Just the key important bits you really ought to know. Which was enough to fill an excellent two volume weight lifting exercise of a book by the same name back when there were only half as many APIs in the JDK libraries.

It can depend on the context. On the http://java.sun.com site it uses the term core to describe J2SE,


Java Technology is organized into these subject areas:

J2SE (Core/Desktop)
J2EE (Enterprise/Server)
J2ME (Mobile/Wireless)
Java Card
Java Web Services
XML
Other Java Technologies

Ronno:

Please read the JavaRanch Naming Policy and change your display name to comply. (We are looking for a non-fictitous sounding first and last name; note that your previous handle was acceptable in this regard, however, "Ronno" is not).

Thanks,
