The JDKs on the Sun Site are full JDKs. The "update" being referred to is the minor fixes applied to them.

For example, "J2SE 5.0 update 6" is the 6 minor revision to JDK 5. It does *not* mean that you need the previous versions pre-installed. It just means that if you have "update 5", you don't have the latest revision installed.
