What is the basic difference between J2SE and J2EE?
what i understood by this is J2SE is the standard edition which can be used to make simple programs with java while J2EE is the enterprise edition which internally uses J2SE.

strange topic to put this question in but the basic difference if as follows:
J2SE defines the basic standard for java. It includes all of the basic API for java including CORBA, RMI, collections, Swing and AWT etc etc
J2EE is directed specifically at enterprise (often server) applications and so it adds api for writing business objects (EJBs), servlets and jsp you probably recognize, then also the new JSP tag libraries, naming and directory services, email, and messaging on top of the j2se platform. All of these API help to create javaapplications that are aimed at large corporations for very large computer systems, talking to customers, managing customers, working with trade partners, business reporting, internal services, etc etc.

This question is not appropriate for the J2ME forum, I'm moving it to Java in General (Beg).
