there is no Java 5.0... It's Java 2 platform 5.0 (with compiler version 1.5.0) to make matters more interesting.
The naming system seems to be driven mainly by marketing.

"Java 2" is version 1.2 (and above) of the JDK. Yet another instance of Marketing people getting paid to make things just that little bit less clear...

I think this is just a conspiracy at Sun to make things confusing for both seasoned programmers and newbies alike!
