    They are not related in anything but the loosest sense. One is a programming language while the other is scripting language. They were not developed by the same companies.

    This is all available with a quick google search.
    [PHP] | [Perl] | [Python] | [Java] != [JavaScript] | [XML] | [C] | [C++] | [LUA] | [MySQL] | [FirebirdSQL] | [PostgreSQL] | [HTML] | [XHTML] | [CSS]

    First of all, JavaScript is usually written as one word.

    Java and JavaScript are two completely separate languages in many way. When Brendan Eich first wrote JavaScript, JAVA was already available. And JavaScript copies many names and naming conventions from Java (source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JavaScript)

    The original name of JavaScript was MochaScript and then it changed the name to LiveScript and then finally to JavaScript.
