Hello
I'm so confused about the versions numbers of JAVA.
I know the JAVA is a programming language and has many technologies like J2SE, J2ME, J2EE
But what is JAVA version (2)? Why we said "J2" what is exactly?
When i browser the sun Inc, portal i can't find (JAVA2)! there's JDK 6 and JRE 6 too!!!
I don't know whats JAVA 2 and JDK 6 ? and JRE?
anyone can explain them?
