JDK=Java Development Kit

SDK=Software development kit

Both are the same. They help you in developing code(java in our case)

There is a difference between JRE and JDK. One gives just the virtual machine while the other gives you ALL things needed to develop code(means JRE is included)

The term "JDK", while still in common use, is no longer the term Sun tends to use. JDK 1.1.8 is the last use of the JDK term I could see on the Java downloads section of the Sun site. After that they use the term SDK.

So when somebody says to download the "Java 1.4 JDK" they really mean (using Sun's current terminology) to download the "Java 1.4 SDK".
