Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition

Redirected from J2EE

Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition or J2EE is a Standard for developing distributed Multitier architecture applications, based on modular components. The standard uses several technologies, such as JDBC, or CORBA, and extends their functionality with Enterprise_Java_Beans, Java_Servlets, JavaServer_Pages and XML technologies. This allows the developer to create an Enterprise Application that is portable between platforms and scalable, while integrating with several legacy technologies.
