noob question part 3

Why is java called server side script and c++ client side when i can do networking even through c++?
Whenever you find yourself asking "if A is true, then how come B is true?" you should ask yourself "is A actually true?".

Neither Java nor C++ are scripts, be it client-side or server-side. They're programming languages.
A "server-side script" is generally used to refer to a program written in a scripting language such as PHP, Python, or JavaScript, that implements an HTTP server. A "client-side script" in the same context is a script delivered by that server through an HTTP connection that is meant to be executed by the HTTP client (web browser).
Therefore, a Java or C++ program would usually not be referred to as a "script".
