J2SE 1.4.2_10 SDK is the Software Development kit - what you need to write Java apps.

JRE Java 2 Platform Standard Edition - is the Java Runtime Environment; what you need to run a Java app.

If you download the former; you automatically get the latter. But you don't get the development kit if you only download the JRE.

Personally I prefer Sun's reference edition to that of IBM but that's only cos' I have used it for years and feel comfortable with it.
