Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Is there a site like stack overflow where you are allowed to ask Java application tech design questions of other members? e.g. Opinions on what aspects of Java EE 6 to use and what design patterns to use?

I know and understand that/why these types of questions are not allowed on StackOverflow, since questions/answers are supposed to be objective and not subjective, but the use case exists where folks want to be able to get expert opinions on tech design. Does a site exist for this?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

I would have though that such questions are eligible on SO... Edit: Ah I see. – DerMike Apr 11 '12 at 13:31
Why not use chat? There ought to be a Java room. – Manishearth Apr 11 '12 at 17:04
