The JDK is version 1.5, which represents Java SE version 5.0.
There is no J2SE 5.0.

Sun Marketing went overboard to make the version numbering more confusing than it already was, especially by introducing that scheme just before the product went final and people were already using the release candidates which were J2SE 1.5...

They try to explain their "logic" in Version 1.5.0 or 5.0? Although this might be a continuation of their effort to confuse.

Just focus on this line near the bottom...
...1.5.0 refers to exactly the same platform and products numbered 5.0.
