Hi Agasthi...

SAP netweaver is a common name and normall it does not point to any specific product, and it consists of the following products:

SAP NetWeaver Web AS ABAP

SAP NetWeaver Web AS JAVA

SAP NetWeaver Portal

SAP NetWeaver BW&BI

SAP NetWeaver PI(XI)

SAP NetWeaver MDM ...

Normally the version here is SAP NetWeaver 7.0x.

SAP Composition Environment (SAP NetWeaver CE) is a robust platform that enables you to develop Java and composite applications from scratch and on top of existing services, the version is CE7.1x and CE7.2x.

So simply you can understand SAP NetWeaver CE as a higher version of SAP NetWeaver J2EE implimentation.

In case you want to test/use portal with CE, I think you can use the following edition:
