Hi Radhey,

Well..... JDK is the Java Development Kit, with all the packages and classes to develop Java Programs. And JSDK is the Java Servlet Development Kit, especially to develop Java Servlets. By the way, do you have any insight into servlets?

If not, try looking at the Servlet section in the Java Forum of this site.

By the way, check these also out


You can load it down from
This site, a complete set of products.

Java Servlet Specification is available Here

And now j2sdk versions are used widely, than the earlier JDK. That stands for Java 2 Standard Edition. there are several Editions like this J2EE, J2ME etc.

For info regarding J2EE,

Check This
and This

If at all, u need something, Just revert back to me.....

I don't think JDSK ( referring to either the Java Software Dev Kit, or the Java Servlet Dev Kit ) is a contemporary term any more.

There is j2ee ( enterprise including web services and web applications ), j2se ( standard or desktop app ), j2me ( micro or embedded ), and then other packages like jwsdk (IIRC) which is related to j2ee.

I'm still navigating the fla ( four letter acronym ) soup myself. To give you an idea though, I'm using tomcat in conjunction with j2se to develop JSP and Servlets. No explicit j2ee package exists for Mac, but to the best of my knowledge, an explicit j2ee package is unnecessary for developing with Tomcat.
