Java Sun's starting to phase out mobile Java that's been the standard on cellphones and other small devices in favor of their standard edition, which are made for PCs everywhere. Sun VP James Gosling's reasoning for shifting everyone over to Java Standard Edition is because 'cellphones and TV set-top boxes are growing up', meaning they're getting enough processing power to handle all the demands of full-featured Java.

I don't know how true that is. The more popular frameworks have already been ported over (hibernate, spring), and I find that The .net Way scales up a hell of alot better then The Sun Way scales down. I would still recommend J2EE for the largest of projects, but that really doesn't cover a huge amount of stuff. The problem with J2EE is that it is far too over engineered, and you and to do ANYTHING you have to write a ton of "plumbing" code. Once you have that done, it tends to work very well, but from a purely development point of view, I am a hell of alot more happy working with .net.

DISCLAIMER: I havnt really done J2EE work for about 4 years now, although before that it is all I did for about 3 1/2 years. So if something changed recently, I wouldnt know.
