Differences between JavaScript and Java:

How does JavaScript differ from Java? If you're programming in the languages, then JavaScript has smaller and easier commands than Java. They are different, yet have similarities like most programming languages. They are both Object Oriented. JavaScript as discussed before is scripting that is used to parse webpages, do polls and art galleries and such. Java is used to make games and such via applets...

If you want to see an example, on this site a Java applet is used to run IRC (Internet Relay Chat). Alot of the games and such will run from applets which are basically stand alone programs execuable by your browser. Im not sure if all applets require permission to run, but many do. That kind of gives you an idea of the difference between them.

Now that you know what JavaScript is and what it's used for, im sure you have made some sort of decision wether to enable, disable or prompt you when JavaScript is run when you browse websites. So, lets explore the process of managing JavaScript on your machine.

Controlling JavaScript:

  1. Open your Microsoft Internet Explorer browser and click on TOOLS at the top of the browser window.
  2. From the list that drops down when you click it, scroll to the bottom where it says, "Internet Options..." Now, select SECURITY from the top menu that has appeared.
  3. You will now see several icons or "zones" to apply security settings. Make sure that "Internet" is hilighted (Should be a picture of the earth). Now, towards the bottom you can select "Custom" or "Default" levels of security via button. Select the "Custom Level..." button.
  4. This will bring up a security settings list. You will see that you can adjust "ActiveX Controls" towards the bottom of the ActiveX options it says "Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting" This is where you will enable, disable or prompt the use of JavaScript.

Just a note: if you scroll towards the bottom of the entire list, you'll see "Allow Scripting of Java Applets" - from there you can select if you would like Java applets to be recognized.


There you have it... Nothing special just another informative tutorial on some of the basics. You should now have an idea of Java and JavaScript. You should also be able to better manage the use of JavaScript by your browser. Beware of the nasty JavaScript and angry fat women on unicycles. I hope this tutorial served you well. Peace-
