>> advantages

Transaction management
Persistence/ Database relational mapping
Session/ state management (in case of stateful)
Creation/ passivation/ maintenance etc

All done by the container.

>> disadvantages

Heavy to use
Uses RMI so serialization/ de-serialization will happen (unless you use local interfaces)

Because the containers will typically take more space for install, deal with databases for persisting the EJBs, RMI for serialization/ de-serialization when EJBs are called remotely, etc
