JavaScript is complementary to Java. What is it mean?

    @M1sf3t 😖coffeescript. Please don't make me relive that part of my life.

    Lightweight, lol

    Everything is lightweight if you compare it to Sirus A*

    @Gregozor2121 Betelgeuse isn't
    And it's not even the most massive one around
    But point taken

    Yes, javascript is lightweight, now stupid people can do whatever they want with it. Lua is also a lightweight language and some people do unholy stuff with it.

    It was made with sun and has a lot of similarities with JAVA. If you don't think so, go see the firsts cores.

    And yes, most universities suck.

    Java is to JavaScript as ham is to hamster.

    Is a hamster complementary to a ham? 🤔

    @M1sf3t My deities prefer human sacrifice.
    ... Or at least a bigger chunk of meat than hamster can provide. A leg should be sufficient.

    With an ECMA Engine, you can extend Java programs with JS.
    So, yes.

    @Yamakuzure is it just me or does anyone else think that ECMA sounds like a disease or the byproduct of one...

    @jotamontecino and here I am questioning the output of my C++ compiler... I think that we have very different definitions of lightweight ;-)

    @BinaryByter I'm more concerned in what they call non-lightweight. This sets the bar pretty high.

    In the old days we used to have these things called java applets that would allow code to run in the browser. To download and position the applet you would use JavaScript which could be written within HTML in a java-like syntax.

    @spacem Java applets were a plague

    @RememberMe Ahahaha! 😁
    Please go and look what ECMA actually is! 😁 🤘

    Well, one {and only that one} program we use at work, is written in Java, configured with XML and extended wit JavaScript.
    Its Job is to transform metadata from any DMS representation, as we are a specialist in migrating documents from one DMS to another.
    We talk about millions of rows. The biggest I have ever migrated were 1.5 billion documents.
    Believe it or not, but JDBC is insanely fast.

    The program was developed almost 20 years ago and hasn't been changed for almost a decade.

    *Today* we would write it in C++, configure it with JSON and extend it with LUA.

    But it would take months, and the gain would be minuscule.

    @Yamakuzure oh I know what ECMA is, I just always thought it sounded disgusting :p

    Pretty cool how you guys are using it though
