JAVA -

Java is a programming and scripting language that's primarily used for the web (although it could be used for other stuff too).

Javascript is a scripting language that web designers use to perform various tasks. For example, if you've ever seen buttons on a web page that light up when your mouse goes over them, you've probably seen Javascript in action (in case you're wondering, those are called "Java Rollovers - our inboxnewsletters site uses them at the top of every page).

The menu you see at the left is a Java Applet. A Java Applet is a mini program that runs inside of your web browser.

You can use Java Applets for more than just navigation though. Check out out online Java Arcade to see some Java in action.
