What is the difference between Programmer and Programmer Analyst?

I am a java programmer, my friend is a programmer analyst. Although we do similar work, his salary is less than mine. In contrary, I have another friend in the same company. His salary is higher than mine, yet he is also a programmer analyst. I really do not understand which one is a better post? A Java Programmer, or a Programmer Analyst.
