1) In Sun Microsystems' JavaBeans component architecture and in Microsoft's Component Object Model (COM), a container is an application program or subsystem in which the program building block known as a component is run. For example, a component - such as a button or other graphical user interface or a small calculator or database requestor - can be developed using JavaBeans that can run in Netscape containers such as browsers and in Microsoft containers such as Internet Explorer, Visual Basic, and Word.
