Just the key important bits you really ought to know. Which was enough to fill an excellent two volume weight lifting exercise of a book by the same name back when there were only half as many APIs in the JDK libraries.

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi

It can depend on the context. On the site it uses the term core to describe J2SE,

Java Technology is organized into these subject areas:

J2SE (Core/Desktop)
J2EE (Enterprise/Server)
J2ME (Mobile/Wireless)
Java Card
Java Web Services
Other Java Technologies
