  • Why people call them J2** ?

    People called it Java, when it was 1.1.x They started calling it Java 2 when it was 1.2.x J2EE came, I am not sure, but I guess it was J2EE due to the 1.2.x status.   Now we have 1.5.x and 1.4.x, but they are still called Java 2 SE 1.5.x and Java 2 EE 1.4.x respectively.   Why?
