Hello,
Am trying to invoke a Javascript file from a JSP, but not successful.
Can u pls help me???
I am doing it in this way in the JSP code.
<head>
<script language="javascript" src = "pagename.js">
</script>
</head>

This doesn't invoke the Javascript at all.
What could be the reason and also the solution please.
Thanks in advance.

what you are doing here is making the javascript file availabe to the JSP code. Have you tried calling any of the functions in your .js fikle and it did not work?

Are you really trying to run the Javascript on the server side? Javascript is primarily a client side technology.
Assuming you want it to run on the client side, I would start with a plain HTML page that does what you want, then try to create exactly that from JSP.
