Hi, I have 2 javascript files
test1.js and test2.js
I want to call a function in test1.js from a function in test2.js
So i need to do something similar to a java import.
Can this be achieved?

it's easy to call a function from another function
for example function a() from 1.js want call function x() from 2.js
OK look
code for a():

and code for x():

so as you see calling methods(functions) not so hard

and about link(import) 1.js and 2.js to document
it's as easy as ABC
just in your head add these guys

Once both files are included in the page, they all become part of the same scope.

If you are not sure that a file is added you can do a simple check

if(typeof foo !== "undefined"){ alert("nope"); }

and you can add it in with document.createElement

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
