The jre is the runtime environemnt. The jdk is the developers kit. Get the
java2 jdk from sun's site. There is no source. Deal with it. Or dont use
it. Java is hot enough right now that I feel its worth learning just for
the income potential. I refuse to get into a religious debate about the
lack of source. If you want to hack on java, contact sun. If they need
help, they'll hire you.
