But I am unable to make it work.

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="validation.js">


This is how I have written in my jsp page.

what did you do & what is happening? where is your jsp and where is your js. Check your folder-structures and paths.

how did you test your js validation file?

please use Javascript Console in Firefox in case of error enquiry.
