You can pull down the Glassfish stuff if that's the server container you
want to use. I don't because I use Tomcat. The EE part really comes from
a) Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers (the plug-ins that make Eclipse do
web platform) and b) the myriad, peculiar third-party stuff I download
most of which doesn't come from the Glassfish download. In particular, I
use Tomcat and Jersey.
Same answer if you use JBoss.
I do remember the SE vs. EE distinction you're talking about in the Java
download and I used to do that, but until you asked, I had almost
forgotten about it. That's no longer an important dichotomy even if it
exists. I find the EE (Glassfish) download to be more crap to sort
through than I wanted and it takes up space needlessly. Others may,
however, see it differently so this is just my own two cents.
Best of luck,
