is lightweight in the sense that you have to make few, if any, changes to your application code to gain the benefits of the Spring core, and should you choose to discontinue using Spring at any point, you will find doing so quite simple."
