"JIT compiler" means "Just In Time compiler". It is the part of the JVM that compiles Java bytecode to native machine code at runtime, to make your Java program run faster.

HotSpot is the name of Sun's JIT compiler which is included in Sun's JVM.

So, HotSpot is a JIT compiler. Your question is like asking "What is the difference between an airplane and a Boeing?".
