Java EE 5 Technologies

Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 5 (Java EE 5) focuses on making development easier, yet retains the richness of the J2EE 1.4 platform. Offering features such as JavaServer Faces (JSF) technology and web services APIs, Java EE 5 makes coding simpler and more straightforward, but maintains the power that has established Java EE as the premier platform for web services and enterprise application development.

The Java EE 5 SDK and Java Application Platform SDK provide support for Java EE 5 specifications, and the Java Application Platform SDK features additional runtimes such as Open ESB, Portlet Container, and Sun Java System Access Manager.

Want to learn more about the technologies that comprise the Java EE 5 platform? Here's a list of the technologies, and their specifications, for Java EE 5 — starting with the umbrella Java EE 5 specification. See the Java EE 6 page for the list of Java EE 6 technologies.

Specification downloads are the specs' final releases. Please check the individual JSR pages for download updates such as maintenance releases.

The name of the Java platform for the enterprise has been simplified. Formerly, the platform was known as Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE), and specific versions had "dot numbers" such as J2EE 1.4. To strengthen the association with the Java platform, the short name is now Java EE, and to simplify the version number, the leading "1." is dropped. So the latest version of the Java platform for the enterprise is Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 (Java EE 6).

Java EE Web Services Technologies

Specification downloads are the specs' final releases. Please check the individual JSR pages for download updates such as maintenance releases.

This API provides support for RESTful (Representational State Transfer) Web services in the Java platform.

Technologies JSR Download
Java API for XML-Based Web Services (JAX-WS) JSR 224 Download spec

The Java API for XML Web Services (JAX-WS) is the centerpiece of a newly rearchitected API stack for Web services, the so-called "integrated stack" that includes JAX-WS 2.0, JAXB 2.0, and SAAJ 1.3. The integrated stack represents a logical rearchitecture of Web services functionality in the Java WSDP. JAX-WS is designed to take the place of JAX-RPC in Web services and Web applications.

Technologies JSR Download
Java Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB) JSR 222 Download spec

Java Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB) provides a convenient way to bind an XML schema to a representation in Java code. This makes it easy for you to incorporate XML data and processing functions in applications based on Java technology without having to know much about XML itself.

JSR 181, Web Services Metadata for the Java Platform, defines an annotated Java format that uses Java Language Metadata (JSR 175) to enable easy definition of Java web services in a J2EE container.

Technologies JSR Download
Java API for XML-Based RPC (JAX-RPC) JSR 101 Download spec

You can use the Java API for XML-based RPC (JAX-RPC) to build Web applications and Web services, incorporating XML-based RPC functionality according to the SOAP 1.1 specification.

Technologies JSR Download
Java APIs for XML Messaging (or SOAP with Attachments API for Java (SAAJ)) JSR 67 Download spec

The SOAP with Attachments API for Java (SAAJ) (also known as Java APIs for XML Messaging (JAXM)) provides a standard way to send XML documents over the Internet from the Java platform.

The JAXR API provides a set of distributed registry services that enables business-to-business integration.

Streaming API for XML (StAX) is streaming Java-based, event-driven, pull-parsing API for reading and writing XML documents. StAX enables you to create bidrectional XML parsers that are fast, relatively easy to program, and have a light memory footprint.

Java EE Web Application Technologies

Specification downloads are the specs' final releases. Please check the individual JSR pages for download updates such as maintenance releases.

Java Servlet technology provides Web developers with a simple, consistent mechanism for extending the functionality of a Web server and for accessing existing business systems. A servlet can almost be thought of as an applet that runs on the server side--without a face. Java servlets make many Web applications possible.

JavaServer Faces technology simplifies building user interfaces for JavaServer applications. Developers of various skill levels can quickly build web applications by: assembling reusable UI components in a page; connecting these components to an application data source; and wiring client-generated events to server-side event handlers.

JavaServer Pages (JSP) technology provides a simplified, fast way to create dynamic web content. JSP technology enables rapid development of web-based applications that are server- and platform-independent.

The JavaServer Pages Standard Tag Library (JSTL) encapsulates as simple tags the core functionality common to many Web applications. JSTL has support for common, structural tasks such as iteration and conditionals, tags for manipulating XML documents, internationalization tags, and SQL tags. It also provides a framework for integrating existing custom tags with JSTL tags.

This specification establishes standardized tools for correlating Java virtual machine byte code to source code of languages other than the Java programming language.
