In Java technology,

The SDK stands for Software development kit

JDK stands for Java a development kit

J2SDK stands for Java 2 software development kit

Java 2SDK and JDK, technically speaking is no different and refers to same components of the development kit. It seems that after installation of files, SDK assumes a size of approximately 80 M whereas JDK assumes approximately 200 M.

Please remember that JDK is the normal Java development files, whereas J2SDK consists of JDK along with the SUN application server.

J2EE SDK however comprises of JDK components for J2EE applications along with the Sun application server.

Hello Seth,

SDK or Software Development Kit is a set of development tools that allow applications to be created for certain software packages or platforms; 
 
The JDK or Java Development Kit is the mostly used SDK and it is an extension of SDK, responsible for coding and executing Java programs.
 
A SDK includes sample codes and tech notes or supporting documentation while
JDK includes components that are a selection of programming tools.
 
Therefore you only need to worry about the SDK and the JRE (java runtime environment).

Hope your doubt is clear now.
