IPFS vs Web3j: What are the differences?

IPFS : Protocol for storing and sharing hypermedia in a distributed file system. It is a protocol and network designed to create a content-addressable, peer-to-peer method of storing and sharing hypermedia in a distributed file system; Web3j: Lightweight Java and Android library for integration with Ethereum clients. It is a lightweight, highly modular, reactive, type safe Java and Android library for working with Smart Contracts and integrating with clients (nodes) on the Ethereum network. This allows you to work with the Ethereum blockchain, without the additional overhead of having to write your own integration code for the platform.

IPFS belongs to "Blockchain" category of the tech stack, while Web3j can be primarily classified under "Java Tools".
