I would say the latter is more specific than the former.

People who are comfortable writing JAVA wouldn't need any of these but the
second best thing for others would be a capability to handle it in their own
applications. A url can be the simplest way to invoke things in respective
application. Doing it via javascript sounds like a round-about way of doing
it.
