Hi,
I am just getting started. I would like to run some examples I am learning in a beginner book.

In the first steps guide (from this fantastic ranch site) You are directed to get the The "J2SE TM Development Kit 5.0 (JDK TM 5.0)" and a link is provided.

what is there is the following:
Net Beans
J2EE
JDK 5.0 Update

But no straight up - "The J2SE TM Development Kit 5.0 (JDK TM 5.0)" Am I missing something?

so where is it? Has the item changed. Can someone please help.

Thanks. :roll:

"JDK 5.0 Update 5" is just the name of the release ("Update 5" being the patch level). Have at it!

Yes, this is just (more) confusing versioning from Sun. The "update" for 5.0 (also known as 1.5) is, in fact, the complete JDK.

Yes, Java numbering is confusing, jdk1.5.0_05, SDK5.0 update 5, and Java2 5.0 update 5, all refer to the same version of Java.
