Seriously, you'll need to give some more context for the question before a meaningful answer is possible.

If you mean
the difference are:
Collection is the root interface of all
collections (i.e. ArrayList, HashSet, LinkedList, etc).
Collections, on the other hand, is class the provides a very useful set of services to manipulate collections through its static public methods.
See JDK API documentation for more details about it.
