You do know that Java and JavaScript are two different languages right? Let me move this topic to the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript forum for you...

There is no startit() function in JavaScript. It must be a function defined by your program.

What "startit" function are you asking about? As far as I know, "startit" isn't a standard Javascript function of any kind.

Again, we have not idea what a "startit()" function is. If you are having problems with the example in a book, it'd be best to narrow down your confusion and post an SSCCE (Short Self-Contained Correct Example) showing the point of confusion.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
