Hello everyone,
There are a few terminologies I see in Java forums that I don't understand and would really love to now. So please any detailed explanations to the following terminologies would be greatly appreciated.
(1) J2EE
(2) Apache tomcat ( I like how this one sounds)
(3) Servlets
(4) EJB
(5) JSP
&
(6) Apache Cocoon.

J2EE = Java 2 Enterprise Edition
This is mostly used by businesses.
Apache tomcat - Not sure...but I'm pretty sure it has something to do with servers
Servlets = A part of Java, bascially you can create more powerful websites with these.
EJB = Enterprise Java Beans, java Objects that are used with J2EE systems.
JSP = Java Server Pages, Kinda like Servlets but different. This is Java's answer ASP(Active Server Pages)
Apache Cocoon = Not sure, but I think its some software.

Hi friend,
It's normally very difficult to answer very broad open questions like these. Have you tried searching the web for the info that you want?
It's usually a good idea to look around for the info first, using the documentation and/or the Web, digesting the info, and narrowing down the questions to specific topics that you find to be of interest but are proving to be particularly stubborn.
Anyway, a good starting point for these Java technologies would be Sun itself:
j2ee
tomcat
servlets
JSP
Cocoon

I found out that one of the CDs that comes with the Java 2 certification study guide has a very complete tutorial on J2EE ( and thereby contains topics on EJB,JSP etc),from SUN and it contains a lot of examples. I've been been going through the tutorial ever since. It's a whole new world of Java............
