I am new to Java development and trying to create dev environment on my laptop. The suggestion by the book it to download j2sdk1.5.0 from site. I can only find JDK 5.0 or j2sdk1.4.2_09. Is JDK 5.0 and j2sdk1.5.0 same development kit? If not could you point me to the site where I can download 1.5 or greater J2SE SDK.

Yes, Java 1.5.0 and Java 5.0 are the same thing, and SDK is the equivalent of JDK.

Thanks Paul. I went through few exercises and it worked. I was confused, since the asked me to look for j2SDK1.5.0 directory for setting the PATH env variable to point to \bin under that. I was working under j2sdk1.4.2_09, I will switch to jdk1.5.0 environment.
