J2EE is the entire platform for building distributed, component based systems using web technologies (JSP and servlets), Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB), Java Message Service (JMS) and so on.
The WSDP is simply an all-inclusive bundle of the tools that you need to start writing web services, or web based applications using JSP, Servlets, custom tags (JSTL) and some XML APIs.
To build web applications without EJB, the WSDP will suffice. If you need more than this, get a J2EE app server such as the reference implementation (from the Sun site), or one of the others (e.g. JBoss, WebLogic, etc).
HTH
