J2ME is Java 2 Micro Edition and is used for smaller platforms (mobile phones, PDAs, embedded systems)

J2SE is Java 2 Standard Edition and is primarily targetted at the desktop.  It includes APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that allow you to develop (almost) any kind of desktop application.

J2EE is Java 2 Enterprise Edition and includes several "enterprise" or "server" extensions including, but not limited to JSP/Servlet support, Enterprise Java Beans, Database access etc.

J2RE doesn't exist.  You may mean JRE, which is the Java Runtime Envrionment.  This is just the Virtual Machine that is necessary to execute Java code on a system.  This doesn't include the development tools.

JBuilder is an IDE from Borland that provides the editing, building, debugging facilities to create Java applications (on all of the above platforms).

Java Media Framework are APIs that extend the J2SE facilities to include streaming media and suchlike.

See http://www.javasoft.com for details of all of the above (except JBuilder).

For JBuilder and many other IDEs, have a look at another question in this TA:

and to round out jimmack nicely written answer:
Visual J++ is an IDE from Microsoft, supporting Microsoft's version of Java, which is not Java at all.  Avoid it.

>> Avoid it.

Nice one allelopath ;-)
