See here: Interpreted language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Java is interpreted (just in time compilation)...and tends to be a resource hog and performance dog. C on the other had is precompiled and operates at very low level.

Java can be platform independent (in theory) vs C requires effective re-writes of applications on various platforms (Mac, Linux, WinNT, etc).
