Hi..
I get into java not enough time,however, in this stage, i am in doubt about the java abilities,
for example i see javascript to be more able to constract a page than java
or visualBasic (with an excellent enviroment)makes frame components easily and fast.
What makes java especialy diffent than the others
or does the java than the other object-oriented doesn't with the same convenience.
thanks for your patience.
regards..

Remember that Java is a general purpose object-oriented language. It is not just for producing HTML pages. My understanding is that JavaScript is not part of Sun's Java in any way, but a product of Netscape(?) invented to provide added scripting functionality to browsers. They chose to use Java-like syntax, but apart from that there is no connection.

That would be correct. What is hard to believe is that Netscape talked Sun into allowing them to use that precious name in the first place. I suppose they were working on the premise The enemy of my enemy is my friend. M$ that is.
