i have a clarification regarding J2EE and hope u don't mind answering such a basic level question since i am a newbie to it.
i just wanted to know what a J2EE compliant server is? if i want to use J2EE in my applications, what software should i use?
and if i use XML,JSP,Java Beans etc in my application, can i say that i am using J2EE?
thanks in advance

Well, JSP is part of the J2EE platform. XML and JavaBeans aren't, but still very useful.
J2EE is an aggregate of other technologies, like EJB, Servlets, XML-RPC, and so forth. So, a J2EE-compliant server will be one that provides the requisite services. As for what software you should use--that depends on what your program is doing.

You can use the latest and greatest of all "Web Logic".
If you want to go the open source route you can opt for "JBoss".

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
