Java SE means Java Second Edition. It is the software platform required to run basic Java programs. I don't think core Java is well established terminology. You could call it an umbrella term for all the knowledge required for a programmer to make decent basic Java programs.

It is not Second edition but standard edition. You may want to read the version history of "Oak" here Version history of Java

There is nothing like an informative subject line. And that was nothing like an informative subject line.

Looking at your play on words Ritchie , I would have to guess that you come from one of the countries in UK(England/Scotland maybe). Americans do not write this way. Nicely put.

Oops, you're correct! For some reason I always had Second edition stuck in my head.

And if memory serves, I believe Campbell is Canadian, or at least spent a portion of his life in Canada?

I have spent a portion of my life in Canada. About two hours at 30000 feet, never actually setting foot on the ground, however
