As has been pointed out, they're two entirely different things.  The
similarity in names is down to corporate-style bad behaviour of copying
names to jump on someone else's bandwagon.

Additionally, I'll point out that there are separate preferences to
enable/disable each of them in Firefox.  And you may have to look
through plug-ins set-ups regarding Java.
