Bookmark and Share Question: Please clarify my confusion about Java versions. I hear "Java 2" but JDK is 1.2
Now we are going to use JDK 1.3 on the job and I said that this is "Java 3" and probably soon when JDK 1.4 will be released we will use "Java 4".
My chief said me that I am wrong and he never heard about Java 4.
He insists on it, but cannot explain why.
Maybe because he is chief? Please explain...
Answer: He is right and not because of the fact that he is chief Smile
Although exist one old set of rules that we used on Russian
military service:

1. Chief is right!
2. If chief is not right please see the rule number 1.

I think we have to wait a few years more until Java 3 comes to us.
It is SUN's numbering policy. All JDKs that have numbers 1.2, 1.3, 1.4 are Java 2 JDKs, SDK now...
Difficult to understand but easy to remember...
