Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 5 (Java EE 5) is the latest version
of the premier platform for developing robust, scalable enterprise
applications. Here are some highlights:
\* Easier development. The focus in Java EE 5 is ease of
development. With Java EE 5, there is less code to write -- much
of the boilerplate code has been removed; defaults are used
whenever possible; and annotations are used extensively to
reduce the need for deployment descriptors.
\* EJB -- simpler, better. EJB 3.0 makes programming with
Enterprise JavaBeans technology simpler through the use of Plain
Old Java Objects (POJOs). It also introduces a new persistence
\* Enhanced web services. Java EE 5 includes simplified web
services support and the latest web services APIs, making it an
ideal implementation platform for service-oriented architectures
\* JavaServer Faces, JavaServer Pages Standard Tag Library (JSTL),
Ajax, and more. Constructing web applications is made easier
with JavaServer Faces technology and JSTL. Java EE 5 supports
rich thin-client technologies such as Ajax, technologies that
are crucial for building applications for Web 2.0.
