It can be a JRE or a JDK. JRE are used to run java programs and JDK are used for java development.
The 1.5 part means it is java 5 and the 0_15 part means it's update 15. It is old and it is better to use
java 6 because java 5 has reached it's EOSL (End of Service Life).

Almost. The internal Sun version is 1.5.0 which means Java 5.0 (with the .0 added - they only dropped this in Java 6). The _15 means update 15, so without the 0.

As well as dropping the .0 in the Java version, they also dropped using the internal number for Java 6 releases. So instead of 1.5.0_15 you will now see 6u17 - Java 6 update 17.
