It's just the code name for the fact that a specific JDK (JDK 6 in
this case) contains a HotSpot from a newer JDK (JDK 7, which you are
not allowed to call JDK7 until now:). This didn't happend in the past
(i.e. in Java releases before 6) and was started with JDK 6u4 which
contained HS10 from JDK7.
