    I've been confused for a while now about the names, acronyms and
    version numbers that Sun chose for the various releases of Java, there
    seems to be little consistency about how things change from one release
    to the next. Anyway, I've done a little research and attempted to
    summarise things - maybe someone will find this useful:

    comments welcome, tell me if you find a mistake!

    Or you could read up on what Sun has to say on the topic:

    that page gives you the latest instalment in the saga, but the full
    history is far more terrible ;-)
