• JavaScript and Java are really only related in name & syntax. JavaScript is a scripting language that borrows syntax from Java. JavaScript is mostly used for interactive web pages. JavaScript is not compiled nor does it need a Java Virtual Machine to be run. JavaScript has recently be standardized by a computer standards group called ECMA and is now sometimes referred to as ECMAScript. Java itself is a programming language that can be compiled into an intermediate language (called byte code) which is run in a "Virtual Machine". Java was created to remove the necessity of creating different compilers for different operating systems. In theory, once a Java program has been compiled into byte code, it can be run on any computer that has a Java Virtual Machine. The group of people that own Java and make changes to the Java programming language (Sun MicroSystems) do not have control of JavaScript.

      Java is an Object Oriented Programming (OOP) language
  • Java is an Object Oriented Programming (OOP) language created by James Gosling of Sun Microsystems. JavaScript is a scripting language that was created by the fine people at Netscape and was originally known as LiveScript. JavaScript is a (very) distant cousin of Java in that it is also an OOP language.
