When Java 5.0 came out Sun decided to drop the 2 from all their Java names, so now its JSE and JME instead of J2SE and J2ME as well. Technically nothing changed except the changes going from one release to another (like when going from Java 1.3 to Java 1.4).

I guess they dropped the 2 because it caused too much confusion. The official name was Java 1.4 but it was still regarded as Java 2. And when Java 5.0 (a.k.a. Java 1.5) came out the 2 made even less sense.
