ECMAScript is the scripting language that forms the basis of JavaScript. ECMAScript standardized by the ECMA International Standards Organization in the ECMA-262 and ECMA-402 specifications.

JavaScript is a subset of ECMAScript and JavaScript is basically an ECMAScript but evolves from its core. Languages ​​like JavaScript, ActionScript, JScript use ECMAScript as its base core.

As a comparison, JavaScript, ActionScript, JScript are 3 different machines, but they all use the same processors, each of their exteriors is different though, and there have been several parts of modifications done to each to make it unique.
