It doesn't matter what context you use it in; J2EE or J2SE. Bolier plate code simply refers to code that isn't directly implementing business logic, but at the same time is required to support it. It's typically repetative in nature. A classic example would be try/catch/finally. I hope this helps.

I dont think you really need to worry about it... Its just a normal term in english applied to code :-)..
Have you heard of the term "BuBu" (pronounced "BooBoo")? I recently came across this. It means BUsiness Bug!! :-)

Note that it's boiler plate code, not "bolier".

As Jonathan already said, with this people mean the supporting code around the code that contains the real business logic. Usually, boiler plate code doesn't require you to do a lot of thinking, but it does cost you time to implement it. Tools such as IDEs often contain support to (partially) generate the boiler plate code for you.
