Strong Java

JavaScript and its competitors do have drawbacks and limitations. Scripting would be too slow for any high-volume data or image-processing work, and complex applications of any kind are poorly suited for direct inclusion in the text of an HTML document. After all, there are only so many lines of code you want to wade through to see the HTML itself.

When you outgrow JavaScript, does that mean you'll need to return to server-side scripting or applications programming? No. JavaScript is just the baby sister of a more robust and powerful language called Java. Like JavaScript, Java is especially designed for the Web. Also like JavaScript scripts, Java programs install and run automatically whenever a Web page is loaded. However, unlike JavaScript, Java programs are compiled into a more compact and efficient form (called bytecodes) and stored in a file separate from the Web pages that may call them.
