• Java: Web
The Java language is a true Object Oriented Programming (OOP) language. Through the Java Virtual Machine and bytecode, Java becomes machine independent and easily portable. Syntactically, Java and core JavaScript have some resemblance. Java is much more powerful. It is a fully typed language, it has class inheritance, a robust class library and much more. JavaScript did not originate from Java. They are unrelated except for name.

• JavaScript: Web
JavaScript is based on and adheres to the ECMA-262 standard. But JavaScript is much more than ECMAScript. JavaScript also includes the technologies for the Document Object Model (DOM) and the Browser Object Model (BOM). The core of JavaScript, however is ECMAScript. In 1995, Netscape (in a alliance with Sun Microsystems) released JavaScript in Netscape Navigator 2.0. JavaScript was formally know as LiveScript. At about the same time MicroSoft was developing a web scripting language called JScript. These two scripting languages and others prompted the effort to develop a standard for a Web scripting language. Now we have the ECMA-262 standard that describes ECMAScript. All popular web browsers are attempting to adhere to the standard.
