What is the difference between the SDK and JRE? Oh yes and regarding this forum is there any kind of User CP so you can keep track of your postings?

Jared, I believe the JRE simply includes the JVM (java virtual machine) allowing you to run Java programs, whereas the SDK also includes a compiler allowing you to write Java programs. I think there's some other tools that come with the SDK, such as an applet viewer. Again, the difference being that the SDK includes tools and utilities for creating Java programs as opposed to just running them.
