Java EE is:
- specs (PDF files) about how applications are interacting

   with servers and what servers do
- server implementations, some pure commercial (WebSphere,

   WebLogic), some commercial and open source (JBoss), some pure    open source (Tomcat, Jetty, Glassfish)

The functionality is server centric.
