Hi,
This is really beginner's question! But still: what is the difference?. Also what is the difference b/w JDK and J2SDK? For later one, I think JDK does not support JSP/Servlets and J2SDK supports J2SDK. By support I mean library.


Bye,
Viki.

Difference b/w J2EE n J2SE?

J2SE = Java 2 Standard Edition
J2EE = Java 2 Enterprise Edition

J2SE includes the APIs as documented at http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs. Depending on how you interpret that diagram, the J2SE platform also includes the Java language and runtime environment.

J2EE includes additional APIs for enterprise (server-side) Java programming, including APIs for Servlets, JSPs, JavaMail, EJBs, and JMS.

what is the difference b/w JDK and J2SDK

No difference, really. JDK might be referring to a pre-Java 2 v1.2 development kit (e.g. the Java 1.0 development kit).

JDK does not support JSP/Servlets

I'm not sure of what you mean. J2SE alone does not include the APIs for developing Servlets and JSPs. Those APIs are found in J2EE.

J2SDK supports J2SDK

Typo?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
