Many of the C# programmers also acquire knowledge of Dot Net. Is there anything which is to Java the way dot net is to C#?

Thanks

Does that mean libraries in packages such as java.lang, java.util, java.net etc?

.NET is not just the standard library. The standard library is called the FCL (Framework Class Library). It's also the tools needed to create and run MSIL (.NET bytecode) applications, such as the CLR (Common Language Runtime).

.NET is to C# as the Java Platform is to Java.

it's called "the DotNET framework" - so its name already implies that there's more to it than just the base for C# or ASP
I don't know DotNET, but by the last post it seems to be the name for the whole environment like lang spec, tool-chain, runtime, etc. So, by this, I don't see where such thing could be for Java the way you try to see. But you could try it the other way around: as C# and ASP use DotNET, the same is true for Java, Scala and Groovy using the, well, I would call it "the Java framework", although this still doesn't fit perfect.
 
Try 100 things. 2 will work out, but you will never know in advance which 2. This tiny ad might be one:
