Isn't it an abandoned term? I saw on Sun site that they use JDK only in JDK1.0 and JDK 1.1 references. Current "standard edition" release is called "SDK". Is is correct to use "JDK" to refer to the current Java standard edition release?
By default, the last version of 1.3 installed itself in directory C:\jdk1.3.1_03. I believe most predecessors did something similar, willfully defying Sun's own naming conventions. However this heinous bug appears to have been corrected in 1.4. :roll:
