Versions of Java

Posted 27 January 2009 - 05:36 PM

I just went to the netbeans site and found lots of different options for Java like Java SE, Java ME, Java FX, and Java EE. What is the difference between all of these, and is there one universal version?

Thanks! :pirate: > :ph34r:

Well i'm pretty sure all you need to run netbeans is a java runtime environment. For that you can go to java.sun.com... Then when you download netbeans it should download automatically with the latest version of java from sun.

I'm not talking about the runtime environment. Aren't those different versions of the JDK?

And sorry for posting twice, I accidentally went back and then forward on my browser and it must have posted the topic again.

Java SE is Java Standard Edition - contains the basic set of Java development tools, like the Java compiler and interpreter.

Java EE is Java Enterprise Edition - contains an extended set of tools for Java development, particularly for large-scale applications. It is often compared to .NET Framework (from Microsoft) by the set of tools and libraries it offers.

Java ME is Java Micro Edition - contains the set of tools to develop applications for Java-enabled mobile devices.

JavaFX is a set of tools to create interactive (rich) Internet and Desktop applications, that can contain different multimedia content.

For a beginner, Java SE is enough in my opinion. When you advance, you can use the Enterprise version.

Some might argue that this is not 100% accurate but this is the way I perceived it and it desserves me correctly

SE: Standard edition
EE: Entreprise edition contains all of SE plus stuff for enterprises like mail, database stuff, ....
ME: mobile edition a narrowed down version to fit on Cellular Phone but with sone communication protocols neither the preceding have
FX: specialized in high graphics like for games

If there is a short part from EE that you need in your SE you can download seperatly and add it to your SE
