Difference between the specs to download on these two pages?

Sun's site has two download links to the EJB3 spec and JPA spec:

http://jcp.org/aboutJava/communityprocess/final/jsr220/index.html

However, the document specs on each page seem to be the same. Are the specs on each page the same, or are there slight differences between them?

If there are differences, which set of docs is better to use for studying from?

The differences seem to be either the:

"Specification for evaluation or to build an application that uses the Specification"

or

"Specification to build an implementation of the Specification"

Yet again, both appear at first glance to refer to the same documents?

The bottom one is for container providers. Use the one at the top (or evaluation or to build an application).
