Hello Gurus,

Please help me understand the JAVA platforms with respect to SCJA exam. What can we expect from the exam on this topic?

Do anyone have the table which shows the differences between SE, EE & ME so I can better understand the JAVA platforms and what are the basic services/APIs each one offer?

Thanks
Madhu Surya.

Hey Madhu,

For the SCJA Exam, Sun wants you to know what the major differences are, and when one edition is applicable compared to the other.

As a very short synopsis, J2ME is for micro-device applications, J2SE is for desktop applications that can be run on pretty much any desktop computer, and J2EE applications require an enterprise server, such as WebSphere, JBoss or WebLogic to host them.

You aren't required to know every little detail about the environment, but big picture stuff is important, such as profiles being associated with J2ME, Java Web Start technology being associated with J2SE, and EJBs and Servlets being associated with J2EE.

Best of luck!

Here is a nice brief article that gives an overview of the 3 technologies: http://www.informit.com/guides/content.asp?g=java&seqNum=212&rl=1

Once you conceptually understand the goal of these technologies, you will be able to see the differences easily.
