I am not sure what is J2EE architecture. I am sure about J2EE as a spec and used its concrete helper implementations.

There is application architecture & system architecture in many real world scenarios. Application architecture works on nitty, gritty of achieving the finer expected details of a software application. System architecture encompasses a little of application scenario, but also concentrates more on the overall system(hardware+helper software) that goes along with the above system designed and implemented by the application architecture.

A framework to my knowledge, gives a foundational helper aspect to achieve more complex scenarios(it could be gui framework, web framework). Framework is the foundation on which you add more generic or specific details to achieve your requirements.

I hope I didn't confuse u more.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
