Does the version of the J2EE standard being used force one to use a particular version of the JDK or a particular JVM. Given that code compiled with different version of the JDK require a particular JVM version, does J2EE in any way enter into this scenario?

The reason for 1.3 would be functionality; the _01 would be
probably some little bug fix that J2EE needs.

There is a period at the end of the URL. Get rid of that and it should work.
