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.

1) .Net versions of Spring and Hibernate are not as good as Java ones. In spite of that I doubt that these days there is a greate difference (from develeoper's point of view) between .net and j2ee for small to medium sized projects.

2) Thanks to Spring plumbing is gone now. Present problem with modern j2ee are view technologies and the whole "threat browser as app enviroment" aproach. JSP and others tend to be a major pain in the ass when compared to something elegant and proper (WinForms for example). Hopefully Flex or JavaFX will take care of that.
