The 'java' package are known as standard java package and the 'x' was added to 'java' package to release this package as extension package in java1.2 but as the market demands that this release contains dramatic changes so it should be promoted to java2.0 . And in the promotion all the packages were supposed to release as 'java' so they removed 'x' from all the packages.But 20,000+ deevelopers were affected by this change as they have to change all the import statement containing 'javax' to 'java' .So ultimately sun decided to release it as 'javax' only.

java.* packages are the core Java language packages, meaning that programmers using the Java language had to use them in order to make any worthwhile use of the java language.
javax.* packages are optional packages, which provides a standard, scalable way to make custom APIs available to all applications running on the Java platform.
