Java container

This definition is part of our Essential Guide: The world of microservices and container technologies

 In Sun Microsystems' JavaBeans component architecture, a container, also known as a collection, is an application program or subsystem in which the program building block known as a component is run.

According to the Oracle website, containers provide an interface between a component and the low-level platform-specific functionality that supports the component. Before a web component, enterprise bean, or application client component can be executed, it must be assembled into a J2EE module and deployed into its container.

 Container types include:

Applet container - manages applets that run on the client.

Application client container - manages the execution of application components that run on the client.

Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) container - manages the execution of enterprise beans for J2EE applications.

Web container - manages the execution of servlet components for J2EE applications.
