As far as I know SDK stands for Software Development Kit and it is a new name for JDK.

"javaboy",
The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements.
Thanks.

SDK means Software Development Kit
The Java 2 SDK, Standard Edition, v 1.2.2 provides features and functionality over and above JDK 1.1 software. http://java.sun.com/products/jdk/1.2/

jdk stands for java development kit
and sdk software development kit.
and what's the difference between two is
sdk is the installable version of jdk.
if you've jdk then you dont need to install it just copy it
in your hard disk.
and if you've sdk then you can install it.
and after installation it appears as jdk1.x
where x is 1, 2 or 3.
