it's my birthday today..
A question for US or UK guys.
About J2EE.
Do you pronounce :
"J - two - ee - ee "
or "J - two - ee " ?

Also is 'data' pronounced
'day-taa'
or
'dar-taa' ??
(I've had friends pulled up for their pronounciation in interviews over this though I can't remember which was correct! maybe it comes down to my Kiwi accent!)

Actually I know in some countries, the second "ee" is not pronounced.
That's why I wondered if in US it was the same or name.
Thanks Cindy for the colored Happy Birthday, it's cute.

Only people from Minnesoter would pronounce it "day-ter".
P.S. Happy Birfday Bill!
