Java and JavaScript isn’t related in any form, Java is an object-oriented programming language whereas JavaScript is a scripting language. While the name JavaScript was originated as a marketing deal between Sun corporation which developed Java and the inventor of JavaScript which is Netscape which combined its powerful browser with the Java runtime to create a scripting language which has similar syntaxes to java.

Originally it was named LiveScript, then it was renamed JavaScript.
