Java / Java Script


Java is an applications programming language which was developed by SUN Microsystems in 1995. Similar in look and feel to C++, Java was designed for the distributed environment of the Internet. It is based upon object orientation, and the resultant code is portable; which means that Java applications can run on many operating systems, not just the system which compiled it.

Java Script is an interpreted scripting language; similar in capability to Microsoft's Visual Basic or SUN Microsystems' Perl scripting language. Java script is interpreted, not compiled, and therefore slower to execute than compiled code; but it is easier to maintain and fast enough for small applications.
