Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 7 SDK Update 2 - Installation Complete

Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 7 (Java EE 7) SDK Update 2 includes GlassFish Server Open Source Edition 4.1.1 (GlassFish Server) and provides several ways that you can quickly learn about the platform and the application server.

Profiles are collections of Java EE technologies and APIs that address specific developer communities and application types. The distributions of GlassFish Server implement two profiles: Full Platform, for developers who need the full set of Java EE APIs for enterprise application development, is installed with the Java EE 7 SDK distribution and Web Profile, for developers who just need the web technologies that are part of the full platform set of Java EE APIs, is installed with the Java EE 7 Web Profile SDK distribution, available from the Java EE downloads page.

Visit the Java EE downloads page for more information about each distribution and to obtain the Web Profile distribution, if desired.
