An EJB server is a high-level process or application that provides a run-time environment to support the execution of server applications that use enterprise beans. An EJB server provides a JNDI-accessible naming service, manages and coordinates the allocation of resources to client applications, provides access to system resources, and provides a transaction service. An EJB server could be provided by, for example, a database or application server.

What is EJB architecture(components)? Enterprise beans-An enterprise bean is a non-visual component of a distributed, transaction-oriented enterprise application. Enterprise beans are typically deployed in EJB containers and run on EJB servers.

There are three types of enterprise beans: session beans, entity beans, and message-driven beans.

Session beans: Session beans are non-persistent enterprise beans. They can be stateful or stateless. A stateful session bean acts on behalf of a single client and maintains client-specific session information (called conversational state) across multiple method calls and transactions. It exists for the duration of a single client/server session. A stateless session bean, by comparison, does not maintain any conversational state. Stateless session beans are pooled by their container to handle multiple requests from multiple clients.

Entity beans: Entity beans are enterprise beans that contain persistent data and that can be saved in various persistent data stores. Each entity bean carries its own identity. Entity beans that manage their own persistence are called bean-managed persistence (BMP) entity beans. Entity beans that delegate their persistence to their EJB container are called container-managed persistence (CMP) entity beans.

Message-driven beans: Message-driven beans are enterprise beans that receive and process JMS messages. Unlike session or entity beans, message-driven beans have no interfaces. They can be accessed only through messaging and they do not maintain any conversational state. Message-driven beans allow asynchronous communication between the queue and the listener, and provide separation between message processing and business logic.
