JDK = Java Development Kit (or J2SE Development Kit) and
J2SDK = Java 2 Software Development Kit - I believe this is an "old" acronym that is not used anymore

Check the Sun's java site out for more info:

BTW .. I'd be changing your name real quick soft tips .. real or "real sounding" names are required.
