Spring is an application framework, not just a web framework; it can just as well be used in desktop applications as in web applications. It doesn't depend on JEE (and is in no way a competitor to it).

You can use both J2EE and Spring in the same application. Spring can replace parts of J2EE.

... Or in some cases, Spring can enhance existing J2EE functionality. For example, I use Spring Security, which provides a better authentication model but I'm still using J2EE authorization in some places since Spring appropriately sets the Principal value in the request object of servlet invocations. So I can use request.isUserInRole() to enforce fairly granular authorization rules. At the same time, I can use simple Spring security configuration to handle more coarse grained authorization rules.
