    Yes, Java and JavaScript are two completely different things.

    The story goes that Netscape decided to rename their "LiveScript" as part of a co-marketing deal with Sun Microsystems (the company that developed Java)

    ... on the desktop and (in this regard) more advanced mobile OS'es like Windows Mobile.

    On iOS, all you can do is use a remote desktop to access Java applets.
