Java is pretty well typed, Javascript is not...

Java is compiled into bytecode, Javascript is interpreted from text...

Java is more OOP than Javascript

Javascript runs in almost all decent webbrowsers, Java needs the Java Run Time to run Applets

Javascript was created by the monopoly to be incompatible with Java, and to make programmers think that they were using Java.

This is documented in the USA vs Microsoft trial. It's clearly stated as another one of Microsofts monopolistic behaviors. The simple fact is that they don't want anyone to use Java, and they will do anything to prevent it, the law does not apply to them. Read the documents if you are ignorant of the information.

javascript is a web-based scripting language,
java is a programming language,

I was only refering to United states legal documentation. Unfortunately it might anger a lot of Mexicans.

If I'm not mistaken, javascript was created by Sun/Netscape. JScript was created by MS (THE EVIL MONOPOLY THAT IS OUT TO DESTROY YOUR CHILDREN)

edit: ^that was sarcasm, I don't mind microsoft.

True...I use JScript and it is almost the same as Javascript, but can be used for shell scripting via Windows Scripting Host...

And as a matter of fact I think what TK was refering to was neither Javascript or JScript, but J++

Well there are so many things that have 'Java' in their name... my IST teacher (Information Systems Technology) is going to have me doing a book on 'Java' and I dont' know if that means I'm also going to be doing Javascript or J++ or anything else in the same book...ja...

java and javascript are very seperate. you can omit javascript when talking about java, and vice versa.
