Java vs. JavaScript

Most of the people think that Java and JavaScript are the same, but they are not the same. Java and JavaScript are entirely different from each other. They were developed for different purposes. Java is an object oriented programming language that was built for developing applications whereas JavaScript is a scripting language that was built for developing interfaces. HTML documents are necessary for JavaScript as JavaScript cannot run without HTML whereas Java does not need HTLM.  Java is more complex language than JavaScript. Java is used for code the website or application whereas JavaScript is used to make the interface of that website or application. Java programming language must be compiled as machine language whereas JavaScript doesn’t need to be compiled.

Java is an object-oriented programming language that uses both compiler and interpreter. Mostly all software’s are made in Java programming language. Java code can be written on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS. The syntax of C and C++ programming language is quite the same. Java produces browser to run programs that help in making a graphical user interface. Java programming language is in used and trend these days. To write Java code, a programmer needs software development kit (SDK) that includes a compiler, interpreter that is not required in C++.

JavaScript is known as scripting language and JavaScript is use to make web interface. HTML pages are made using JavaScript. Java programming language is a compiler language whereas JavaScript is an interpreted language. As java is compiler language it need to be compiled before running the code whereas there is no need to compile before running. HTLM are used for displaying the static content. HTML that us use in JavaScript is use for Human computer interaction.
