Definition of J2EE 

J2EE applications are made up of components such as JavaServer Pages (JSP), Java servlets, and Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) modules. These components enable software developers to build large-scale, distributed applications. Developers package J2EE applications in Java Archive (JAR) files (similar to zip files), which can be distributed to production sites.
