Sun, as I believe I've ranted before, shouldn't be allowed to name or number anything. They're just not very good at it.

The release of the next version of Java is approaching, and because they've made a mess of these things, as usual, Sun has been forced to provide a handy document to explain what it's called. The short answer is "it depends".


I like that last document, because its very first sentence is an (unintentional, no doubt) admission of failure:

Naming is a key component of a well-architected branding strategy.
