Version numbering in Java
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 25 July 2004I've just spotted J2SE 5.0 Beta on Sun's download site ... so I'm guessing that they've changed the numbering system.
Java 2 1.2
Java 2 1.3
Java 2 1.4
Java 2 5.0
OK - I guess that "1" had become pretty redundant - I can't imagine what else would have made it change
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 25 July 2004Guess rather confirmed - the documentation says Its external version number is 5.0 and internal version number is 1.5.0. then goes on to have a diagram labelled Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition v1.5

This version numbering
Solaris 2.8 = Solaris 8 = SunOs 5.8
Solaris 2.9 = Solaris 9 = SunOs 5.9
SunOs 5.9 indicates (I believe) System 5? Hmmm.
Basically who knows what they're thinking.

To see a fine lady upon a white horse;
With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes
She shall have music wherever she goes.
I think I just found a piece of Graham Ellis RegEx!!!
