The main differences between the two are:

  1. Body.Onload() event will be called only after the DOM and associated resources like images got loaded, but jQuery's document.ready() event will be called once the DOM is loaded i.e., it wont wait for the resources like images to get loaded. Hence, the functions in jQuery's ready event will get executed once the HTML structure is loaded without waiting for the resources.

  2. We can have multiple document.ready() in a page but Body.Onload() event cannot.

  3. We can have more than one document.ready() function in a page where we can have only one body onload function.

  4. document.ready() function is called as soon as DOM is loaded where body.onload() function is called when everything gets loaded on the page that includes DOM, images and all associated resources of the page.
