That is because the Java 2 term has simply become confusing. Java version 7 is effectively Java 2 version 1.7 (try taking the Java 7 link and replace the 7 in the url with 1.7.0). The Java 2 part was dropped for version 6 precisely to avoid the confusion that this thread highlights. The fact is the original Java 1 is entirely irrelevant. There is only one Java line and that is Java 2 which is now known simply as Java. The latest version of this is Java 6 and Java 7 is the new release that might come out eventually.
