    Default Java and Javascript??

    Java is a programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995. There are lots of applications and websites that will not work unless you have Java installed, and more are created every day. Java is fast, secure, and reliable. From laptops to datacenters, game consoles to scientific supercomputers, cell phones to the Internet, Java is everywhere!

    JavaScript (JS) is a dynamic computer programming language.[5] It is most commonly used as part of web browsers, whose implementations allow client-side scripts to interact with the user, control the browser, communicate asynchronously, and alter the document content that is displayed.[5] It is also being used in server-side network programming (with Node.js), game development and the creation of desktop and mobile applications.

    Tell me about Java and Javascript. Are they different? Which one is better? Why?

    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Yes, preferably card games because Java is interpreted, so it's slow; start with a simple, very slow card game; bridge will do fine. Oh, and JavaScript is a system programming language because it was the foundation for C.

    Now Jos, we all know that the JavaScript was the basis for the first assembly language. It was invented by Ken Iverson.

    Ah, yes, Ken; 'Nanook' we used to call him, Ken Nanook Iverson, the old eskimo and inventor of deep fried and frozen fish fillet. And JavaScript of course; how could I forget good ol' Nanook ...
