What is the difference between Java and JavaScript?

Java and Javascript are entirely different in scope of their functionalities and technical abilities.

Java is a programming language and strongly typed one too. Java makes use of its inbuilt set of libraries and  Java virtual machine (JVM), which is itself a software program that provides the flexibility of Java programs for running on any computer/hardware device that the JVM is installed and configured.

Java script on the other hand is an object oriented scripting language. It's mainly used for creating HTML pages, validation or processing of user input data and maintaining the data if necessary and expand the capabilities of a web page. Javascript is meant to enrich and enhance the web experience and so compiles and runs  in an internet browser. Its loosely typed and is meant to give the web page a program/software like behavior.
