When the first edition of The J2EE Tutorial was released, the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) was the new kid on the block. Modeled after its forerunner, the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SE), the J2EE platform brought the benefits of "Write Once, Run Anywhere" API compatibility to enterprise application servers. Now at version 1.4 and with widespread conformance in the application server marketplace, the J2EE platform has firmly established its position as the standard for enterprise application servers.
The J2EE Tutorial, Second Edition covers the J2EE 1.4 platform and more. If you have used the first edition of The J2EE Tutorial you may notice that the second edition is triple the size. This reflects a major expansion in the J2EE platform and the availability of two upcoming J2EE technologies in the Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 8, the software on which the tutorial is based.
