They are fundamentally different.   JavaScript was developed by Netscape to be used in client and server Web programming.  (e.g. browser text scrolling, server side database lookup).  The LiveWire product by Netscape is essentially JavaScript.

Active X, by Microsoft, is a general purpose Windows technology to provide distributed processing (e.g. Word document requires Spreadsheet feeding information to it).  Active X is not specific specific to the Web, but can be used for that purpose.  

A more direct comparison to Active X would be Sun's Java/JavaBeans component model.
