I just remember answering that question before, so I used the forum's search tool to search this forum (beginners) for "J2EE" and containing my member number. - It gave me 3 hits.

Obviously you would not have known about my having answered this, therefore your search would be limited to a key term such as "J2EE" which would result in ~152 hits. If you changed your search to "J2EE J2SE", "J2EE JDK" or "J2SE Standard" you would get a smaller number of topics. The "J2EE J2SE" search returns 29 hits, many of which are specific to questions about what the difference between the two is. It's a very common question.

Try a Google search of J2EE J2SE Differences or something similar and you'll get some more information.
