Renaming Java

Starting now, at the 2005 JavaOne Conference (June 27-30), let's all
adopt the new naming system. As future releases of the platform ship,

  • J2SE 6.0 will become Java SE 6 (code name Mustang), and J2SE 7.0 will become
    Java SE 7 (code name Dolphin).
  • J2EE 5.0 will become Java EE 5.
  • J2ME will become Java ME, because it does not have a version number.

When you write, use the following terms at first reference:

  • Java Platform, Standard Edition 6
  • Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 5
  • Java Platform, Micro Edition

Note: That's without the "2" and without the "dot zero."

These changes in the naming scheme of Java are really annoying, and hopfully completed after Mustang was released!
