hi all, I wanted to know about new realeases in J2EE technology and framewroks related to it to keep pace with the growing market trends and web technology. Also if possible I'd like to how J2EE can compete with ASP .NET 2.0 and further realeases. I met one of my collegues in office who is into the other technology than java, and found out lot of great stuff that technology is offering in its new releases. Being a java lover I'd like to how J2EE technology is coming to match the features of other rival technology.If anyone can tell me any whitepapers regarding this... that will also help.. and also from you all.
theserverside is a useful place to hear about J2EE related software. The JCP website is also a good place to find the state of the various JSR's out there. java.net is not specifically J2EE, but does have useful news and communities. And of course Sun has a lot of whitepapers/articles you might find useful. [ January 10, 2007: Message edited by: Paul Sturrock ]
Make sure you consider latest Java EE 5 technology (EJB 3, JAX-WS, JSF, ...). If you're into bleeding edge Web development, look at DynFaces (JSF + AJAX), Phobos (server-side scripting) and JMaki (wrapper on various AJAX toolkits).
