Hi guys,

Could you please give me a brief explanation about the differences between J2SE and J2EE ?

I know it's a very basic question but I would really know about your expert opinions.

I also would like to ask you about the latest version for J2EE. I know that J2SE is in the current 5.0 realease and going to 6, but every time a new J2SE version is released, is also released such version in J2EE ?

As last question, I recently saw at http://java.sun.com/ that there's a new J2EE 5 release available but when I go to download page I can see only the current J2SE5 release and the J2EE 1.4 release. Is there such J2EE 5 available ?

I really appreciate your replies.

Thanks in Advance.

J2EE 5 is still in the "preview" stage, as is prominently mentioned on that page. At the most basic level, J2EE is a set of (mostly server-side) APIs on top of J2SE, like EJB, servlet/JSP, JavaMail, JMS, JMX and others. The J2EE SDK also contains a server that implements these APIs.

When I went to J2EE download page I could see only the Sun Java System Application Server, JDK 5.0 and Platform API Docs.

Where is the java API that supports you to create J2EE applications such as javax package and so on. As far as I know JDK 5.0 contains only the core APIs for J2SE platform. What about J2EE APIs ?

Guys,

I know it's a very basic question, please don't be upset with me.

Download the Sun application server and you will get all J2EE APIs.
