Can anyone explain the differences between EJB and Forte.

EJB is an enterprise java bean, a component that you plug into an EJB container.
Forte is a free development environment from Sun, where you write code and compile it.
You write EJB's with tools like Forte.
They are as different as an apple and a pencil.
Depends on which Forte you mean -
Forte for Java is the IDE you mention.
Forte C++ is what was formerly known as Sun Workshop C++.
Forte 4GL is the old (original) Forte application environment.
If the original poster wanted to contrast Forte 4GL and J2EE/EJB, then I would suggest scanning Sun's docs on both. Take a look at Sun's Forte 4GL page at http://www.sun.com/forte/4gl/index.html for more info.
Forte is a seperate IDE having its own in-built Application Server which doesn't implement EJB Specifications. So we cannot access EJB components using Forte.
