Java is a compiled language which creates stand-alone executable code.
Java was created by Sun Microsystems. You might want to go to their web page to learn about Java 2
just so you know dave, there are numerous topics about this if various forums... i'm using a 28.8 right now, so I'm not gonna search through to find them, but I recommend that you do so.
I believe that JS is just ripping off sun and riding on their laurels with that name. it is (as far as I know) not related to java in anyway except by name.
I thought that Java2 was just the newer version of Java, but I'm not nearly as sure about this one. Usually, they just give newer versions newer version numbers, so there may be more difference between these two than i thought.
anway.. hope that helps a little
actually JS is now officially called EcmaScript

Java 2 is actually Java version 1.2
Their is also 1.1, and 1.0
Most browsers support 1.1 fully, but not guranteed they support 1.2.
It is just an update to Java. The biggest difference from 1.2 to 1.1 is an updated way to do gui stuff called SWING.
differences between these languages?
Also, is Java2 an updated verion of the Java language?
swing rox *****, it's a **** shame it takes so long for browsers to start supporting this stuff, cause by the time that they do, there's already something better out that you have to learn
