J2EE vs Spring Framework

J2EE is a standard, official, specification for a full featured Enterprise Application Framework stack. Includes stuff like Object-Relational Mapping, Security, Web Applications, database connectivity, transactions…

On top of J2EE specifications there are J2EE implementations/application servers like: JBoss, Glassfish, WebSphere, Weblogic.
