Eh? Javascript and Java have nothing to do with each other. They're two separate languages serving two entirely separate functions. Java is a cross-platform compiled language that runs on the JVM, and can be run on practically anything (and probably its dog). Javascript (officially ECMAscript) is a scripted language most commonly used to provide client-side interactivity to web pages. They're not even by the same development team. Can't compare the two just because they have similar names.

You can say Java does more than Javascript.
I'm aware the syntax is different, but Java is more versatile than its cousin script.
Meaning you'll use Java for jobs more often than you'll be using Javascript.

Thaaaaaanks for noticin' me.

I'm not talking about the syntax, lol. The two languages serve entirely different purposes. Try telling the web development community that they'll be using Java more than Javascript. Or trying telling the cross-platform app community they'll be using Javascript more than Java.

And they are not cousins. They are in no way related.

Javascript was called Javascript entirely because it sounded cool back in the nineties. It has absolutely zero to do with Java.

I just remembered, though you probably already found out. When you get comfortable with Java, you can refer to the Java Documentation for help.
