SD Times' David Rubinstein explains, "A month after Sun Microsystems Inc. quietly announced the release of the Java 2 Enterprise Edition 1.3 specification, critics are claiming pieces of the spec remain unfit for deployment, and complain that a uniform, Java way of creating and consuming Web services still is not baked into the platform."

However, according to some Sun insiders, Web services will be the emphasis in next year's release of Java 2EE v.1.4.

Do you agree or disagree with what's been said about J2EE 1.3? What are your experiences?
