Java and Javascript - mutant half-brothers with no common DNA?

Has anyone out there tried to write a Java program which injected data
back into the HTTP stream? I understand the Javascript can do it. It
seems that making Javascript and Java speak is at best difficult and
at worst really clumsy. Why did Netscape have to call it JavaScript
anyway? It has nothing to do with Java at all. It they intended it to be
an integration tool for Java one wonders what their criteria for
success was.
