Why Move to Java EE?

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
API.

\* 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
(SOA).

\* 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.

j2ee vs .net:--

friends, right now j2ee is moving wid the .net for web applications....n we don't know the future..........j2ee might be very far away from the .net who knows........

n moreover .net devlopment tools are quite superior than j2ee.

so friends be careful.....when u go to opt one among them......

Arun,

I'd recommend you download the latest JDK with the NetBeans IDE. It's wonderful for desktop programming, and will save you a lot of programming time.

Download the two together at:
http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp
It's the third download item on the page.

You can also do EE programming if you add the EE download as well. It's a great platform to use.

JDK 6 Update 2 with NetBeans 5.5.1
Are you mean to download this one.

The reason that there are multiple "editions" of Java is that Java is not just a programming language - it is a platform. Java includes the execution environment that programs run in, and the standard libraries bundled with them.

To learn the language, you will want the Standard Edition (SE).

To build web and enterprise applicatiuons - applications that support multiple concurrent users, transactions, access to pluggable resources and so on, youl will need to learn Enterprise Edition EE.

As for versions - the current version of Java is version 6. It's that simple.
