A week late. But given both languages are running on the same VM using the same bytecode and garbage collector, can you explain to me why a properly designed, properly written JS library cannot run as well as the same in Java?

Yes, I realise finding a properly written JS library is a bigger problem than in most languages, which is probably the point you're trying to make. But that's not really the fault of the language.
