Is JavaScript the same as Java E-mail
User Rating: / 1

NO! An Amazingly large number of people, including many web designers, don't understand the difference between Java and JavaScript. Briefly it can be summed up as follows:

Java was developed by Sun Microsystems. Java is a full-fledged object-oriented programming language. It can be used to create standalone applications and applet. Applets are downloaded as separate files to your browser alongside an HTML document, and provide an infinite variety of added functionality to the Web site you are visiting. The displayed results of applets can appear to be embedded in an HTML page (e.g., the scrolling banner message that is so common on Java enhanced sites), but the Java code arrives as a separate file.

JavaScript on the other hand was developed by Netscape, is a smaller and simpler scripting language that does not create applets or standalone applications. In its most common form today, JavaScript resides inside HTML documents, and can provide levels of interactivity far beyond typically flat HTML pages -- without the need for server-based CGI (Common Gateway Interface) programs.

Some server software, such as Netscape's SuiteSpot, lets web application developers write CGI programs in a server-side version of JavaScript. Both client-side and server-side JavaScript share the same core JavaScript language, but each side deals with different kinds of objects. Client-side objects are predominantly the components of an HTML web page (e.g., forms, text boxes, buttons). Server-side objects are those that facilitate the handling of requests that come from clients, as well as connectivity to databases.
