Quite a lot! Thanks for your time and patience. Sorry to say so, but I
must admit that when you mentioned about the spec and servicelocator I
searched the doc and found 22.3.3 Embeddable Container Bootstrapping:

The Container Provider supplies the provider configuration file by
creating a text file named javax.ejb.spi.EJBContainerProvider and
placing it in the META-INF/servicesdirectory of one of its JAR files.
The contents of the file should be the name of the embeddable
container provider implementation class of the
javax.ejb.spi.EJBContainerProvider interface.

I meant to have read it, but...well...didn't and hence asked these
questions. What a shame! Thanks again. It's clear now and am going to
pursue more tests for my self-learning.
