What exact time is java SE 6 released ?
I didn't find it in the http://java.sun.com/j2se/codenames.html
Since We can only use java SE5 18 months after java SE 6 was released.

This page says December 2006.

Why can't you use Java 5 any longer than 18 months from then? I know of plenty of enterprise instalaltions that still use Java 1.4, and are quite happy with it.

Note the Java platform for version 1.5.x is called J2SE 5.0 (not Java SE 5).
As of version 1.6, the name is simplified to Java SE. So the platform for version 1.6.x would be Java SE 6. Note there is no dot (i.e., it is Java SE 6 not Java SE 6.0).
See Java SE Naming and Versions for more.
