The networking giant is currently reworking its strategy on Java and its many variants such as J2EE (Enterprise Edition), J2SE (Standard Edition) and J2ME (Micro Edition). Fowler says Sun is looking forward to the February release of its J2EE version 1.4, which is expected to incorporate Java API for XML-Based RPC (JAX-RPC), SOAP with Attachments API for Java (SAAJ), Web Services for J2EE, J2EE Management Model, J2EE Deployment API, Java Management Extensions (JMX), J2EE Authorization Contract for Containers and Java API for XML Registries (JAXR).
Actually I'm not sure if the alternatives are EJB vs JDO (there was some press about this at the start of last year) or JDBC vs JDO (there seems to be some new press regarding this lately)

JAX-RPC, SAAJ and JAXR are all APIs for developing Web Services, so these are useful for anyone who wants to use Web Services in their J2EE applications. (I suspect this is a large percentage of J2EE users.)

Thanks Rich and Ashik,
This helps a lot in gaining a perspective on these technologies.
Is there a resource library for this forum?
quoted by me:
Is it blocked because of the protocol RMI-IIOP or the default port that it runs on ?
Seems to be rather limiting!
