The two languages that are being discussed here, are:
What is Java?
A programming language that is object-oriented, network centric and multi-platform compatible, Java is utilised as a computing platform and was developed by the Sun Microsystem and released in 1995. This was later taken over by Oracle Corporation. Java can run on virtual machines. Here, the code for Java needs to be compiled.
|This is OOP or Object-Oriented programming language||This is an object based scripting language|
|A stand-alone language||Not stand-alone, incorporated into HTML program for operation|
|Strongly typed language is used, and data type of variable is decided before declaring or using it||Language utilised is loosely typed, so that the user does not have to worry about the data type before the declaration|
|Code has to be compiled||The code is all text|
|Slightly more complex||Easier in comparison|
|Used to perform complex tasks||Complex tasks cannot be executed|
|Large amount of memory is required||Memory consumption is lesser|
|Stored in the / client host machine under the “Byte” code||Stored in host or client machine as “source” code|
|Is static and the code once written can be run on any computing platform||Dynamic and is a cross-platform language|
