    Question Is it true???

    Hi all!! I'm new and I've no much idea about this matter:

    I'd like to create a navigator interface which lets me,
    under special conditions,run or giving the control to another
    external programm(e.g. MATLAB)

    Could I use JAVA for this?Should I use JavaScript?What's the
    difference between them?

    Thank U .Bye

    Java and JavaScript are two completely different languages, and have nothing to do with each other. Java is a platform independent programming language. JavaScript is a language that was designed with pages of data in mind, like webpages, or pdfs, so it can manipulate things on a page, and perform calculations, but it can't read from or write to files. that means, that you'd need a Java applet (a Java program embedded in a webpage) in order to open another program. However, i don't think it would work in both browsers, and i also don't think it would work on the internet, only on an intranet.

    Thank you Joh6nn,


    I've found some codes which connect MATLAB(a digital image processing programme)and JAVA so I'm sure I could run MATLAB inside JAVA programming but I don't know if JAVA has enough tools for programming the navigator interface:


    if I've understood well I could programm it using JAVA which wouldn't work in Internet,couldn't I? I'm doing a tutorial for my University and it'll be only for internal use,so I wouldn't need Internet


    Thank you again,bye
