bush beans

I am planning to grow bush beans (Contender and yellow wax) in containers this year. 1. Should I direct sow or start them indoors? 2. Each variety will go into a 7 gallon container. How many plants can I squeeze into each? Any other tips or tricks will be much appreciated. I am in Zone 7b.
