Difference Between Java and Java Script

Since “Java” is common that creates lots of confusion to those who are not familiar with programming languages or non technical persons. Both are different and they have their own usability. We can’t compare.

Java and Java Script are different things. JavaScript(JS) is not similar or related to Java.

Just like a Car and a Bike we can’t compare. They have different features and they are used for different purposes. They may have few similarities like Transportation, Fuel Requirement, Speed etc. But that doesn’t mean a Car can replace bike or a Bike can replace a car.

Being more clear we can’t say that a This XYZ bike is better that ABC car.

But we can compare a Bike with another bike, a car with another car.

In the same way we can’t compare Java and Java Script.
