    Default Explain the difference between...

    Can anyone explain the difference between Java and Java Script for me please? I'm new(ish) to the whole coding world and didn't realise there was a difference, i though it was just a short and long term.

    Javascript is just a client side scripting language to make webpages seem more interactive and cannot interact with the user's computer any more than messing with the web browser as far as the webpage is concerned. Java has applets, servlets, etc that can actually interact with the user's computer beyond the web browser (interact with the desktop and whatnot). Someone else could probably give a more "in-depth" description; however, these are the basic differences.

    Hope this helps.

    Java is a completely different coding language, I hate when people call javascrpt, java. But Java is kinda of a cool sometimes 3d applet.
    Two examples of java:
