I've read online that J2EE 1.4 uses Java 1.4 SDK. My current environment that was originally setup by someone else says it uses J2EE 1.4 with Java 1.5 SDK. Is that possible? Isn't the latter environment called Java EE 5 now days?


Thanks for any clarification.

That's only partially correct. J2EE 1.4 needs *at least* JSE 1.4, but it can work with newer versions.

Yes.

No. JEE 5 is a newer version of *JEE* (formerly known as J2EE), not of *JSE*.
