I'd like to take a poll. I know it's easy for me to do this, because no one reads this, and thus not much work to tally the results :
Question #1 : Do you believe that the JDK is a common term to describe the JRE + 'standard' tools?
Question #2 : Do you expect that you can get a JDK from any vendor, such as IBM, BEA, Sun, Apple?
I say yes to both...
