There is no direct correlation, other than the fact that they both are a form of programming language, and a way to instruct a computing environment to perform specific tasks. Their paradigms are completely different, and they are not formed of the same types of features. Let me highlight some of the key features of each language:
- a functional language with basic facilities for forcing object oriented notation, despite not being object oriented at all.
- a dynamic, loosely typed language that is event driven
- typically used in the web browser, though there are server side implementations that are catching on.
- a mostly object oriented language
- a static, strongly typed language
- typically used for implementing very powerful server based processes which are cross platform compatible
